# Union of any finite collection of bounded sets is bounded

If you could evaluate my proof on scale of 1-5 in clarity, conciseness, and validity, I would appreciate your 2 cent!!!

Sketch of Proof in words:

Consider for some $n\in\mathbb{N}$, $\bigcup^{n}_{i=1} P_i$ where $P_i$ is a bounded set in arbitrary metric space $(X,d)$.
By boundedness, for each $i$, $\exists x^*\in X,\exists M_i\in\mathbb{R}$, $d(x^*,p)\leq M_i$ $\forall p\in P_i$.
Let $M^*= \max\{M_i:i=1,...,n\}$.
If $q$ is in the union, then for some $i$, $q\in P_i$.
$d(q,x^*)\leq M_i\leq M^*$.
The union of any finite collection of bounded sets is bounded. QED
