i cant get it

4. ## Re: True or False of convex sets

Is the red figure convex? What about the blue one? If you can't answer the first question, you need to study the definition of a convex set and read about examples of sets that are convex and not convex. If this is the case (and note that I only want to say the following if you can't answer the first question), then it is unreasonable to believe that you can solve a problem without knowing the definition, and it would be a waste of time to involve other people in helping you to solve the problem.

I can only conclude from this that you do not know what a convex set is- which makes me wonder why you were given such a problem. A set is "convex" if and only if, given any two points in the set, every point on the line segment between the two points is also in the set. Can you use that, and the pictures emakarov shows, to answer the questions.

Note that you do not get a "choice" of helpers here. emakarov provided sound guidance toward answering your question ... if you choose not to accept it, then I advise you go to another site for seeking help.
