Chapter 1 – SETS
Module – 2/2
By Smt. Mini Maria Tomy
PGT Mathematics
AECS KAIGA
Distance Learning Programme: An initiative by AEES, Mumbai
Learning Outcome
In this module we are going to learn about
• Intervals as subset of R
• Power set
• Universal set
• Venn diagrams
• Union of sets
• Intersection of sets
• Practical problems on Union & Intersection of sets
INTERVALS AS SUBSET OF REAL NUMBERS
Open Interval: Let a, b ∈ R and a < b. Then the set of real
numbers { x : a < x < b} is called an open interval and is
denoted by (a, b).
Closed Interval: Let a, b ∈ R and a < b. Then the set of real
numbers {x : a ≤ x ≤ b} is called closed interval and is
denoted by [ a, b ].
TYPES OF INTERVALS
 (a, b) = { x : a < x < b, x ∈ R}
 [a, b] = {x : a ≤ x ≤ b, x ∈ R}
 (a, b] = { x : a < x ≤ b, x ∈ R}
 [a, b) = { x : a ≤ x < b, x ∈ R}
 (0, ∞) = { x : 0 < x < ∞, x ∈ R}
 (- ∞,∞) = {x: -∞ < x < ∞, x ∈ R} = the set of real numbers R.

POWER SET
The collection of all subsets of a set A is called the power
set of A. It is denoted by P(A).
if A = { 1, 2 }, then P( A ) = { φ,{ 1 }, { 2 }, { 1,2 }}
In general, if A is a set with n(A) = m, then n [ P(A)] = 2m.
UNIVERSAL SET
In a particular context, we have to deal with the elements and
subsets of a basic set which is relevant to that particular
context. This basic set is called the “Universal Set”.
The universal set is usually denoted by U, and all its subsets by
the letters A, B, C, etc.
For example, for the set of all integers, the universal set can be
the set of rational numbers or the set R of real numbers.
VENN DIAGRAMS
Most of the relationships between sets can
be represented by means of diagrams which
are known as Venn diagrams.
Venn diagrams are named after the English
logician, John Venn (1834-1883).
In a Venn diagram, the universal set is
represented usually by a rectangle and its
subsets by circles or ellipses. John Venn (1834-1883).
UNION OF SETS
The union of two sets A and B is the set
C which consists of all those elements
which are either in A or in B (including
those which are in both).
A B
U
A ∪ B
The union of two sets A and B is denoted as A ∪ B and usually
read as ‘A union B’. Hence, A ∪ B = { x : x ∈A or x ∈B }
Some examples on union of two sets
Example 1 :
Let A = { 2, 4, 6, 8} and B = { 6, 8, 10, 12}. Find A ∪ B
Solution: A ∪ B = { 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12}
Example 2 :
Let A = { a, b, c, d } and B = { a, c}. Find A ∪ B
Solution: A ∪ B = {a, b, c, d }
Note : If, B ⊂ A, then A ∪ B = A.
PROPERTIES OF UNION OF TWO SETS
i) A ∪ B = B ∪ A (Commutative law)
ii) (A ∪ B) ∪ C = A ∪ (B ∪ C) (Associative law )
iii) A ∪ ∅ = A (Law of identity element, ∅ is the identity of ∪)
iv) A ∪ A = A (Idempotent law)
v) U ∪ A = U (Law of U)
INTERSECTION OF TWO SETS
The intersection of two sets A and B
is the set of all those elements which
belong to both A and B.
Symbolically, we write A ∩ B = {x : x ∈ A and x ∈ B}.
Example:
Let A = {1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8} and B = { 2, 3, 5, 7, 9}, find A∩B.
Solution: A∩B = {3, 5, 7}.
Note: If A ⊂ B ,then A∩B = B
A ∩ B
U
A B
PROPERTIES OF INTERSECTION OF TWO SETS
i) A ∩ B = B ∩ A (Commutative law).
ii) ( A ∩ B ) ∩ C = A ∩ ( B ∩ C ) (Associative law).
iii) ∅ ∩ A = ∅ , U ∩ A = A (Law of ∅ and U).
iv) A ∩ A = A (Idempotent law)
v) A∩( B ∪ C) = ( A ∩ B ) ∪ ( A ∩ C ) (Distributive law )
Distribution of Intersection over Union
B ∪ C A∩ (B∪ C )
A ∩ B A ∩ C ( A ∩ B ) ∪ ( A ∩ C )
Practical problems on Union & Intersection of sets
 if A and B are finite sets, then
n ( A ∪ B ) = n ( A ) + n ( B ) – n ( A ∩ B )
 If A ∩ B = φ, then, n ( A ∪ B ) = n ( A ) + n ( B )
 If A, B and C are finite sets, then
n(A∪ B∪ C) = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) – n (A∩B ) – n(B∩C) –
n(A∩C) + n(A∩B∩C)
Example
In a school there are 20 teachers who teach mathematics or
physics. Of these, 12 teach mathematics and 4 teach both
physics and mathematics. How many teach physics ?
Solution:Let M denote the set of teachers who teach
mathematics and P denote the set of teachers who teach
physics. Then,
n(M∪P ) = 20, n(M ) = 12 , n(M∩P ) = 4, n(P)= ?
n ( M ∪ P ) = n ( M ) + n ( P ) – n ( M ∩ P ),
we obtain
20 = 12 + n ( P ) – 4 Thus n ( P ) = 12
Hence 12 teachers teach physics.
What have we learned today?
 Intervals are subsets of R.
 The power set P(A) of a set A is the collection of all subsets of A.
 The union of two sets A and B is the set of all those elements
which are either in A or in B.
 The intersection of two sets A and B is the set of all elements
which are common in A and B.
 If A and B are finite sets then n(A∪B) = n(A)+n(B) – n(A∩B)
 If A ∩ B = φ, then n (A ∪ B) = n (A) + n (B) .

