Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i was just rewriting so i could read it, i am not sure i know how to do it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well one way is trivial, since \(f(A\cap B)\subset f(A)\cap f(B)\) for any \(f\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or does that need clarification as well? we can write it out if you like

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0suppose \(z\in f(A\cap B)\) then \(z=f(x)\) for some \(x\in A\cap B\) making \(x\in A\) and \(x\in B\) so \(z\in f(A)\) and \(z\in f(B)\) therefore \(z\in f(A)\cap f(B)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this shows for any \(f\) you have \(f(A\cap B)\subset f(A)\cap f(B)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now we need to prove that if \(f\) in injective, we have \(f(A\cap B)=f(A)\cap f(B)\) since we already have containment one way, this amounts to showing \[f(A)\cap f(B)\subset f(A\cap B)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0pick a \(z\in f(A)\cap f(B)\) so there exists a \(x_1\) in \(A\) with \(f(x_1)=z\) and likewise there is a \(x_2\) in \( B\) with \(z=x_2\) now comes the "injective" part since \(f\) is injective, and \(f(x_1)=f(x_2)=z\) we know \(x_1=x_2\) and so \[z\in f(A\cap B)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0typo there, i meant "likewise there exists \(x_2\in B\) with \(f(x_2)=z\) sorry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so that is the proof one way, that "if \(f\) is injective, then \(f(A\cap B)=f(A)\cap f(B)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0other way is easier, since a singleton is a set
