    Problem: Suppose is a bounded nonempty set and let . Show that
    .

    Before the proof, we need the following definitions and theorems.
    Definition 1: A nonempty set is bounded if there exists some , such that for any , we have .
    Definition 2: A nonempty set is upper bounded if there exists some , such that for any , we have .
    Definition 3: A nonempty set is lower bounded if there exists some , such that for any , we have
    Definition 4: For any nonempty set , is defined as the smallest upper bound of and is defined as the greatest lower bound of . In another word, if is an upper bound of and is the lower bound of , ...
