Step 1

We need to show that help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosex [an, bn c R" is closed. [a1, b] x a rectangle R Note: A set A C R" is closed if and only if every convergent sequence in R" completely contained in A has its limit in A fullscreen
Step 2

Now, help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseLet {xn CR be a convergent sequence in R. Let us assume that x. So, by the above statement if we can show that x ER then we are done Now VE 0,3 No > 0 such that |2n - xl No Хn _ - (х,, хв xand x denotes the i-th co-ordinate. 2 (x1,x2, .., x") where ...., xn") and x = Let us denote xn i fullscreen
