(b) True or false: d ( x,A ) = d ( x,a ) for some a ∈ A . What about if A is closed?. . . and if A is compact? (c) True or false: x ∈ cl A ⇐⇒ d ( x,A ) = 0. (d) Deﬁne the ±neighborhood of A in X to be the union U ( A,± ) = [ a ∈ A B ± ( a ) . Prove that U ( A,± ) = { x  d ( x,A ) < ± } . (e) Show that if A and B are disjoint closed subset of X and B is compact, then for some ± , the ±neighborhoods of A and B are disjoint. (f) Is this true if B is not compact? 1 7. Suppose that for some ± > 0, every ±ball in X has compact closure. Show that X is complete. 8. Suppose that for each x ∈ X there is an ± > 0 such that B ± ( x ) has compact closure. Show by means of an example that X need not be complete. 2...
