By the choice of δ and because g ∈ E , | x - y | < δ , | g ( x ) - g ( y ) | < ² 2 , thus g ( x ) < g ( y ) + ² 2 . By the definition of f ( y ) as a sup, g ( y ) f ( y ) . Putting it all together, we get f ( x ) < g ( x ) + ² 2 < g ( y ) + ² 2 + ² 2 f ( y ) + ² 2 + ² 2 = f ( y ) + ² ; that is f ( x ) - f ( y ) < ² . Changing the roles of x and y , we similarly get that f ( y ) - f ( x ) < ² , thus proving that | f ( x ) - f ( y ) | < ² if | x - y | < δ . Continuity follows. 4

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
