Title: Learning Objectives for Section 7.2 Sets

1
Learning Objectives for Section 7.2 Sets
• After todays lesson, you should be able to
• Identify and use set properties and set notation.
• Perform set operations.
• Solve applications involving sets.

2
Set Properties and Set Notation
• Definition A set is any collection of objects
• Notation e ? A means e is an element of A,
• or e belongs to set A.
• e ? A means e is not an element of A.

3
Set Notation (continued)
A ? B means A is a subset of B A B means
A and B have exactly the same elements A ? B
means A is not a subset of B A ? B means A
and B do not have exactly the same elements
4
Set Properties and Set Notation(continued)
• Example of a set Let A be the set of all the
letters in the alphabet. We write that as A
a, b, c, d, e, , z.
• This is called the listing method of specifying
a set.
• We use capital letters to represent sets.
• We list the elements of the set within braces,
separated by commas.
• The three dots () indicate that the pattern
continues.
• Question Is 3 a member of the set A?

5
Set-Builder Notation
• Sometimes it is convenient to represent sets
using set-builder notation.
• Example Using set-builder notation, write the
letters of the alphabet.
• A x x is a letter of the English
alphabet This is read, the set of all x such
that x is a letter of the English alphabet.
• It is equivalent to A a , b, c, d, e, , z
• Note x x2 9 3, -3
• This is read as the set of all x such that the
square of x equals 9.

6
Null Set
• Example What are the real number solutions of
the equation
• x2 1 0?
• ________________________________________________
• We represent the solution as the __________,
written ____ or ___.
• It is also called the _______________ set.

7
Subsets
• A is a subset of B if every element of A is also
contained in B. This is written
• A ? B.
• For example, the set of integers
• -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3,
• is a subset of the set of real numbers.
• Formal Definition
• A ? B means if x ? A, then x ? B.

8
Subsets(continued)
• Note
• Every set is a subset of itself.
• Ø (the null set) is a subset of every set.

9
Number of Subsets
• Example List all the subsets of set A bird,
cat, dog
• For convenience, we will use the notation A b,
c, d to represent set A.

10
Union of Sets(OR)
A ? B x x ? A or x ? B
The union of two sets A and B is the set of all
elements formed by combining all the elements of
set A and all the elements of set B into one set.
It is written A ? B.
In the Venn diagram on the left, the union of A
and B is the entire region shaded.
11
Intersection of Sets(AND)
A ? B x x ? A and x ? B
The intersection of two sets A and B is the set
of all elements that are common to both A and B.
It is written A ? B.
B
A
In the Venn diagram on the left, the intersection
of A and B is the shaded region.
12
Example
• Example Given A 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and B 1,
4, 9, 16 find
• A ? B .
• A ? B.

13
Disjoint Sets
• If two sets have no elements in common, they are
said to be disjoint. Two sets A and B are
disjoint if
• A ? B ?.
• Example The rational and irrational numbers are
disjoint.
• In symbols

14
The Universal Set
• The set of all elements under consideration is
called the universal set U.

U
15
The Complement of a Set(NOT)
• The complement of a set A is defined as the set
of elements that are contained in U, the
universal set, but not contained in set A. The
symbolism and notation for the complement of set
A are

In the Venn diagram on the left, the rectangle
represents the universal set. A? is the shaded
area outside the set A.
16
Venn Diagram
Refer to the Venn diagram below. The indicated
values represent the number of elements in each
region. How many elements are in each of the
indicated sets?
17
Application
A marketing survey of 1,000 car commuters found
that 600 listen to the news, 500 listen to music,
and 300 listen to both. Let N set of
commuters in the sample who listen to news Let M
set of commuters in the sample who listen to
music Find the number of commuters in the set
The number of elements in a set A is denoted by
n(A), so in this case we are looking for
18
Solution(continued)
The study is based on 1000 commuters, so
n(U)___________.
_____ people listen to neither news nor music
The set N (news listeners) consists of 600
elements all together. The middle part has
_______, so the other part must have _______
elements. Therefore,
U
M
N
______ listen to music but not news
______ listen to news but not music.
Fill in the remaining blanks.
_______ listen to both music and news
