    Urysohn's lemma

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    A Hausdorff space is said to be completely regular if
    for each pt. x in X and closed set C with x not in C,
    there exists a continuous function f: X --> {0,1} s.t.
    f(x)=0 and f(C)={1}.

    Show that if a space is normal, it is completely regular.
    How do I use Urysohn's lemma along with Hausdorffiness to show this.

    Thank You
