# Thread: Proof of equality in the Natural Numbers

1. ## Proof of equality in the Natural Numbers

Let m,n be elements of the Integers. If m <= n <= m then m = n.

Seems obvious but I'm not sure of how to word this in a proof. Any help would be appreciated!

For example: suppose $m . Develop and get a contradiction.
