Hi - I've got the following question but can't find any concrete information in my books on how to answer it and I'm slightly confused:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

{x ε R : 2≤x≤3 } and {x ε R : 2≤x≤5 } Do they have the same cardinality?

My understanding of this is if you can find a mapping that satisifies a bijection then yes they do - but because the second set starts at 2 and not 4 I can't create this map and hence the second set will always be bigger. However they are both infinite so so do they share the cardinality ℂ?

Any ideas?
