Step 2 of 3

Let c be an upper bound of S such that
there is a rational number x in
Moreover, since

. Since the set of rational numbers is dense in

. Therefore, x is a rational number and

,

, so x is in S.

, c is not an upper bound of S as originally assumed.

Step 3 of 3
This contradiction implies that no number less than a is an upper bound of S. Thus,
