Lemma 87.14.5. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $X$ be an algebraic space over $S$. Let $T \subset |X|$ be a closed subset. The reduction $(X_{/T})_{red}$ of the completion $X_{/T}$ of $X$ along $T$ is the reduced induced closed subspace $Z$ of $X$ corresponding to $T$.

**Proof.**
It follows from Lemma 87.12.1, Properties of Spaces, Definition 66.12.5 (which uses Properties of Spaces, Lemma 66.12.3 to construct $Z$), and the definition of $X_{/T}$ that $Z$ and $(X_{/T})_{red}$ are reduced algebraic spaces characterized the same mapping property: a morphism $g : Y \to X$ whose source is a reduced algebraic space factors through them if and only if $|Y|$ maps into $T \subset |X|$.
