    I'm wondering if someone could help me with part (c), I'm not sure how to start it at all. Also I would be thankful if someone could also quickly verify my solutions to (a) and (b), especially (a) as I just assumed the ds changes to dx at the end but I don't know if this is correct..?

    The given result doesn't seem to be true.

    Take N=1, v0 = 1, v1=0. Then the 2nd sum in the rhs product is zero, the LHS isn't.

    This isn't just nitpicking; I think it's clear the difficulty in proving this is what happens at 0 and N in the RHS sums.

    You're meant to assume v_0 = 0.

    Anyway, bound the |v_k + v_{k-1}| term by |v_k| + |v_{k-1}|. This is where the two will come from.

    This is what I ended up getting but I'm still not sure where the 2 comes from? I assumed the 2 would just be in the continuous case as in part (a), not the discrete.

    Oops, thanks!

    If you write out the sum \sum_{k=1}^N |v_k| + |v_{k-1}| for small N, you'll see you end up with a lot of repeated terms. This is where the 2 is going to come from. There's still a little fiddling you'll need to do to deal with the end conditions.
