# number of elements in a sigma algebra generated by a finite algebra

We have a set A with finite elements, where A is a subset of Power set of Omega. prove that total number of elements in the sigma algebra generated by A is at most 2^2^|Omega|

Suppose that $\Sigma$ is a $\sigma$-algebra generated by $A$, then $\Sigma \subseteq \wp(A)$; and since $A \subseteq \wp(\Omega)$, so consequently $|\Sigma|\le 2^{|A|}$ and $|A|\le 2^{|\Omega|}$. Hence $|\Sigma|\le 2^{2^{|\Omega|}}$
