The proofs of these properties are both interesting and insightful. They illustrate the power of the third axiom, and its interaction with the remaining two axioms. When studying axiomatic probability theory, many deep consequences follow from merely these three axioms. In order to verify the monotonicity property, we set E_1=A and E_2=B\backslash A, where \quad A\subseteq B \text{ and } E_i=\varnothing for i\geq 3. It is easy to see that the sets E_i are pairwise disjoint and E_1\cup E_2\cup\ldots=B. Hence, we obtain from the third axiom that  P(A)+P(B\backslash A)+\sum_{i=3}^\infty P(\varnothing)=P(B).
