I am new in category theory. I am trying to prove the well known fact that if you have a commutative diagram of the form □□, where each square is a pullback, then the whole diagram is a pullback too, and hence deduce that the pullback of a pullback square is a pullback. Every book I have looked at has this as an exercise, but I (embarrasingly, I know) cannot see the solution. I have tried using the universality property of the two pullbacks but i am lost in calculations. If someone could help, I would really appreciate it.
