Hi MathsisFun;

Explains it nicely. I can not improve on it.

Yep, another nice page.

It might be worth mentioning that an "outward facing" square bracket is sometimes used instead of a round one for open intervals.

eg. (0,1) = ]0,1[

() is my preferred notation though.

Why did the vector cross the road?

It wanted to be normal.
