# Are there infinitely many numbers in the interval [0,1]?

This is part of a series on common misconceptions.

True or False?There are infinitely many numbers in the interval $[0, 1].$

**Why some people say it's true:** Every new combination of digits after "0." leads to a new number between 0 and 1. Since there are infinitely many possible combinations, there are infinitely many numbers in $[0, 1]$.

**Why some people say it's false:** Since the length of the interval is finite, there can't possibly be infinitely many numbers in $[0, 1]$.

The statement is $\color{#20A900}{\textbf{true}}$.

Proof:The fraction $\frac{ 1 } { n }$ will always be in the interval $[0, 1 ]$ for all positive integers $n$. Since there are infinitely many positive integers, there are infinitely many numbers in the given interval. $_\square$
