(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); C(reals) = C(P(naturals))??

hello,

Could someone help me please.

I am studying Cantor's set theory at present, but am a little confused as to why he concludes that the cardinality of the set of real numbers is equal to the cardinal number of the power set of naturals (2^aleph0).

Thanks.
