 Aug 23 comment Checking Uniform Convergence But it will only let me accept my own answer in 2 days as I have just found out, so if someone posts an answer before then I'll accept it.

Changed Z, Q, C Aug 21 suggested approved edit on What do finite, infinite, countable, not countable, countably infinite mean? Aug 21 comment What do finite, infinite, countable, not countable, countably infinite mean? If you do not know what $\mathbb{ Z, Q, R, C}$ are, then you need to build up some baseline knowledge before proving there are "more" real numbers than integers. Qiaochu is right in that Wikipedia will serve you best for now.

I know that I cannot simply say "let $c_n$ be such that $U - 1/n \le f(c_n) \le U$" but I am unsure how else to go about constructing such a $c_n$.
