Assume that f is a continuous, real-valued function defined on a metric space X. If {xn} is a sequence in X converging to x, prove that Limn→∞f(xn) = f(x).

Here is my attempt, but I am not sure if it is correct.

Anu proof will have to use the definition. Where did you pick an epsilon greater than 0? It is weird to pick ##n##. I suggest you follow the proof strategy suggested by @Svein, and after you are done with the proof, convince yourself that the same proof also applies where the codomain is an arbitrary metric space (i.e. change the absolute values with a distance function and look careful that you never used something else)

Here is my new solution, but I'm not sure if the graph I put is of any use, but if you can, please put up a similar graph to the one I put to help better understand.

Why ##\exists n_0: |f(x_n)-f(x)| < \epsilon \forall n \geq n_0##? That shouldn't be included in your proof at the beginning,
