(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If a<c<d<b and f is integrable on (a,b), show that f is integrable on (c,d)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that f is integrable on (a,b) iff for all e>0 there exists step functions g and h such that g [tex]\leq[/tex] f1_{(a,b)}[tex]\leq[/tex] h and I(g-h) <e

( 1_{(a,b)}in the indicator function and I(g-h) is the integral of the step functions)

I feel like this should allow me to fairly easily show that f is also integrable on (c,d) but I just don't know how to start.

Do I need to consider partitions?

Thanks.
