Re: Set-Builder Notation

Hi MathsisFun;

Near the bottom:

But how would you list all the Real Numbers between 2 and 6 ?

Does between include the endpoints ? As you have written here:

maybe this is correct:

What do you think?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

Re: Set-Builder Notation

Hmmm ... I was extending the concept of {2, 3, 4, 5, 6} so I may just reword it.

Re: Set-Builder Notation

Hi Maths;

Maybe saying, between 2 and 6 inclusive, might clear any ambiguity. Just a thought.
