# Find the mistake in the following “proof” that for all sets A and B. ( A − B ) ∪ ( A ∩ B ) ⊆ A . “Proof: Suppose A and B are any sets, and suppose x ∈ ( A − B ) ∪ ( A ∩ B ) . If x ∈ A then x ∈ A − B , and so, by definition of difference, x ∈ A and x ∈ B . In particular, x ∈ A , and, therefore, ( A − B ) ∪ ( A ∩ B ) ⊆ A by definition of subset.”
