a way of writing the set of all real numbers between two endpoints. the symbols [ and ] are used to include an endpoint in an interval, and the symbols ( and ) are used to exclude an endpoint from an interval
denoted by [a,b] which contains all real numbers and a≤x≤b
denoted by (a,b) which contains all real numbers x and a<x<b
half open half closed intervals
are (a,b] consists of all real numbers x were a<x≤b, & [a,b) consists of all real numbers x were a≤x<b
denoted by a
denoted by b
infinity not a real number but a symbol that represents unboundedness in a positive direction; not included in endpoints since not a real number
negative infinity not a real number but a symbol that represents unboundedness in a negative direction; not included in endpoints since not a real number
consists of all real numbers x for which x≥a
consists of all real numbers x for which x>a
consists of all real numbers x for which x≤a
consists of all real numbers x for which x<a
consists of all real numbers x
any number squared is never a negative integer
correspondence between two sets
x corresponds to y or y dends on x
