There exists one number N

Quote Quote by arbol View Post
The set N of natural numbers = {1, 2, 3, 4, ...}.

But there exists one (1) number N, such that

N = 12345678910111213... (where the unit's place is at infinity).
No, there is no such number. All integers have only a finite number of digits. By the way, it is not at all a good idea by using "N" to represent the set of natural numbers and then say that "N" is a number.

A good example of an irrational number then would be

1.234567891011121314...
Now THAT is a perfectly good irrataional number.
