Find all the values of x for which the series X k =1 x k k converges. 3. Suppose that f : ( a,b ) R is differentiable on ( a,b ) and f ( x ) is bounded on ( a,b ). Prove that f is uniformly continuous on ( a,b ). 4. Let f be a continuous function mapping the interval [ a,b ] into the interval [ a,b ] (in other words, f : [ a,b ] [ a,b ]). Show that there is a point z in [ a,b ] such that f ( z ) = z (that is, show that f has a fixed point). 5. Give an example of a divergent series k =1 a k whose partial sums are bounded. 1 2 Solutions 1. Since sin( x ) is bounded by 1, we have  x sin(1 /x )   x  0 as x , which shows that f ( x ) is continuous at 0. Now lim x f ( x ) f (0) x = lim x sin(1 /x ) does not exist; we can show that by letting a k = 2 k and observing that sin(1 /a k ) = sin( 2 k ) = ( for even k...
