    1. Suppose f: [a,b]  is a function such that f(x)=0 for every x (a,b].
    a) Let &#61541; > 0. Choose n &#61646; &#61518; such that a + 1/n < b and |f(a)|/n <&#61541;.
    Let P ={a, a+1/n, b} &#61646; &#61520;([a,b]). Compute &#61525;(f,P) - &#61516;(f,P) and show that is less than &#61541;.

    b) Prove that a&#61682; b f = 0.
