Using the Lorentz transformation from special relativity, we get that the sum of two velocities can be expressed as
Given that $|u'|,|v| \le c$, I want to prove that $|u| \le c$, ie. that the velocity never exceeds $c$. However I am struggling to produce this bound. I have tried to bound the denominator from above but this produces zero and have tried a case wise approach but this has got me no where either.
