Let R denote the set of all reals.

1) Let S be a subset of R and let x be an element of R. Prove that one and only one of the following three conditions holds:

a) x is an element of the set of all interior points S (int S)

b) x is an element of int (R\S)

c) x is an element of the set of all boundary points S (bd S) = bd (R\S)

2) Let S be a bounded infinite set and let x = sup S. Prove: If x is NOT an element of S, then x is an element of S' (set of all accumulation points of S).

3) Prove: bd S = (cl S) intersection [cl (R\S)].

Thank you. Any help would be awesome.
