The Fix Is In (Posted on 2006-11-17) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Prove: Let f be a nondecreasing, but not necessarily continuous, mapping of the closed interval [0,1] into itself. Then f has a fixed point, i.e., there is some x in [0,1] such that f(x)=x.

(Just to avoid any misunderstanding, [0,1] is the set of all real numbers between 0 and 1, with both 0 and 1 also included.)
