# Definition:Bounded Metric Space/Definition 2

## Definition

Let $M = \left({A, d}\right)$ be a metric space.

Let $M' = \left({B, d_B}\right)$ be a subspace of $M$.

$M'$ is bounded if and only if:

$\exists K \in \R: \forall x, y \in M': d \left({x, y}\right) \le K$

That is, there exists a finite distance such that all pairs of elements of $B$ are within that distance.
