It's enough to show that the set A of all algebraic numbers is countable (if one allows the coefficients of a polynomial

to be rational, we can always clear denominators to obtain one with integer coefficients, by multiplying by

the common denominator).

Let P be the collection of all polynomials with integer coefficients;

and for each natural n, let P_n ...
