I need to show that if every neighborhood of some [itex]x\in A[/itex] for some [itex]A\subseteq\mathbb{R}[/itex] contains infinitely many points of [itex]A[/itex], then [itex]x[/itex] is an accumulation point of [itex]A[/itex].(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So far, I have:

Let [itex]A\subseteq\mathbb{R}[/itex]. I want to show that if every neighborhood of [itex]x\in A[/itex] has infintely many points of A, there exists a [itex]y\in\mathbb{R}[/itex] such that [itex]y\in((x-\epsilon,x+\epsilon)\bigcap A[/itex]\{x}).

Am I on the right track?
