Solving Universal Sets - A ∩ B

by Elizabeth
(WI)










































Intersection of two sets

     • The set of all the possible elements is called a universal set. It is usually denoted by the symbol “U”.

         U = universal set = {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}

         set A = {1,3,4,5,9}

         set B ={2,4,6,7,8}

     • What is A ∩ B (the intersection of set A and set B)?

Intersection of two sets

Answer:


The following diagram is a visual representation of the Universal Set “U” described in the problem statement.

U = universal set = {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}


Venn Diagram:  Universal Set “U” =  {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}





Set A is composed of some (but not all) of the numbers in the Universal Set “U”.

set A = {1,3,4,5,9}

Because of this relationship between the two sets, Set A is a called a proper subset (math symbol ⊂)of the universal set “U”.

Set A ⊂Universal Set “U”

Or

A ⊂ U


This is shown on the following Venn Diagram.


Venn Diagram:  set A = {1,3,4,5,9}





Set B is also composed of some (but not all) of the numbers in the Universal Set “U”.

set B ={2,4,6,7,8}

Set B is also a proper subset (math symbol ⊂)of the universal set “U”.

Set B ⊂Universal Set “U”

Or

B ⊂ U


This is shown on the following Venn Diagram.


Venn Diagram:  set B ={2,4,6,7,8}



Both sets A and B contain different elements (numbers), except for one common element: the number 4.

This is shown in the following Venn Diagram.


This common element (the number 4) is where set A and set B overlap.

The overlap is called the “intersection” (math symbol ∩) of set A and set B.

A ∩ B = {4}

Venn Diagram:  A ∩ B = {4}




Final Answer

     What is A ∩ B (the intersection of set A and set B)?

          A ∩ B = {4}




Thanks for writing.
