Best answer

Here is a simple guideline for deciding whether a set is countable or not. As far as applied probability is concerned, this guideline should be sufficient for most cases.


  • $\mathbb{N}, \mathbb{Z}, \mathbb{Q}_{1}$ and any of their subsets are countable.
  • Any set containing an interval on the real line such as $[a, b],(a, b],[a, b)$, or $(a, b)$, where $a<b$ is uncountable.
