## Homework Statement

Let [itex]f_{n}(x)=\frac{x}{1+x^n}[/itex] for [itex]x \in [0,∞)[/itex] and [itex]n \in N[/itex]. Find the pointwise limit f of this sequence on the given interval and show that [itex](f_{n})[/itex] does not uniformly converge to f on the given interval.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found that the pointwise limit f is :

[itex]0[/itex] if [itex]x=0[/itex]

[itex]x[/itex] if [itex]0<x<1[/itex]

[itex]1/2[/itex] if [itex]x=1[/itex]

[itex]0[/itex] if [itex]x>1[/itex]

But I'm stuck on proving that it's not uniformly convergent. I know that for any natural number N, I need to find some x such that [itex]|f_{n}(x) - f(x)| ≥ ε[/itex], but I'm not sure how to go about this.
