Since Y is given to be closed in X , A is the intersection of two closed sets in X , and hence is closed in X . ± Exercise 6 from Section 17, page 101 (a) ¯ B is a closed set that contains B , so it contains A as well. Hence ¯ A ¯ B . (b) ¯ A ¯ B is closed, being the finite union of closed sets, and contains A B , so it must contain the closure A B as well. The other inclusion is a special case of (c). (c) For each α , A α S A α , so ¯ A α S A α . Consequently, S ¯ A α S A α . An example where equality fails is given by A n = [1 / n , 1], n Z + in R . Each A n is closed, so S ¯ A n = S A n = (0 , 1]. However, S A n = (0 , 1] = [0 , 1]. ± Exercise 7 from Section 17, page 101 The given “proof” fails because, while every neighborhood U of x must intersect some A α , each such neighborhood may intersect a di erent A α , leaving x in the closure of none.
