Then $x \lt a$ for all $x \in A$ and $y \lt b$ for all $y \in B$. So $x + y \lt a + b$ for all $x \in A$ and $y \in B$ and thus for all $(x +y) \in A+B$. Thus $a + b$ is an upper bound for $A+B$. A similar argument can be constructed for lower bounds. For 2) assume that $\sup{(A+B)} \ne \sup A + \sup B$ and come to a contradiction. For example: suppose that $\sup{(A+B)} \lt \sup A + \sup B$ then $\sup{(A+B)} = \sup (A) + \sup (B) - 4c$ for some $c \gt 0$. Thus we may take $a = \sup (A) - c \in A$ and $b = \sup (B) - c \in A$. Thus $a + b \in A+B$ by the definition of $A+B$, but $a+b \gt \sup{(A+B)}$. This contradiction means that $\sup{(A+B)} \not \lt \sup A + \sup B$. A similar argument shows that $\sup{(A+B)} \not \gt \sup A + \sup B$. Further similar arguments can be employed for part 3).

And we'll correct your work if there are errors.
