Show that every uncountable set of real numbers has a point of accumulation.

• Okay. I've shown that. Oh, you wanted me to post an answer too? – Asaf Karagila Oct 22 '12 at 20:49

• 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.
• It seems that it is also true that if $A$ is an uncountable set of real numbers then $A\cap A'$ is nonempty. Is it true? How could I prove it? – JKEG Feb 22 '16 at 23:10
• @Asaf Karagila sir . Can you prove how this is coming If $A$ is an uncountable set of real numbers then there exists $k∈Z$ such that $A∩[k,k+1$] is infinite. ' – Unknown x Aug 7 '17 at 2:50
