1. An inequality

Please consider the following. Either prove or give a counter-example.
If $\large 0\le a\le x\le 1~\&~0\le b\le y\le 1$ then $\large a+b-a\cdot b\le x+y-x\cdot y$

This is related to "probability of union" post, yes?

It appears true, I haven't been able to find a counter example but also haven't been able to prove it (yet).

3. Re: An inequality

$\displaystyle 1-a\geq 1-x \geq 0$

$\displaystyle 1-b\geq 1-y\geq 0$

Multiply

$\displaystyle (1-a)(1-b)\geq (1-x)(1-y)$
