Hello, I'm here to ask you your help. I have to do an exercise, but I have difficulties to finish. Let a and b be two reals strictly positive such that a/b is irrational. First, I have demonstrated that G=aZ+bZ is dense and then I have demonstrated that if A is a dense set and F a finish set, then A\F is also a dense set. This is now that I freeze. Let N be a natural number. With the help of the last question, demonstrate that for all r>0, there exist two relatives number p and q such that: p>=N and ap+bq<= r We can use the set F={ap+pq, such that p<N and q<M} for a good choice of M. Deduce that the set {ap+bq, and p>=N} is dense in R. My research: I found M=(r+aN)/b And then I found that the F set is a finish set. But I don't know how to go further. Thanks for your help.

Should "finish" be "finite"?
