Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone,

I'm reading Rudin's Analysis and in the topology section, he implies that the finite intersection of closed sets is not necessarily closed. (pg. 34)

Can someone give an example of this? I can't seem to find one.

Can you quote what you're reading directly? Because an arbitrary intersection of closed sets is always closed.

oops, you're right. I read it wrong.
