## Theorem

Let $\struct {S, \tau}$ be a completely normal space.

Then $\struct {S, \tau}$ is also a normal space.

## Proof

Let $\struct {S, \tau}$ be a completely normal space.

From the definition, $\struct {S, \tau}$ is a completely normal space if and only if:

- $\struct {S, \tau}$ is a $T_5$ space
- $\struct {S, \tau}$ is a $T_1$ (Fréchet) space.

We have that a $T_5$ space is a $T_4$ space.

So:

- $\struct {S, \tau}$ is a $T_4$ space
- $\struct {S, \tau}$ is a $T_1$ (Fréchet) space.

which is precisely the definition of a normal space.

$\blacksquare$
