    well one way is trivial, since \(f(A\cap B)\subset f(A)\cap f(B)\) for any \(f\)

    or does that need clarification as well? we can write it out if you like

    suppose \(z\in f(A\cap B)\) 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 \(z\in f(A)\cap f(B)\)

    this shows for any \(f\) you have \(f(A\cap B)\subset f(A)\cap f(B)\)

    now 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 \[f(A)\cap f(B)\subset f(A\cap B)\]

    pick 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 \[z\in f(A\cap B)\]

    typo there, i meant "likewise there exists \(x_2\in B\) with \(f(x_2)=z\) sorry

    so that is the proof one way, that "if \(f\) is injective, then \(f(A\cap B)=f(A)\cap f(B)\)

    other way is easier, since a singleton is a set
