Hi I'm having trouble understanding dedekind cut.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose ScQ is a Dedekind cut.

i) One might try to define the negative of S as a set

-S={-s in Q : s in S}

Explain why this is not a Dedekind cut.

I have no idea how Dedekind cuts work even after reading over the defn of it 3 or 4 times. Any tips would be great
