## Theorem

Let $\struct {S, \preceq}$ be a preordered set.

Let $A, B$ be subsets of $S$ such that

- $B \subseteq A$

Let $L$ be an element of $S$.

Let $L$ be a lower bound for $A$.

Then $L$ is a lower bound for $B$.

## Proof

Let $L$ be a lower bound for $A$.

By definition of lower bound:

- $\forall x \in A: L \preceq x$

By definition of subset:

- $\forall x \in B: x \in A$

Hence:

- $\forall x \in B: L \preceq x$

Thus by definition:

- $L$ is a lower bound for $B$.

$\blacksquare$
