Is it okay?
For sets A,B:
Prove that P(power set)(A) U P(B) is contained in P(AUB)
I wrote:
Let S be a subset and let S belong to P(AUB)
Then S belongs to P(AUB) iff S is contained in (AUB)
and S is contained in (AUB) iff S is contained in A and S is contained in B
iff S belongs to the power set of A and the power set of B, which is equivalent to S belongs to P(A)U P(B)
Is it okay?
Let me try this then, which seems too easy.
Let X be a set and let X be contained in A and also let X be contained in B.
So P(X) is contained in P(A) And in P(B) so P(X) is contained in P(A)UP(B).
So X is contained in (AUB), then P(X) is contained in P(AUB)
Seems wrong, but I don't know.
Wow....that's so incredibly simple that I would never have thought of it. Thank you.
If you have some time, would you mind checking the proof I have here at the last post as well:
