Define the function f + g : D R by ( f + g )( x ) = f ( x ) + g ( x ). (a) If f ( D ) and g ( D ) are bounded above, then prove that ( f + g )( D ) is bounded above and sup[( f + g )( D )] sup f ( D ) + sup g ( D ). Proof. Let sup f ( D ) = m and sup g ( D ) = n . We know that x D, f ( x ) m and g ( x ) n , then f ( x ) + g ( x ) m + n and since f ( x ) + g ( x ) = ( f + g )( x ) ( f + g )( x ) m + n thus ( f + g )( x ) is bounded above by m+n and by the completeness axiom ( f + g )( x ) has a least upper bound, lets call it d , since d is the smallest of the upper bounds, d m + n . (b) Find an example to show that a strict inequality in part (a) may occur. Let D = { x : 0 x 10 } , f ( x ) = x and g ( x ) =- x . sup f ( x ) = 10 and sup g ( x ) = 0 and sup [( f + g )( x )] = 0 and 0 10 + 0....
