Unformatted text preview: 2 . Let N = max f N 1 ;N 2 g : Then n & N guarantees that j a n A j < "= 2 and j b n B j < "= 2 . Thus n & N ) j ( a n b n ) ( A B ) j = j ( a n A ) + ( B b n ) j j a n A j + j B b n j < " 2 + " 2 = ": 4. Suppose A and B are nonempty sets of real numbers with A B: Then inf A & inf B: Proof. Assume that A and B are bounded below. Then both sets have &nite in&ma. Let & = inf A and = inf B: By de&nition, is a lower bound for B: Take any a 2 A: Then a 2 B by the containment A B; so a: This shows that is a lower bound for A: Since & is the greatest lower bound of A we can conclude & & : If B is not bounded below, then = 1 so the inequality & & is automatic. 1...
