1,Find the cardinality of the set of all irrational numbers, and prove your answer is correct.

Solution: The cardinality of set of irrational numbers is infinity. The set of irrational numbers is defined as:

.

Since there are infinite such x which cannot be written in terms of p and q, the cardinality becomes infinite.

New Notation: The set of irrational numbers has cardinality = C ("the infinity of the continuum").

2a, Is there a line in the x-y plane such that both coordinates of ...
