Question about the intervals (b,b) and [b,b]

  1. Nov 11, 2009 #1
    Let b be a real number. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that:

    (1) The interval (b,b) is empty, as are the intervals (b,b] and [b,b).
    (2) The interval [b,b] consists of a single point (namely, b).

    These statements look correct to me.
