    A closed set can have lots of equivalent definitions. This problem is one definition of a closed set. Now I use the other two equivalent definition of closed set to prove this problem.
    1. The complement of a closed set is an open set.
    2. Each point outside of a closed set has a disjoint neighborhood from this closed ...

    Solution Summary

    This provides an example of proving a set is closed.
