Set
A collection of objects
Element or Member

Empty or Null Set
a set with no elements
Empty Set Symbol
{ } or ∅
Element Symbol

(T/F) ∅ ⊆
...
Union Symbol
∪
Union Example:
A = {1, 3, 7, 8, 10}
B = {1, 4, 6, 10}
A ∪ B = {1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10}
Intersection Example:
A = {1, 3, 7, 8, 10}
B = {1, 4, 6, 10}
A ∩ B = {1, 10}
Intersection
the set of element common to all the sets
Intersection symbol
∩
What are the two main set operations?
union and intersection
subset
a set that is another set in every element of the first is contained in the second set

Subset Example
A⊆B
"A is a subset of B"
A⊆B
