Prove that: F(x1,x2, xn)<=min Fi(xi)

    1. Prove that: F(x1,x2,...xn)<=min Fi(xi)

    Where F is a DF on (x1....xn)

    I know that this is very intuitive. But I am not able to find proper mathematical argument for that.

    Assuming "DF" means (cumulative) distribution function, try writing out the left and right sides in terms of probabilities.
