    Let (X,d) be a metric space with x in X and A as a nonempty subset of X. The distance between x and A is defined as:
    dist(x,A) = inf{d(x, a) : a in A}

    i > 0

    A_i = {x in X : dist(x,A) <= i}

    Show that A_i is closed

    C is a collection of all compact subsets of X.
    C is nonempty
    p : C Ã? C -> [0,infinity)
    p(A,B) = inf{i > 0 : B subset of A_i and A subset of B_i}

    Show that p is a metric on C when C is nonempty
