# Question about Metric space

Let X be a metric space and x0 in X. Define a function f: X --> R (all real numbers) by f(x) = d(x,x0). Show that f is continuous.
HINT: Prove the variant of the triangle inequality which says
|d(x,z)-d(y,z)|< d(x,y) for any x,y,z in X

Solution Summary

"Thanks! Let me know if you want to help out for a derivation for the same problem but this time only for the integration version?"

"Thank you. Can I please trouble you to show all work for the first problem? (x + 3)(x − 5) < 0"

"Thank you!"
