## Homework Statement

Show that if F is continuous on [0,∞) and uniformaly continuous on [a,∞) for some positive constant , then f is uniformaly continuous on [0,∞).

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Let I:= [0,∞) and A:=[a,∞) where a ≠0 and I is contained in ℝ and A is contained in I. Also assume that F is continuous on I but uniformally continuous on A. Lastly, assume that F is not uniformally continuous on [0,∞). Since by assumption F is unif. Cont. on A, the complement of A in I is where the uniform continuity must fail. Since F is continuous on I, and I is an interval, then there exist c,d in I and a k in ℝ where f(c) < k < f(d). Then there exist a b in I between c and d where f(b) = k. Since c and d are arbitrary values in I, then any value between c and d can be found. Lastly since 0 is contained in the interval it too must be continuous at that point (by assumption). Therefore f is continuous at every point in I. Thus F is uniformaly continuous on [0,∞).

**My proofs are always long winded like this**

If at all possible, could somebody first, help me if i solved this problem wrong, and if i am right, show me a more concise way to write this problem up.
