I have an assignment question(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

" let (X,d) be a metric space. a is element of X. Define a function f maps X -> R by f(x) = d(a,x). show f is continuous."

I'm not sure what this function looks like. Is f(x) = sqrt(a^2+x^2) and if it is I need abs(x-a) < delta?? I'm confused.
