Econ 204 Summer 2009 Problem Set 2 Solutions 1. Boundary, Exterior and Closure Find the boundary, exterior, and closure of the following sets: (a) ( x;y ) 2 R 2 j x 2 + y 2 > 1 ± (b) ( x;y ) 2 R 2 j x y = 3 ± Solution: (a) Boundary ( x;y ) 2 R 2 j x 2 + y 2 = 1 ± . Exterior ( x;y ) 2 R 2 j x 2 + y 2 < 1 ± . Closure ( x;y ) 2 R 2 j x 2 + y 2 ± 1 ± . (b) Boundary ( x;y ) 2 R 2 j x y = 3 ± . Exterior ( x;y ) 2 R 2 j x y 6 = 3 ± : Closure ( x;y ) 2 R 2 j x y = 3 ± . 2. Closed Set Show that E = x 2 R 1 : j x a 2 ± is a closed set where a is a real number. Solution: We prove that E c is open. Then E x 2 E c ; where E c = f x 2 R 1 : j x a j > 2 g : There are only two cases, x > a + 2 and x < a 2 . If x > a + 2 , then there exists " = x a 2 2 > 0 such that x " = x + a +2 2 > a + 2 and x + " > x > a + 2 . So B " ( x ) ³ E c . If x < a 2 , then there exists " = a 2 x 2 > 0 such that x + " = a 2+ x 2 < a 2 and x " < x < a 2 : So B " ( x ) ³ E c . Hence 8 x 2 E c , there exists " such that B " ( x ) ³ E c ) E c is open. So E is closed. 3. Intersection of Closed Sets Suppose f A k g is a sequence of non-empty closed sets on R n such that A 1 ´ A 2 ´ A 3 ::: ´ A k ´ ::: Show that if A m is bounded for some m , then \ 1 k =1 A k 6 = ? .
