# The set of all finite subsets of $mathbb{R}_+$ is countable.

Mathematics Asked by simey on September 19, 2020

I’m struggling to figure out how to prove that the set of all finite subsets of $$mathbb{R}_+$$ is countable. I thought that it wasn’t but a TA told me it was and I need to prove why it’s countable. I don’t even know how to start this proof.
If it helps, I solved this problem with $$mathbb{Z}_+$$ by saying when writing down first several subsets of $$mathbb{Z}_+$$, you can clearly see a pattern that can be enumerated.

It is false. That set contains all the singletons from $$R^+$$ which is itself uncountable. So the set must be uncountable. Also, if $$R^+$$ is replaced by $$Z^+$$ it is still false as the power set of $$Z^+$$ is still uncountable !
