Math proof help, please! Relations and subsets involved. I don't see the solution! My math book proved that if sets \[A, B,C,D\] existed such that \[A \subseteq C \]and\[B \subseteq D\] then \[(A \times B) \subseteq (C \times D)\] I need to show that the converse of that is false. I think the converse is\[(A \times B) \subseteq (C \times D)\]implies\[A \subseteq C \]and\[B \subseteq D\]. But I can't understand how it is false for some group of sets \[A,B,C,D\].

    Alright, thanks.. I never went into writing a proof on that, but I thought about it and didn't see it working... Thank you!
