How Can I Prove That :

1 - A Is a Subset Or Equal To P(A)

2- P(A/\B) = P(A) /\ P(B)

WHRE A AND B ARE SETS

/\ IS INTERSECTION

Thanks FOR THE HELP IN ADVANCE

**You must redo your posting**!

Read it again. It is impossible for A to equal P(A).

What is B? What does /\ mean? - Mar 13th 2008, 09:26 AMKOXKOXKOX

Please answer the whole question.

What is B?

Do you mean A is a subset of B or of P(B)?

As it is, the question is not yet clear. - Mar 13th 2008, 09:37 AMKOXKOXKOX

Well #1 is FALSE.

The power set of A, P(A), is the collection of all subsets of A.

Now it is true because .

But cannot happen that .

#2 is simply a matter of noting that .
