You are given $\displaystyle {J_n} = \left[ {0,1-\frac{1}{{n + 1}}} \right)$

For examples:

$\displaystyle J_1\cup J_2\cup J_3=\left[ {0,\frac{1}{{2}}} \right)\cup\left[ {0,\frac{2}{{3}}} \right)\cup\left[ {0,\frac{3}{{4}}} \right)=\left[ {0,\frac{3}{{4}}} \right)$

$\displaystyle J_1\cap J_2\cap J_3=\left[ {0,\frac{1}{{2}}} \right)\cap\left[ {0,\frac{2}{{3}}} \right)\cap\left[ {0,\frac{3}{{4}}} \right)=\left[ {0,\frac{1}{{2}}} \right)$

Now can you find $\displaystyle \bigcup\limits_{n = 1}^\infty {{J_n}} \,\& \,\bigcap\limits_{n = 1}^\infty {{J_n}}~? $ - Sep 11th 2013, 03:58 PMHallsofIvyRe: Can somebody point me in the right direction
For the first one, which is the easiest, J1= (0, 1/1)= (0, 1) while I1= (0, 1- 1/2)= (0, 1/2). The "Difference", J1\I1= (1/2, 1). For n= 2, J2 (0, 1/2) while I2= (0, 1- 1/3)= (0, 2/3) so J2\I2 is empty.
