**Let ε>o and aεX**.

Since and

,then there exist:

and such that:

if and xεX ,then <ε/2 for all,x............................................. .......................................1

and such that:

if and xεX, then <ε/2 for all ,x................................................ ...........2.

**Choose = min{ }**

**Let |x-a|<δ and xεX.**

then and and by (1) and (2) we have:

**BUT.**

Norm (h(x)-h(a)) = ||h(x)-h(a)|| =

Thus ,for all ,a in X AND hence the function ,h is continuous over X
