the function

$f(x) = inf$ {$N(x-a) s.t. a∈E$}, $f :\mathbb{R}^{n}→\mathbb{R}$ is continuous and $f^{-1}(0)=E$.

(There are some hint:

$f^{-1}(0)=E$ will be implied by $E$ closed. $f :\mathbb{R}^{n}→\mathbb{R}$ is continuous implied by triangle inequality.

I still can't get the proof by the hint. So...thank you for your help!)
