Lemma 7.45.2. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a site. Let $a, b : V \to U$ be objects of $\mathcal{C}$ such that

$\xymatrix{ h_ V^\# \ar@<1ex>[r] \ar@<-1ex>[r] & h_ U^\# \ar[r] & {*} }$

is a coequalizer in $\mathop{\mathit{Sh}}\nolimits (\mathcal{C})$. Then $\Gamma (\mathcal{C}, \mathcal{F})$ is the equalizer of $a^*, b^* : \mathcal{F}(U) \to \mathcal{F}(V)$.

Proof. Since $\mathop{\mathrm{Mor}}\nolimits _{\mathop{\mathit{Sh}}\nolimits (\mathcal{C})}(h_ U^\# , \mathcal{F}) = \mathcal{F}(U)$ this is clear from the definitions. $\square$
