Hi, here's my question: Let be continuous, and . Let . I claim then that does not converge uniformly on and that . Attempt at proof: So the first bit isn't bad; either it can be shown by contradiction (suppose converges uniformly, and get a contradiction), or by noting that if did converge uniformly, then , which is a discontinuous function (since ). This contradicts the fact that if a sequence of continuous functions converges uniformly, then their limit is continuous as well. As for the second bit, I'm having some trouble with the details. I want to do something like, for some : but not quite sure how to proceed. Thanks for any help!

The first integral (in your end expression) = f(0)(1?). The second integral is bounded by ?M, where M = max(f(x)) over the interval. Continuity implies M is finite. Let ? > 0 and get your result.