  • 10. Some examples on union of two sets Example 1 : Let A = { 2, 4, 6, 8} and B = { 6, 8, 10, 12}. Find A ∪ B Solution: A ∪ B = { 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12} Example 2 : Let A = { a, b, c, d } and B = { a, c}. Find A ∪ B Solution: A ∪ B = {a, b, c, d } Note : If, B ⊂ A, then A ∪ B = A.

  • 14. Distribution of Intersection over Union B ∪ C A∩ (B∪ C ) A ∩ B A ∩ C ( A ∩ B ) ∪ ( A ∩ C )
  • 15. Practical problems on Union & Intersection of sets  if A and B are finite sets, then n ( A ∪ B ) = n ( A ) + n ( B ) – n ( A ∩ B )  If A ∩ B = φ, then, n ( A ∪ B ) = n ( A ) + n ( B )  If A, B and C are finite sets, then n(A∪ B∪ C) = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) – n (A∩B ) – n(B∩C) – n(A∩C) + n(A∩B∩C)
  • 16. Example In a school there are 20 teachers who teach mathematics or physics. Of these, 12 teach mathematics and 4 teach both physics and mathematics. How many teach physics ? Solution:Let M denote the set of teachers who teach mathematics and P denote the set of teachers who teach physics. Then, n(M∪P ) = 20, n(M ) = 12 , n(M∩P ) = 4, n(P)= ? n ( M ∪ P ) = n ( M ) + n ( P ) – n ( M ∩ P ), we obtain 20 = 12 + n ( P ) – 4 Thus n ( P ) = 12 Hence 12 teachers teach physics.
  • 17. What have we learned today?  Intervals are subsets of R.  The power set P(A) of a set A is the collection of all subsets of A.  The union of two sets A and B is the set of all those elements which are either in A or in B.  The intersection of two sets A and B is the set of all elements which are common in A and B.  If A and B are finite sets then n(A∪B) = n(A)+n(B) – n(A∩B)  If A ∩ B = φ, then n (A ∪ B) = n (A) + n (B) .
