Answer:

If I understand your problem correctly, it can be represented by the Venn Diagram which is shown on the following link:

set P = {r, s, o, e}

set Q = {q, u, t, o, e}

P ∩ Q means the INTERSECTION of sets P and Q
The intersection of P and Q is shown on the Venn Diagram as the overlap of circles P and Q.

It is the green area shown on the Venn Diagram.

The INTERSECTION of the two circles on the Venn Diagram shows the COMMON ELEMENTS contained in both set P and set Q: {o, e}.

P ∩ Q = {o, e}



P ∪ Q means the UNION of sets P and Q

The union of P and Q is shown on the Venn Diagram as the combination of all the colored areas (red + green + blue).

The UNION of sets is the COMBINATION of ALL the ELEMENTS contained in set P and set Q: {r, s, o, e, q, u, t}.

P ∪ Q = {r, s, o, e, q, u, t}

--------------------------------------------

To type the ∩ and ∪ symbols on your keyboard, hold down the “right” ALT key, type the code, then release the “right” ALT key:

∩, intersection, 8745

∪, union, 8746
