2 !!! WRITE YOUR NAME, STUDENT ID AND LECTURE N. BELOW !!! NAME : ID : LECTURE N. 1. Prove that the number 3 12 is irrational. Solution. By contradiction, assume 3 12 = r/s , where r, s are coprime natural numbers. We get 12 s 3 = r 3 . Then 2 divides r, so that r = 2 r 1 . We get 2 2 · 3 s 3 = 2 3 r 3 1 . We get 3 s 3 = 2 r 3 1 , so that 2 divides s. This contradicts r, s coprime.
3 2. In each case provide an example or state that it is not possible to do so and explain why. 2a Give one example of a countable set that is not ﬁnite. 2b Give one example of a countable set that is not denumerable.
