I think this is the def. I'm supposed to be using. A set E is compact iff, for every family {$\displaystyle G_alpha$} for some alpha in A of open sets such that EC alpha in A G_alpha, there is a finite set {alpha1,...,alphan} C A such that ECUi=1 to infinity G_(alphai).

Also, how would we show it if we use the sequential characterization of compactness?
