Problem 810 a.
Let us assume

For

or

.
Enough to consider the case
x

A

. Then
x =

A
2
. Or
x

A
n

which is open in
A
.
Hence there exists an open set
O
, such that
(1)
x

O

½
A
n

;
which means
O

\
A

=
Á:
Since
f

A

is continuous, there exists, for any open set
U
of
f
(

), an open set
O
2
in
A
such that
(2)

Then

For

we can ¯nd an open set

Together with (2), we have

Hence
