- 2. Set Properties and Set Notation Set OperationsA set is any collection of objects speciﬁed in such a waythat we can determine whether a given object is or is not inthe collection. university-logo Math 1300 Finite Mathematics
- 3. Set Properties and Set Notation Set OperationsA set is any collection of objects speciﬁed in such a waythat we can determine whether a given object is or is not inthe collection.Capital letters, such as A, B, and C are often used todesignate particular sets. university-logo Math 1300 Finite Mathematics
