Lemma 31.11.3. Let $X$ be a scheme which is set theoretically the union of finitely many affine closed subschemes. Then $X$ is affine.

**Proof.**
Let $Z_ i \subset X$, $i = 1, \ldots , n$ be affine closed subschemes such that $X = \bigcup Z_ i$ set theoretically. Then $\coprod Z_ i \to X$ is surjective and integral with affine source. Hence $X$ is affine by Proposition 31.11.2.
