Frankly what you have written makes little sense. If A and B are

**sets**then " " is meaningless because there is no**operation**in a set. Apparently you are talking about**groups**, not sets. But even then you have to**define**<A>. You appear to mean a sub-group generated by a single element of the group but which element? Or are you assuming from the start that A and B are themselves generated by a single element? - Oct 10th 2011, 07:47 AMSwlabrRe: A is a subset of B
