Apparently, an equivalent definition is this: "For every [tex]\epsilon > 0[/tex] there exists a closed set [tex]F \subseteq E[/tex] such that [tex]m_*(E\setminus F) < \epsilon[/tex]."

Showing the equivalence of these definitions was a practice problem recently for the final exam in my real analysis class. But I couldn't get it, and even though I'm on break now, it's bugging me. Can someone help? Thanks! (This is also apparently a problem in Stein-Shakarchi's textbook,

*Real Analysis*.)
