Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i still think there is something missing X and Y are metric spaces, with some metric defined on each what does \((x_1,y_1)\) mean? are you trying to define a metric on the product?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my guess is that you are asked to show that D IS a metric on the product space, where \[D((x_1,y_1),(x_2,y_2):=\max d_x(x_1,x_2), d_y(y_1,y_2)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i don't understand wat the question means does it means i have to prove that LHS=RHS or showing that it is the metric space

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is, you are defining the metric on the product as the max of the distances component wise, and you need to check that is satisfies all the axioms of a metric space

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is what i was asking what is the actual question it looks like you have defined a metric, and you want to prove that it is one, that is, that is satisfies the axioms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for example you need to check that \[D\left((x_1,y_1), (x_2,y_2)\right)=0\iff (x_1,y_1)=(x_2,y_2)\] etc, that is check each axiom
