    Showing subspace is compact IFF any sequence of elements has a converging subsequece

    Show that a subspace X of the Euclidean space Rn is compact if and only if any
    sequence of elements of X has a converging subsequence. Remark: this statement
    holds in the considerably greater generality of any metric space but the proof of this
    more general result is quite involved.

    How do you define a combact subspace?
