    Write them out.

    A=\{ 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, ... \}
    B= \{ 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, ... \}

    Since A=B we get that A \subseteq B is true.

    The above is hardly rigorous.

    Prove that if n is even then n^2 is even. This should be trivial: n = 2m so n^2 = 2(2m^2).

    Hence if n \in A then n\in B so A \subset B.

    Thank you both! Completely understand it now!

    Think so, it seems to be fairly important for computer science. This is a question from my degree, though, which is a mathematics and economics degree and this was in one of my maths modules this year.

    Thanks for replying! I asked because i'm looking to a Computer Science degree next year hopefully and it looks similar to what I may need to learn
