**Very important...**

Let

**R**denote the set of real numbers. Find all nondecreasing continuous

functions g :

**R**→

**R**such that

g(x+g(y))=g(g(x))+g(y) for all x,y∈

**R**

Hi vip89!

Hint: try differentiating with respect to x, and y, separately.

Oh, I see. That hint didn't seem to make much sense until I **did**!

(Funny how often that happens.)

Hi vip89!

It's

Actually no, I can't. But I do have some advice for you.

In this forum, you'll pretty much never get other people to solve entire problems for you. People like to see some attempt that you tried to solve it first. So far you haven't done that.

Did you try the suggestion from tiny-tim in message #6 ? If not, then try it. If you did try it then explain how far you got with it, or why you were unable to get very far with it, or just what you don't understand.

And lastly, welcome to physicsforums.com
