Let A(i) be the event that the first ith person have different birthdays for i=1,2,3...,n.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We note that A(i+1) is a subset of Ai such that Ai(A(i+1))= A(i+1)

I wonder why A(i+1) is a subset of Ai. If the first 3 people have no birthdays in common, shouldn't that also mean the first 2 people doesn't either? By that logic, shouldnt Ai be the subset of A(i+1)?
