Lemma 15.62.9. Let $R$ be a ring. Let $m \in \mathbf{Z}$. If $K^\bullet \oplus L^\bullet $ is $m$-pseudo-coherent (resp. pseudo-coherent) so are $K^\bullet $ and $L^\bullet $.

**Proof.**
In this proof we drop the superscript ${}^\bullet $. Assume that $K \oplus L$ is $m$-pseudo-coherent. It is clear that $K, L \in D^{-}(R)$. Note that there is a distinguished triangle

see Derived Categories, Lemma 13.4.9. By Lemma 15.62.2 we see that $L \oplus L[1]$ is $m$-pseudo-coherent. Hence also $L[1] \oplus L[2]$ is $m$-pseudo-coherent. By induction $L[n] \oplus L[n + 1]$ is $m$-pseudo-coherent. By Lemma 15.62.8 we see that $L[n]$ is $m$-pseudo-coherent for large $n$. Hence working backwards, using the distinguished triangles

we conclude that $L[n], L[n - 1], \ldots , L$ are $m$-pseudo-coherent as desired. The pseudo-coherent case follows from this and Lemma 15.62.5. $\square$
