We prove the following theorem: Let E be an arbitrary Banach space, let G be an open set in the space \( \mathbb{R}\times E \) , and let f: GE be an arbitrary continuous mapping. Then, for an arbitrary point (t 0, x 0) ∈ G and an arbitrary number ε > 0, there exists a continuous mapping g: GE such that $$ \mathop{\sup}\limits_{{\left( {t,x} \right)\in G}}\left\| {g\left( {t,x} \right)-f\left( {t,x} \right)} \right\|\leqslant \varepsilon $$ and the Cauchy problem $$ \frac{dz(t) }{dt }=g\left( {t,z(t)} \right),\quad z\left( {{t_0}} \right)={x_0} $$ has more than one solution.
