(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Prove true:

For any subspaces U,V of R^n dim(U intersect V) <= min(dim(U), dim(V))

2. Relevant equations

Min(a,b) = the minimum value of A and B

3. The attempt at a solution

I know this statement is true however I can't quite figure out where to start on how to prove this...Help please.
