Being logically inept (never took a class, and don't know what Rose and AKG are talking about), I've always imagined there was direct correlation to set theory, so please excuse my ignorance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Someone tell me where this is wrong.

Let A, B, C be the following sets :

A = {2,4}

B = {2,3}

C = {1,2}

So, B&C = {2}, which is indeed a subset of A

Also, A&C = {2}, which is a subset of B

So, this example satisfies both the conditions of the premise.

However, AvB = {2,3,4}, which is not a superset of C.

A counterexample, wot ?

Or are A,B,C binary valued variables (meaning I don't have a clue what \supset and \subset are in this context) ?

Sorry, for the inconvenience. I do not wish to derail this thread, so feel free to ignore this post for now (but it would be nice to have my ignoramic queries answered in another thread perhaps).
