Discrete Mathematics With ApplicationsThe following are two proofs that for all sets A and B , A − B ⊆ A . The first is less formal, and the second is more formal. Fill on the blanks. Proof: Suppose A and B are any sets. To show that A − B ⊆ A , we must show that every element in (1) is in (2) But any element in A - B is in (2) But any element in A - B is in (3) and not in (4) (by definition of A - B ). In particular, such an element is in A . Proof: Suppose A and B are any sets and x ∈ A − B . [We must shoe that (1) J By definition of A - B ). In particular, such an element is in A.BuyFind*arrow_forward*
