2. Let (Sn) be a sequence of countable sets. Show that U Sn is countable.
3. Show that N₀ ≤ k for each infinite cardinal k.
4. A Hamel basis of a (possibly infinite dimensional) vector space (over an arbitrary field) is a linearly independent subset whose linear span is the whole space. Use Zorn's lemma to show that every non zero vector space has a Hamel basis.
5. Prove that |W| x |R| = C.
(Hint: First use the Contor-Bernstein Theorem to prove that |[0, 1)| = |[0, ∞)| = |R|.
Then show that |W| x |R| = |W x [0, 1)| = |[0, ∞).)
