Math 1432 Notes – Week 9 10.1 % THE LEAST UPPER BOUND AXIOM M is an upper bound for S if x M for all x ε S. The least upper bound of S is an upper bound that is less than or equal to any other upper bound for S. LEAST UPPER BOUND AXIOM Every nonempty set of real numbers that has an upper bound has a least upper bound. Examples: 1. {1,2,3,4} S = 2. [?4, 2] 3. ( ) ,8 −∞ 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
