Rudin-RCA p.15

Let $X$ be a measurable space. Let $\{f_n\}$ be a sequence of extended-real measurable functions on $X$.

How do i prove that $\sup_n f_n$ is measurable?

Rudin uses a criterion to prove this, that is, if for every real $\alpha$, $f((\alpha,\infty])$ is measurable, then $f$ is measurable.

I don't understand why this is sufficient to prove this.. Help me

You can answer your own question and even accept your own answer so the question doesn't go unanswered in the system. – Clayton Jan 9 '13 at 1:18
