Hey guys, I'm in a little bit of a jam here:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I managed to miss a really important lecture on continuity the other day, and there were a few examples that the professor provided to the class that I just got, but would love it if someone could explain them to me.

First,f(x)=xis continuous on all of^{3}R. Everyone went through this, but I'm not really sure how it works.

Second, we used the fact that "a function [tex]f:A \rightarrow[/tex]Rfails to be uniformly continuous on A if and only if there exists a particular [tex]\epsilon_{0} > 0[/tex] and two sequences (x_{n}) and (y_{n}) in A satisfying

[tex]\left| x_n - y_n\right| \rightarrow 0 [/tex] but [tex]\left| f(x_n) - f(y_n)\right| \rightarrow \epsilon_0 [/tex]

to showfis not uniformly continuous onR.

Thirdly, we showed thatfis uniformly continuous on any bounded subset ofR
