Adjective[edit]

denumerable (not comparable)

  1. (mathematics) Capable of being assigned numbers from the natural numbers. Especially applied to sets where finite sets and sets that have a one-to-one mapping to the natural numbers are called denumerable.
    The empty set is denumerable because it is finite; the rational numbers are, surprisingly, denumerable because every possible fraction can be assigned a number.
