N or N collection of positive integer (does not include 0): 1, 2, … Intervals Let a,b R (a,b) = {x R : a < x < b} bounded open interval [a,b] = {x R : a ≤ x ≤ b} bounded closed interval [a,b) = {x R : a ≤ x < b} bounded half-open interval (a,b] = {x R : a < x ≤ b} bounded half-open interval (a,∞) = {x R : x > a} unbounded open interval (-∞,b) = {x R : x < b}
