Unformatted text preview: 2, and thus, Z b a f dx L ( P,f ) m ( yx ) ( c/ 2)( yx ) > . This proves the contrapositive. 2. If f ( x ) = 0 for all irrational x , f ( x ) = 1 for all rational x , prove that f 6 R on [ a,b ] for any a < b . Fix any partition P . Since there is a rational between any two real numbers, U ( P,f ) = 1. On the other hand, since there is an irrational between any two real numbers, L ( P,f ) = 0. Since the partition was arbitrary, R b a f dx = 1 6 = 0 = R b a f dx. 1...
