I'd appreciate it if someone could lead me through the steps for this problem:

Let $f$ be defined and bounded on $[a,b]$. Define a function $g$ on $[a,b]$ by the formula $\overline{I}(\chi_{[a,x]} f)$.

  • Prove $g$ is continuous on $[a,b]$.
  • Suppose $f$ is continuous at $x_0$. Prove that $g'(x_0) = f(x_0)$.
  • Extend to lower integrals.

(In other words $g(x)$ is the upper integral of $f$ on $[a,x]$)
