use the definition of conditional probability and the fact that \[P(A)\le P(A\cup B)\]

P( A intersect B  A) = P( (A intersect B) intersect A)/P(A) = P(A intersect B)/P(A) P( A intersect B  A union B) = P( {A intersect B} intersect {A union B})/P(A union B) ..= P(A intersect B)/P(A union B). As the numerators for the two expressions are equal, while the denominator defining P( A intersect B  A union B) is larger than the denominator defining P( A intersect B  A ), it follows that P( A intersect B  A) >= P( A intersect B  A union B)
