In 1891 Georg Cantor published his Diagonal Argument which, he asserted, proved that the real numbers cannot be put into a one-to-one correspondence with the natural numbers.In this paper we will see how by varying the initial conditions of the demonstration we can use Cantor’s method to produce a one-to-one correspondence between the set of natural numbers and the set of infinite binary decimals in the open interval \((0,1)\).
