# Pointwise limit problem

Let fk (x) = x^(1/k), k = 1, 2, 3, . . ..

a) Determine the pointwise limit f of the sequence {fk} infinity k=1 on the interval [0, 1].

b) Show that the sequence {fk} infinity k=1 does not converge to f uniformly to f on [0, 1].

c) Show that the sequence {fk} infinity k=1 converges to f uniformly to f on [sigma, 1], where 0 < sigma < 1.
