Homework Help: Continuous Function Proof

  1. Mar 6, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Prove that if f is continuous at a, then so is |f|

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know
    lim f = L
    x->a

    Not sure really where to go from here.

    to prove that f is continuous at a, you must prove that [tex]f(a)[/tex] is defined, that [tex]\lim_{x \to a} f(x)[/tex] exists and that [tex]\lim_{x \to a} f(x) = f(a)[/tex].
