# math: real numbers

The statement below is false. Correct it by changing two symbols.

"The interval (a,b) contains its infimum and its supremum."

I'll give you a hint.
The interval (a, b) is an open interval. What you need is a closed interval.
Parentheses are used for open intervals.
What symbol is used for closed intervals?

I hope this will help.
