Supremum Property of Real Number

Let S = [0,1]. If x and y are in s with x ≠y. How can we show that there are m,n∈N such that x< m/2^n <y. Can the Archimedean Property be used to prove this? If yes, could anyone provide me an insight to do this?

Re: Supremum Property of Real Number

Have you seen the proof of the fact that there is a rational number between any two reals?
