    First, let's give the relevant definitions:
    x is in the interior int(X) of X if there's an open set U such that x is in U and U is contained in X.
    x is in the closure X' of X if for any neighborhood V of x, the intersection of V and X is not empty.

    Negate the statements above to get:
    x is in the _complement_ Y(int(X)) of int(X) if every open set ...

    Solution Summary

    This posting shows that the interior of the complement to a set is the complement to the closure of the set.
