MATH4300. General Topology. Problem set 1. 1. (Intermediate Value Theorem) Letp(x) be a polynomial with integer co-efficients of odd degree. Show that the equationp(x) = 0 has at least onereal solution.2. ( -δContinuity) Recall that a subsetURis anopen subsetif for everyxUthere is an open interval (a, b) such thatx(a, b) and (a, b)U.Letf:RRbe a function.Prove that the following statements areequivalent.For every open setVofR, the pre-imagef-1(V) is an open subsetofR.For everyx0Rand for every open setVcontainingf(x0), there isan open setUcontainingx0such thatf(U)V.For everyx0Rand for every>0, there isδ >0 such that if|x-x0|< δthen|f(x)-f(x0)|<.3.
