I have here a little problem with my homework, and would appreciate some direction.
I am attempting for some time now to show that every planar graph is embeddable into a grid (As large as needs be).
I tried to make this argument inductively in many ways, but I am afraid that I don't see any good way to do that so far. My main problem is that while the subgraph may be embeddable in a grid, it might not still be possible to connect the relevant nodes to the nodes added in the inductive stage after the reorganization.
While writing this down, I thought of another possible solution which might solve it - observing the embedding to the plain as an embedding in the Cartesian plane, and moving every node to a "very close" point whose both coordinates are rational. Taking the greatest common denominator of all the coordinates, I believe that I'll find myself in a (huge) grid as required.
