    Given a set of all real numbers containing 4s and 5s in their decimal
    representation. Determine the given set is countable or uncountable.
    Example : numbers in this set: 4.4455544, 455.55554444

    You don't need to prove this, but rather explain it to me why.

    I understand why from 0-1 is uncountable or from 1-2 etc using a proof by contradiction.
