## Homework Statement

This problem is insanely intuitive.

Define [tex] f : (0,1) \rightarrow \Re [/tex] by

[tex]f(x)=\begin{cases}

1/q&\text{if } x \neq 0 \text{, is rational, and }x = p/q \text{in lowest terms}\\

0&\text{otherwise }\end{cases} [/tex]

Suppose [tex]\epsilon > 0[/tex]. Prove that there are at most a finite number of elements [tex]y\in(0,1)[/tex] such that [tex]f(y)\geq\epsilon[/tex]

## Homework Equations

Must be a rigorous proof. Thats about it.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have no Idea where to START in solving this. All that I know is over (0,1), f(y) is always going to be 1/q, and therefore y must be rational in the form p/q. Otherwise, I have nothing on this one.
