1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Suppose that m and n are both maxima of a set S. Prove that m = n. 2. Relevant equations None 3. The attempt at a solution My proof seems much different than the answer key. Here is mine: Suppose m ≠ n. Take m = max S. We know that m = sup S since m is an upperbound for S and that m ∈ S. If n>m, then n is an upperbound for S. n must be the least upperbound since we know n ∈ S. But we originally said m = sup S, and we know sup S is unique (from a previous theorem). This is a contradiction, so n is not greater than m. If n<m, then n is not an upperbound for S. But we know that n = max S, which means that n is the least upperbound for S, a contradiction. So n is not less than m. We have that m must equal n. The question is trivially obvious, which is why I think it's a little tough to prove...we can just say it's obvious. But it's hard to not do that...if you know what I'm saying. Anyways I just feel like my proof might be circular or not detailed enough. Please let me know if there is anything I could do better, thank you all in advance!
