MATH 74 HOMEWORK 5 Due Friday March 6th at 3:10pm. Throughout, let X and Y be metric spaces. (1) Let { x n } n =0 be a Cauchy sequence, and suppose that a subsequence { x n i } i =0 converges. Show that the whole sequence { x n } must converge. (2) Show that x A if and only if inf a A d ( x,a ) = 0. First assume x A . Then x is a limit point of A and we’ve seen there is a sequence { a n } n =0 with a i A and lim n →∞ a n = x . Thus, for any ± > 0 there is an a n such that d ( x,a n ) < ± . This shows inf a A d ( x,a ) = 0 since if it were greater than zero, there would be some ± for which there is no a with d ( a,x ) < ± . Now assume inf d ( x,a ) = 0. Then for any ± > 0 there is an a A with d ( x,a ) < ± . So consider points a n gotten by choosing ± = 1 /n . This gives a sequence with lim n →∞ a n = x , so that x is a limit point of A . But then x A . (3) Show that if
