Provide a counterexample for the following:

If (A-B)intersect(A-C)=empty set, then B intersect C = empty set.

Proof:

Assume that (A-B)intersect(A-C) does not equal the empty set. Let A={4,26}, B={4,23}, and C={26,23}. Since (A-C)=26 and (A-C)=4, that means that (A-B)intersect(A-C) does not equal the empty set. So B intersect C equals 23 which is also not the empty set.

Thank you for your help!
