Problem 38E

Show that the set of functions from the positive integers to the set {0. 1. 2, 3, 4. 5. 6. 7. 8, 9} is uncountable. [Hint: First set up a one-to-one correspondence between the set of real numbers between 0 and 1 and a subset of these functions. Do this by associating to the real number 0.   the function f with f(n) = dn.]
