1/4 in the cantor set

  1. Sep 24, 2010 #1
    Can anyone show me a proof of 1/4 being in the cantor set?? My prof said it is, I read it is, i saw no proof though. Not in my text anyway, also couldnt find it on google.

    Write 1/4 in ternary.

    ...and already know how to characterize the Cantor set in terms of ternary expansions...
