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 Thanks for writing.
