let A, B be ext-real-membered set ; :: thesis: ( A is interval & B is interval & A meets B implies A \/ B is interval )
assume that
A1: A is interval and
A2: B is interval ; :: thesis: ( not A meets B or A \/ B is interval )
given z being ExtReal such that A3: z in A and
A4: z in B ; :: according to MEMBERED:def 20 :: thesis: A \/ B is interval
for x, y, r being ExtReal st x in A \/ B & y in A \/ B & x <= r & r <= y holds
r in A \/ B
proof
let x, y, r be ExtReal; :: thesis: ( x in A \/ B & y in A \/ B & x <= r & r <= y implies r in A \/ B )
assume that
A5: x in A \/ B and
A6: y in A \/ B and
A7: x <= r and
A8: r <= y ; :: thesis: r in A \/ B
per cases ( ( x in A & y in A ) or ( x in A & y in B ) or ( x in B & y in A ) or ( x in B & y in B ) ) by ;
suppose ( x in A & y in A ) ; :: thesis: r in A \/ B
then r in A by A1, A7, A8, Th80;
hence r in A \/ B by XBOOLE_0:def 3; :: thesis: verum
end;
suppose ( x in B & y in B ) ; :: thesis: r in A \/ B
then r in B by A2, A7, A8, Th80;
hence r in A \/ B by XBOOLE_0:def 3; :: thesis: verum
end;
end;
end;
hence A \/ B is interval by Th88; :: thesis: verum
