(b) f ( x ) = x 2 on [0 , 3] Proof. Let a [0 , 3]. Let R . Assume > 0. Choose = min { 1 , 7 } . Then > 0. Let x , y [0 , 3]. Assume  x y  < . Since  x y  < 1, we have x 1 y x + 1, and hence 0 x + y x + ( x + 1) 3 + 3 + 1 = 7. I.e.  x + y  < 7. Also  x y  < 7 . So...  f ( x ) f ( y )  =  x 2 y 2  =  x + y   x y  < 7 7 = Thus f is uniformly continuous on [0 , 3]. 19.6 (a) Let f ( x ) = x for x 0. Show that f is unbounded on (0 , 1] but that f is nevertheless uniformly continuous on (0 , 1]. Compare with Theorem 19.6. Proof. f ( x ) = 1 2 x , which is unbounded on (0 , 1]. [For proof... Let M R . Choose x = 1 4(  M  + 1)) 2 . Then x (0 , 1], and f ( x ) = 1 2 q 1 4(  M  + 1) 2 =  M  + 1 > M . So ( M R )( x (0 , 1])( f ( x ) > M ), and f is unbounded above in (0 , 1].] Nevertheless,...
