In my textbook, it gives the following definition of a limit point:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"A point x is a limit point of a sequence x_1,x_2,... if every open interval containing x also contains points x_n for infinitely many n"

I am taking this to mean that every open interval containing x must also contain an infinite amount of other points from the sequence (though this doesn't necessarily mean that it containseverypoint of the sequence).

Is my understanding correct?
