Lemma 10.121.9. Let $A \to B$ and $B \to C$ be ring homomorphisms such that $A \to C$ is of finite type. Let $\mathfrak r$ be a prime of $C$ lying over $\mathfrak q \subset B$ and $\mathfrak p \subset A$. If $A \to C$ is quasi-finite at $\mathfrak r$, then $B \to C$ is quasi-finite at $\mathfrak r$.

**Proof.**
Observe that $B \to C$ is of finite type (Lemma 10.6.2) so that the statement makes sense. Let us use characterization (3) of Lemma 10.121.2. If $A \to C$ is quasi-finite at $\mathfrak r$, then there exists some $c \in C$ such that

Since the primes $\mathfrak r' \subset C$ lying over $\mathfrak q$ form a subset of the primes $\mathfrak r' \subset C$ lying over $\mathfrak p$ we conclude $B \to C$ is quasi-finite at $\mathfrak r$. $\square$
