To say that a set A is tidy means that, for every x, if x is an element of A, then x is a subset of A. Also recall that, for any set X, we have defined the successor of X, S ( X ), to be the set X ∪ { X }.

  1. Suppose that U and V are both tidy. Prove that U ∩ V is tidy.
  2. Suppose that X is tidy. Prove that S ( X ) is tidy.

A set A is defined as tidy if for every x in A, {x} is a subset of A. The successor S (x) of any set Xis the set X0{x}. 1] Suppose Uand V are both tidy To prove: UnV is tidy.

Assume that UnV is tidy Then by definition, for every x in UnV, {x} is a subset of UnV Consecutively, {x} is a subset of U and {x} is a subset of V for every x in UnV. As xE UnV, then x eU andx e V; so for everyx in UnV means x is in U as well as V Our assumption is correct as U and V are both tidy Hence, UnV is tidy.
