In a metric space, an you find an open ball with radius 4, contained in an open ball with radius 3, but ? Why?

Your question is confusing. How can you have a ball of radius 4 inside a ball of radius 3?

If A is an open ball with radius 4, then, given any , there exist points, p and q, in A such that . If , there is no ball of radius 3 containing both p and q.

let S={0,2,4} and let us use the usual distance. Then S is a metric space and B(2,3)=S B(0,4)={0,2} B(a,b) is the open ball with center a and radius b.
