Prove that if f : [a,b] ----> R is a bounded function that is continuous at all but finitely many points, then f is integrable over [a,b].

Proof.

Without loss of generality, we assume that f is continuous and bounded over the interval [a, b] except at point , we will prove that f is Riemann integrable over

[a, b].

We know that f is bounded by some number M over the interval [a, ...

###### Recent Feedback

- "Your solution, looks excellent. I recognize things from previous chapters. I have seen the standard deviation formula you used to get 5.154. I do understand the Central Limit Theorem needs the sample size (n) to be greater than 30, we have 100. I do understand the sample mean(s) of the population will follow a normal distribution, and that CLT states the sample mean of population is the population (mean), we have 143.74. But when and WHY do we use the standard deviation formula where you got 5.154. WHEN & Why use standard deviation of the sample mean. I don't understand, why don't we simply use the "100" I understand that standard deviation is the square root of variance. I do understand that the variance is the square of the differences of each sample data value minus the mean. But somehow, why not use 100, why use standard deviation of sample mean? Please help explain."
