a subset of natural number



Let A={a_i} and B={b_i} (i=[1,100]) be 2 sets natural numbers
(delivered randomly in range [1,10])
for example, i=8 then
A={1,2,5,6,7,8,5,6}
B={4,1,2,5,7,10,5,6}
I like to prove that there exists a repeated pattern of A in B that is
largest, in my example it is {1,2,5}

First, you're not talking about sets, you're talking about
sequences.
Anyway, the existence of a largest repeated pattern from A in B
is obvious. Look at all the subsequences of A that appear in
B. There are only finitely many. One of them has maximal length.
(Maybe by "largest" you mean that it is _strictly_ longer than
any other repeated subsequence? You can't prove that because
it's easy to give examples where it's not true.)
