It follows from the definition of the subspace topology that the open sets of X × y 0 are of the form U × y 0 where U is open in X . Since f ( U ) = U × y 0 , it is immediate that both f and f - 1 are continuous. ± Exercise 5 from Section 18, page 111 The map f : [0 , 1] [ a , b ] given by f ( x ) = a + ( b - a ) x is clearly a homeomorphism that restricts to a homeomorphism from (0 , 1) to ( a , b ). ± Exercise 6 from Section 18, page 111 Define f : R R by f ( x ) = 0 if x is rational and f ( x ) = x otherwise. We will show that f is continuous only at 0 by using the sequence criterion for continuity. If { a i } is any sequence that converges to 0, then { f ( a i ) } is obtained from { a i } by replacing the rational a i ’s by 0, so it also converges to 0. Hence
