Look them up and be educated:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Without_loss_of_generality
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/process
A proof is a process, especially a constructive proof like the one I gave in
http://mathforum.org/kb/message.jspa?messageID=7889634
of how to construct the location of product ab on the real number line from being given the locations of 1, a, and b on the real number line, where a and b are arbitrary reals.
What is your training in mathematics?
