Homework Help: Is it possible to prove this set inequality given the constraints?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations

    I have to use these set identities:




    3. The attempt at a solution

    Pretty sure this is impossible since it's an inequality.

    I thunk you can convert the inequality in two equalities with the right set and theorem 6.2.3.

    Nice, I proved it using this and it only took 19 steps.
