It follows therefore from Theorem 4.1.4 that I J is an interval. (ii) False, take e.g. I = [0 , 1) and J = [1 , 2]. (iii) True. Let I = ( a 1 ,b 1 ) and J = ( a 2 ,b 2 ). Let a = min { a 1 ,a 2 } . Then a = inf( I J ), Similarly if b = max { b 1 ,b 2 } , then b = sup( I J ). If I J is an interval, it is equal to ( a,b ). Assume a = a 1 . If a 2 = a 1 , then obviously I J 6 = . If a 2 > b 1 , then I J = ( b 1 ,a 2 ) is nonempty. If a 2 b 1 , then a 2 ( a,b ) \ ( I J ), which is impossible. (iv) True. Let I = [ a 1 ,b 1 ] and J = [ a 2 ,b 2 ]. Let a = min { a 1 ,a 2 } . Then a = inf( I J ), Similarly if b = max { b 1 ,b 2 } , then b = sup( I J ). If I J is an interval, it is equal to [ a,b ]. Assume a = a 1 . If a 2 = a 1 , then obviously I J 6 =...
