Solution: The interior of S is the set (0 , 3) (3 , 5), the set of limit points is [0 , 5], so the closure of S is [0 , 5]. 2. If A is open and B is closed, prove that A \ B is open. Solution: Let x A \ B . We want to show that > 0 so that B ( x ) A \ B . Since A is open, there exists an 1 so that B 1 ( x ) A . Now B is closed, so B c is open. Therefore, since x B c , there exists an 2 so that B 2 ( x ) B c . Then let = min { 1 , 2 } . Then B ( x ) = B 1 ( x ) B 2 ( x ) A B c = A \ B. 3. Let S be a bounded infinite set and let x = sup S . Prove that either x S or x is a limit point of S . Solution: Suppose x 6 S . Because x = sup S , > 0, x is not an upper bound of S , so there is some element s of S so that x < s < x . But that exactly says that > 0, B ( x ) S 6 = , which is the definition of a limit point., which is the definition of a limit point....
