SETS A = {1, 3, 2, 5} n(A) = | A | = 4 Sets use “curly” brackets The number of elements in Set A is 4 Sets are denoted by Capital letters 3 is an element of A 7 is not an element of A

PowerPoint Presentation:

A set is a distinct collection of objects. The objects are called elements . {1, 2, 3, 4} = {2, 3, 1, 4} Order does not matter. If a set contains the same elements as another set, the sets are equal. {1, 3, 2, 3, 5, 2} We never repeat elements in a set. {1, 3, 2, 5} This symbol means "is a subset of" This is read "A is a subset of B". A B A = {1, 2, 3} B = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} {1, 2, 3, 5} In ascending order

PowerPoint Presentation:

If a set doesn't contain any elements it is called the empty set or the null set . It is denoted by or { }. NOT { } It is agreed that the empty set is a subset of all other sets so: List all of the subsets of {1, 2, 3}. Notice the empty set is NOT in set brackets. {1} {2} {3} {1, 2} {1, 3} {2, 3} {1, 2, 3}

PowerPoint Presentation:

A B This is the union symbol. It means the set that consists of all elements of set A and all elements of set B . = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9} Remember we do not list elements more than once. A B This is the intersect symbol. It means the set containing all elements that are in both A and B. = {1, 3, 5} A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} B = {1, 3, 5, 7, 9}

PowerPoint Presentation:

These sets can be visualized with circles in what is called a Venn Diagram. A B A B Everything that is in A or B . A B A B Everything that is in A AND B . A B

PowerPoint Presentation:

Often will have a set that contains all elements that we wish to consider. This is called the universal set . All other sets are subsets of this set. Universal Set A B A B = There are no elements in both A and B . When this is the case they are called disjoint sets. This means the complement of A , and means the set of all elements in the universal set that are not in A. A A

PowerPoint Presentation:

100 people were surveyed. 52 people in a survey owned a cat. 36 people owned a dog. 24 did not own a dog or cat. Draw a Venn diagram. universal set is 100 people surveyed C D Set C is the cat owners and Set D is the dog owners. The sets are NOT disjoint. Some people could own both a dog and a cat. 24 Since 24 did not own a dog or cat, there must be 76 that do. n ( C D ) = 76 This n means the number of elements in the set 52 + 36 = 88 so there must be 88 - 76 = 12 people that own both a dog and a cat. 12 40 24 Counting Formula: n ( A B ) = n ( A ) + n ( B ) - n ( A B )
