Riemann integration

Homework Statement

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

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 $$\leq$$ f1(a,b) $$\leq$$ 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.

I assume you mean $I(h-g)$, not $I(g-h)$.
To show integrability on the interval $(c,d)$, consider the functions $g|_{(c,d)}$ and $h|_{(c,d)}$, which are the restrictions of $g$ and $h$ to the interval $(c,d)$. Are the restrictions still step functions? Do they satisfy the desired inequality?
