    Think this will help: "Dedekind cut, in mathematics, concept advanced in 1872 by the German mathematician Richard Dedekind that combines an arithmetic formulation of the idea of continuity with a rigorous distinction between rational and irrational numbers. Dedekind reasoned that the real numbers form an ordered continuum, so that any two numbers x and y must satisfy one and only one of the conditions x < y, x = y, or x > y. He postulated a cut that separates the continuum into two subsets, say X and Y, such that if x is any member of X and y is any member of Y, then x < y. If the cut is made so that X has a largest rational member or Y a least member, then the cut corresponds to a rational number. If, however, the cut is made so that X has no largest rational member and Y no least rational member, then the cut corresponds to an irrational number. For example, if X is the set of all real numbers x less than or equal to 22/7 and Y is the set of real numbers y greater than 22/7, then the largest member of X is the rational number 22/7. If, however, X is the set of all real numbers x such that x2 is less than or equal to 2 and Y is the set of real numbers y such that y2 is greater than 2, then X has no largest rational member and Y has no least rational member: the cut defines the irrational number √2.
