I am trying to prove the following proposition:

Let F be a closed subset of the Euclidean space Rn.Then the quotient space Rn/F is first countable if and only if the boundary of F is bounded in Rn.

Any ideas?

"if and only if", so that's

which one can you do?

(start by setting out the definitions)

you say that one side follows directly from the definitions?

no, I'm saying that you haven't shown any work, you haven't used the homework template, and

try now

hedipaldi said:i used the definition of the quotient topology,considered a countable

basis at F in the quotient space and it's inverse open sets in Rn

under the natural map.I fail to see the point here and need someolution
