Remark Let $n \geq 1$ and let $\overrightarrow {X}: [n] \rightarrow \operatorname{Set_{\Delta }}$ be a diagram of simplicial sets which we denote by

\[ X(0) \rightarrow X(1) \rightarrow X(2) \rightarrow \cdots \rightarrow X(n). \]

Let $\overrightarrow {X}': [n] \rightarrow \operatorname{Set_{\Delta }}$ denote the constant diagram taking the value $X(0)$. Let $\overrightarrow {X}_0 \subseteq \overrightarrow {X}$ be the subfunctor given by the diagram

\[ \emptyset \rightarrow X(1) \rightarrow X(2) \rightarrow \cdots \rightarrow X(n), \]

and define $\overrightarrow {X}'_0 \subseteq \overrightarrow {X}'$ similarly, so that we have a pushout diagram

\[ \xymatrix@R =50pt@C=50pt{ \overrightarrow {X}'_0 \ar [r] \ar [d] & \overrightarrow {X}_0 \ar [d] \\ \overrightarrow {X}' \ar [r] & \overrightarrow {X} } \]

in the category $\operatorname{Fun}( [n], \operatorname{Set_{\Delta }})$. Combining Remark, Example, and Example, we obtain a pushout diagram of simplicial sets

\[ \xymatrix@R =50pt@C=50pt{ \operatorname{N}_{\bullet }( \{ 1 < 2 < \cdots < n \} ) \times X(0) \ar [r] \ar [d] & M( X(1) \rightarrow \cdots \rightarrow X(n) ) \ar [d] \\ \Delta ^ n \times X(0) \ar [r] & M( X(0) \rightarrow \cdots \rightarrow X(n) ). } \]
