Exercise 7.1 Solution: (a) Note that\[\sqrt{x+3}-\sqrt{c+3}=\frac{(x+3)-(c+3)}{\sqrt{x+3}+\sqrt{c+3}}=\frac{x-c}{\sqrt{x+3}+\sqrt{c+3}}.\]We have\begin{align*}f'(c)&=\lim_{x\to c}\frac{f(x)-f(c)}{x-c}\\ &=\lim_{x\to c}\frac{\sqrt{x+3}-\sqrt{c+3}}{x-c}\\ &=\lim_{x\to c}\frac{\sqrt{x+3}-\sqrt{c+3}}{x-c}\\&=\lim_{x\to c}\frac{1}{x-c}\frac{x-c}{\sqrt{x+3}+\sqrt{c+3}} \\ &=\lim_{x\to c}\frac{1}{\sqrt{x+3}+\sqrt{c+3}}\\&=\frac{1}{2\sqrt{c+3}}. \end{align*}(b) Note that\[\frac{1}{x}-\frac{1}{c}=\frac{c-x}{xc}.\]We have\begin{align*}g'(c)&=\lim_{x\to c}\frac{g(x)-g(c)}{x-c}\\ &=\lim_{x\to c}\frac{\frac{1}{x}-\frac{1}{c}}{x-c}\\ &= \lim_{x\to c}\frac{\frac{c-x}{xc}}{x-c}\\ &=\lim_{x\to c}\frac{-1}{xc}=-\frac{1}{c^2}.\end{align*}(c) Note that…

Exercise 6.5 Solution: If $a=0$, for any $\e >0$ and any $x_0\in\ R$, and any $\delta >0$, we have\[|f(x)-f(x_0)|=|b-b|=0 < \e\] for all $|x-x_0|<\delta$. Hence $f$ is continuous at $x_0$.…

Exercise 5.1 Solution: (a) Closed. As it has no limit points, $\mathbb Z$ is closed. Clearly, it is not open. $\mathbb Z$ is not compact since $\mathbb Z$ is not…

Exercise 4.1 Solution: (1) Converges conditionally. It is convergent by Alternating Series Test. But $\sum_{k=1}^\infty\dfrac{1}{\sqrt{k}}$ is divergent by Proposition 4.16. (2) Converges absolutely. By Geometric Series Test and the fact…
