Let (X,d) be a metric space. I have already shown that d'=d(x,y)/1+d(x,y) is also a metric on X. my question is: Show that a sequence x_n in X, n greater than or equal to 1, is a Cauchy sequence with respect to d if and only if it is a Cauchy sequence with respect to d'

Go ahead and write out what the definitions give you.. it shouldn't be too much more. Maybe I'll work through one direction, and you can do the other.. If a sequence is Cauchy, this tells you: Given , there exists such that for any , we have . Now, we consider the same sequence under the metric : . Now that wasn't too bad, was it? Can you do the other direction?

Are you any good with complete metric spaces
