Prove that the set of irrational numbers in [0,1] is not countable

## Answers (1) 2021-02-26
It is known that the set of rational numbers are countable.
Union of rational numbers and irrational numbers gives the real numbers.
So $$\displaystyle{\left[{0},{1}\right]}={Q}{\left[{0},{1}\right]}\cup{R}{Q}{\left[{0},{1}\right]}$$
Since Q[0,1] is countable and [0,1] is not countable.
So the only possibility is that $$\displaystyle{R}{Q}{\left[{0},{1}\right]}$$ is uncountable.
Hence, the set of irrational numbers in [0,1] is not countable.

The rational numbers are dense in $$\displaystyle\mathbb{R}$$. This means that between any two real numbers a and b with a < b, there exists a rational number q such that a < q < b. Using this fact, establish that the irrational numbers are dense in $$\displaystyle\mathbb{R}$$ as well. asked 2021-02-13
