1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider the Dirichelet's function defined on (0,1) by f(x)= 0 is x is irrational and f(x)= 1/q if x=p/q where p and q are positive integers with no common factors. Show that lim f(x) for any x in (0,1) is 0 3. The attempt at a solution Here is the first line of the proof the professor gave us. "Let eps>0 and n so large that (1/n)<=eps, where n is a natural number. The only numbers x for which f(x) can > eps are 1/2, 1/3, 2/3, ..., 1/n, ...(n-1)/n. " I don't understand how the any p/q with n as q can be greater than epsilon is n is chosen so large that 1/n <=eps.
