# Subcover is Refinement of Cover/Corollary

## Corollary to Subcover is Refinement of Cover

Let $T = \left({X, \tau}\right)$ be a topological space.

Let $\mathcal U$ be an open cover for $S$.

Let $\mathcal V$ be a subcover of $\mathcal U$.

Then $\mathcal V$ is an open refinement of $\mathcal U$.

## Proof

As all the elements of $\mathcal U$ are open, all the elements of $\mathcal V$ are likewise open.

Hence the result from definition of open refinement.
