## Statement

Suppose $X$ is a connected space and $f:X \to Y$ is a continuous map. Then, $f(X)$, endowed with the subspace topology from $Y$, is a connected space.

## Applications

• Intermediate-value theorem: This states that any continuous real-valued function on a connected space that takes the real values $a$ and $b$ with $a < b$, takes all real values in the interval $[a,b]$.

## Proof
