Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let fix \(x_0\in [0,1]\), By definition, we must find \(\delta >0\) for given \(\epsilon >0\) such that \(xx_0<0\) implies \(f(x)f(x_0)<\epsilon \). Choose \(\delta=\epsilon\), the definition becomes \(xx_0<\delta\) implies \(xx_0<\epsilon\). Hence f is continuous. Do the same with \(x_0\in [2,4]\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Other proof is valid also, since [0,1] and [2,4] are compact sets, hence f is continuous but I am not sure whether you study compact sets or not.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Loser66 you proved for \(f(x) = x\) We need to prove if for \[f(x) = \begin{cases} 1 & 0\le x\leq 1 \\ 2 & 2\leq x\leq 4 \end{cases}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I need to know what form he wants, I think, because of the subspace, this is a topology question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Suppose \(U\) is opoen in \(\mathbb{R}\). Then \(U= \cup_{i\in I}B_i\) for some index \(I\) where the \(B_i\) are intervals of the form \((a,b)\). Now \(f^{1}(\cup_{i\in I}B_i)=U_{i\in I}f^{1}(B_i)\). Consider \(i\in I\). If \(1\in B_i\) and \(2\notin B_i\) then \(f^{1}(B_i)=[0,1]\) which is open in the subspace \([0,1]\cup[2,4]\) because \([0,1]=(1, 1.5)\cap [0,1]\cup [2,4]\) If \(2\in B_i\) and \(1\notin B_i\) then \(f^{1}(B_i)=[2,4]\) which is open in the subspace \([0,1]\cup[2,4]\) because \([2,4]=(1.5, 5)\cap [0,1]\cup [2,4]\). If both \(1, 2\in f^{1}(B_i)\) then \(f^{1}(B_i)=[0,1]\cup[2,4]\) which is open in \([0,1]\cup[2,4]\) because it is the entire subspace. Finally, if \(1,2\notin f^{1}(B_i)\), then \(F^{1}(B_i)=\emptyset\) which is of course open. So for each \(i\in I\) we have \(f^{1}(B_i)\) is open and thus so is \(\cup_{i\in I}f^{1}(B_i)=f^{1}(\cup_{i\in I}B_i)=f^{1}(U)\) showing that \(f\) is indeed continuous.
