Proof work - Topology Images and Inverse Images

In summary, we have proven that f(U) - f(V) is a subset of f(U-v) by showing that for any x in f(U-v), f(x) belongs to U and not V, and therefore belongs to f(U) - f(V). This is useful for understanding functions and their subsets.

1. Let f:X->Y be a function and let U be a subset of X and V a subset of X. Prove that f(U) - f(v) is a subset of f(U-v).



3. The Attempt at a Solution

Suppose x belongs to f(U-v), then f(x) belongs to U-V and then f(x) does not belong to V so f(x) belongs to U. Then it holds that f(U) - f(v) is a subset of f(U-V).

I will be honest I am totally lost. This is my first Masters class and I am doing it online. I can't wait for the semester to end so I can switch Masters programs. But I need to make it through first.

Let U and V be subsets of X. Let x∈U−V, then f(x)∈f(U−V). Since x∉V, it follows that f(x)∉f(V). Thus, f(x)∈f(U)−f(V). Therefore, f(U)−f(V)⊆f(U−V).
