examples of covers
1) Show that each subset of R is not compact by describing an open cover for it that has no finite subcover.
a) [1,3)
b) N
c) {x is and element of Q: 0 <= x <= 2}
2)
If S1 and S2 are compact subsets of R, prove that S1 U S2 is compact
3) Find an uncountable open cover F of R such that F has no finite subcover. Does F contain a countable subcover?
Here is what I have for problem one,let me know what you think.
1)
For (a) On = (.9, 3  (1/n))
For (b) On = (n  (1/4), n + 1/4)
not sure on the rest

When I say cover F, I mean script F
