Then f 1 ( p 1 ( U )) = ( pf ) 1 ( U ) = id 1 Y ( U ) = U is open because f is continuous. Thus p : X โ Y is a quotient map. (b) . The map r : X โ A is a quotient map by (a) because it has the inclusion map A , โ X as right inverse. Ex. 22.3. Let g : R โ A be the continuous map f ( x ) = x ร 0. Then q โฆ g is a quotient map, even a homeomorphism. If the compostion of two maps is quotient, then the last map is quotient; see [1]. Thus q is quotient. The map q is not closed for { x ร 1 x  x > } is closed but q ( A โฉ { x ร 1 x  x > } = (0 , โ ) is not closed. The map q is not open for R ร ( 1 , โ ) is open but q ( A โฉ ( R ร ( 1 , โ ))) = [0 , โ ) is not open. Ex. 22.5. Let U โ A be open in A . Since A is open, U is open in X . Since p is open, p ( U ) = q ( U ) โ p ( A ) is open in Y and also in p ( A ) because p ( A ) is open [Lma 16.2]....
