Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to prove that b^{r+s}=b^r*b^s for any real r,s where b^r = sup{b^t:t \leq r} and t is rational. (This is prob 1.6f in Rudin)

My question. Can one show that for two sets X and Y:

sup(XY)=(supX)(supY) where XY = {x*y: x\in X, y\in Y}

Thanks,

E
