# Metric Space Proofs

Not what you're looking for?

Problem 1: Given the metric space (X, p), prove that

a) |p(x, z) - p(y, u)| < p(x, y) + p(z, u) (x, y, z, u is an element of X);

b) |p(x, y) - p(y, z)| < p(x, y) (x, y, z is an element of X).

These problems are from Metric Space. Please give formal proofs for both (a) and (b) based on the reference provided. Thank you.
