Suppose (S, d) is a metric space. A subset A c S is open if and only if its complement is closed. Proof Let B be the complement of A. Suppose B is closed, and suppose x E A. Then x is not a limit point of B, so for some r > 0 we have Br(x) n B = 0. Thus Br(x) c A, and A is a neighborhood of x. Conversely, suppose A is open and suppose x ¢ B. Then x E A, so for some r > 0 we have Br(x) c A. Then Br(x) n B = 0, and x is not a limit point of B. It follows that every limit point of B is in B. 0 The set of limit points of a subset A c S is called the closure of A; we shall denote it by A - .

Now consider the neighborhood N(x). This contains an interval (x - e, X + e). If we choose m so large that bm - am < e, then since am ~ x ~ bm this implies [am, bm] c N(x). But this means that [am, bm] is nice. This contradiction proves the theorem for the case n = 1. The same method of proof works in IRn, where instead of intervals we use squares, cubes, or their higher dimensional analogues. For example, when n = 2 we choose M so large that A is contained in the square with corners ( ±M, ±M).
