# Image of Small Class under Mapping is Small

## Theorem

Let $A$ be a mapping.

Let $a$ be a small class.

Then, the image of $a$ under $A$ is small.

## Proof

This page is beyond the scope of ZFC, and should not be used in anything other than the theory in which it resides.

If you believe that the contents of this page can be reworked to allow ZFC, then you can discuss it at the talk page.

Since $A$ is a mapping:

$\forall y: \exists x: \forall z: \left({ y A z \implies z = x }\right)$

This satisfies the antecedent of the axiom of replacement. Therefore:

$\forall w: \exists x: \forall y: \left({ y \in w \implies \forall z: \left({ y A z \implies z \in x }\right) }\right)$

Universal Instantiation yields:

$\exists x: \forall y: \left({ y \in a \implies \forall z: \left({ y A z \implies z \in x }\right) }\right)$

By applying the definition for the restricted universal quantifier and rearranging quantifiers:

$\exists x: \forall z: \left({ \exists y \in a: y A z \implies z \in x }\right)$

Applying the definition for image:

$\exists x: \operatorname{Im} \left({a}\right) \subseteq x$

By Axiom of Subsets Equivalents, the image of $a$ under $A$ must be small.
