Trying to prove some of the basic laws in set theory, and would like any opinions on 1 of my proofs (eg hints on how can I improve it, is it even a valid proof). Thanks in advance.

[tex](A \subseteq B \wedge B \subseteq C) \rightarrow (A \subseteq C)[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

1) [tex]\forall x \in A, x \in B$[/tex] - definition of a subset

2) [tex]\forall x \in B, x \in C[/tex] - definition of a subset

3) [tex]\forall x \in A, x \in C[/tex] - 1, 2

4) [tex]A \subseteq C[/tex] - 3, definition of a subset
