Proof
1. z = z + 0 ( Exi st ence of zero el ement )
= z + ( a + ( - a) ) = ( z + a) + ( - a)
= a + ( - a) = 0.
2. I f u and b 0 are el ement s i n and u b = b
To Show t hat - u = 1
Consi der u = u 1 ( Exi st ence of uni t )
= u ( b

= ( u b)

## ( usi ng associ at i on of mul t i pl i cat i on

= b

( u b= bi s guven)
u = b

= 1
u = 1
3. I f a , t hen a 0 = 0
a + a 0 = a 1 + a 0 ( Exi st ence of uni t )
= a ( 1 + 0) = a 1 ( Di st ri but i vi t y)
= a ( Exi st ence of uni t )
a 0 = 0 ( By ( a) )

Theorem
1. I f 0 a are such t hat a b = 1 b =

2. I f a b = 0 t hen ei t her a = 0 or b = 0

Proof Let i f possi bl e r at i onal number
r =

( q 0, p, q ) :
(

Not e - wi t hout t he l oss of gener al i t y we can assume t hat
t here i s no common Fact or b/w p and q, and p and q bot h are

p

( p i s odd p = 2n- 1 , n
Then p

Al so p and q do not have 2 as a common f act or
q i s odd . . ( 1)
Now as p i s even p = 2m
Where m :

From ( 1) and ( 2) we have a cont r adi ct i on.

To Show t hat - a > c i . e a c P
As a b P and b c P

Proof - Gi ven - a > b a - b P
Now ( a + c) - ( b + c) = a + c - b - c

So assume a 0 , b 0 .

Now | ab| = ab = ( - a) ( - b) = | a|

Consi der | xn - x | = | ( | xn - x | ) ( | xn + x | ) /
( xn + x )
| xn - x | = 1/( xn + x) | xn - x| . ( 1)
Now xn + x > x 1/( xn + x) 1/x( 2)

MODULUS THEOREM
Let l i m xn =x t hen l i m | xn | = | x|

Proof : Let >0 be gi ven ( t o f i nd m : | | xn | - | x| | < nm
As l i m xn =x

m : | xn - x| < nm( 1)
Now | | xn | | x| | | xn - x| < nm ( by ( 1) )
| | xn | | x| | < nm l i m | xn | = | x|

Lemma: ( conver gent cauchy)
I f X=( xn ) i s convergent seq of real s t hen X i s a cauchy
sequence
Proof : Let l i m xn =x
Let >0 ( t o f i nd H( ) : | xn xm| < n, m H( ) )
As l i m xn = x f or

> 0 H( ) :
| xn - xm| <

nH( ) . ( 1)
Now | xn - xm| = | ( xn x) ( xm x) |
| xn - xm| | xn x| + | xm x| . . ( 2)
Now by ( 1) f or n, mH( )
| xn x| <

Use t hi s i n ( 2) we get ,
| xn xm| < n, mH( )

Lemma: ( Cauchy bounded)
A cauchy sequence i s bounded

Proof : Let X = ( xn ) be Cauchy seq
f or = 1 H:
| xn - xm| < 1 n, m H
For m=H, | xn xH | <1 nH( 1)
Now | xn | = | xn xH + xH|
| xn xH | + | xH|

| xn | < 1+ | xH| nH . ( 2)
Let M=max{ | x1 | , | x2 | . | xH- 1 | , | xH| +1}
Then | xn | M n ( xn ) i s bounded
