It is known that E(x) has one of the following structures: a finite union of closed intervals, a set homeomorphic to the Cantor set, a set homeomorphic to the set T of subsums of Σn=1∞ x(n) where c(2n − 1) = 3/4n and c(2n) = 2/4n (Cantorval). Based on ideas of Jones and Velleman [Jones R., Achievement sets of sequences, Amer. Math.
