Connectedness of subsets of connected closures

  1. Feb 15, 2010 #1
    Can anyone help?

    Given a set E in Rn is connected and E is a subset of A and A is a subset of E closure, and E closure is also connected, prove that A is connected.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    not 100%, but could you try and show the union of E a limit point of E is connected?
