**Use an element argument to prove each statement in 7-22. Assume that all sets are subsets of a universal set ****U.**

For all sets *A*, *B*, and *C*,

To determine

Find the mistake in the following “proof”.

“Theorem” for all sets

“Proof:Suppose

Thus

**Given information:**

Let

**Concept used:**

**Calculation:**

Let

Prove that

Suppose there is an element

By definition of complement it follows that
