This extended set denoted by R is called the set of real numbers. We have already used the term Euclidean line without any explanation. We use the letter R (or R1 ) to denote an ordinary geometric straight line whose points have been identified with the set R of real numbers. We use the same letter R to denote the real line and the set of real numbers and say that a real number corresponds to a unique point on the line and conversely.

There is a question arising naturally: does there exist any transfinite cardinal number greater than c? The answer is affirmative. The following theorem prescribes a definite method for obtaining a set, whose cardinal number is greater than the cardinal number of the given set. 7 If A is a non-empty set and P(A) is its power set, then |A| < |P(A)|. Proof The map f : A → P(A) defined by f (a) = {a}, for all a ∈ A is injective. Hence, |A| ≤ |P(A)|. But there is no bijection g : A → P(A) (see Ex. 8 of SE-I).

But y determines a real number ∈ X. This contradicts that every real number r ∈ X occurs in the sequence {x1 , x2 , . . , xn , . }. Consequently, X must be non-countable.
