Instead of just demanding us to show something, how about stating what your own efforts have been so far? –  Hagen von Eitzen Oct 22 '12 at 21:41

If $A$ is an uncountable set of real numbers then there exists $k\in\mathbb Z$ such that $A\cap[k,k+1]$ is infinite. Use the definition of compactness, and the fact $[k,k+1]$ is a closed and bounded interval.
