Math 127C – Homework 1

Write complete solutions to each of the following problems. Submit your

answers in PDF format to Gradescope by Monday, June 29 at 11:59 PM.

1. Show that the 1-norm/taxicab norm on Rn , defined by k(x1 , . . . , xn )k1 =

|x1 | + . . . + |xn | for all (x1 , . . . , xn ) ∈ Rn , is a norm.

2. Let V be any nontrivial (V 6= {0}) vector space over R, and let k · k be

a norm on V . Show that for any positive real number r > 0 there exists

x ∈ V such that kxk = r.

3. Let (M, d) be a metric space, and let M be finite. Show that (M, d) is

complete.

4. Let {xn }∞

n=1 be a sequence in a metric space, and suppose the sequence

satisfies the following property: for every > 0, there exists N ≥ 1 and a

ball B of radius such that

n > N =⇒ xn ∈ B.

Show that {xn }∞

n=1 is a Cauchy sequence.

5. Show that

S for any family {Uα : α ∈ I} of open sets in a metric space, the

union α∈I Uα is open.

6. Show that if U and V are open sets in a metric space, then U ∩ V is open.

7. Show that a finite subset of a metric space is connected if and only if it

contains exactly one point.
