Why does cantors theorem not prove the interval (0,1) in Q uncountable?

  • #1
This is a 'just for fun' question at the end of my online lecture notes..
My brain is fried from studying for exams, I can't figure it out and it is driving me mad!
Anyone care to help me out?

Not every number which can be constructed through Cantor's procedure is rational; so, you would need to show that you can always construct a rational number which is not on the list.
