Chapter 1.1 Overview This chapter deals with the concept of a set, operations on sets.Concept of sets will be useful in studying the relations and functions. 1.1.1 Set and their representations A set is a well-defined collection of objects. There are two methods of representing a set (i) Roaster or tabular form (ii) Set builder form 1.1.2 The empty set A set which does not contain any element is called the empty set or the void set or null set and is denoted by { } or φ. 1.1.3 Finite and infinite sets A set which consists of a finite number of elements is called a finite set otherwise, the set is called an infinite set. 1.1.4 Subsets A set A is said to be a subset of set B if every element of A is also an element of B. In symbols we write A ⊂ B if a ∈ A ⇒ a ∈ B. We denote set of real numbers by R set of natural numbers by N set of integers by Z set of rational numbers by Q set of irrational numbers by T We observe that N ⊂ Z ⊂ Q ⊂ R, T ⊂ R, Q ⊄ T, N ⊄ T 1.1.5 Equal sets Given two sets A and B, if every elements of A is also an element of B and if every element of B is also an element of A, then the sets A and B are said to be equal. The two equal sets will have exactly the same elements. 1.1.6 Intervals as subsets of R Let a, b ∈ R and a < b. Then (a) An open interval denoted by (a, b) is the set of real numbers {x : a < x < b} (b) A closed interval denoted by [a, b] is the set of real numbers {x : a ≤ x ≤ b) (c) Intervals closed at one end and open at the other are given by [a, b) = {x : a ≤ x < b} (a, b] = {x : a < x ≤ b} 1.1.7 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 the number of elements in A = n , i.e., n(A) = n, then the number of elements in P(A) = 2n . 1.1.8 Universal set This is a basic set; in a particular context whose elements and subsets are relevant to that particular context. For example, for the set of vowels in English alphabet, the universal set can be the set of all alphabets in English. Universal set is denoted by U. 1.1.9 Venn diagrams Venn Diagrams are the diagrams which represent the relationship between sets. For example, the set of natural numbers is a subset of set of whole numbers which is a subset of integers. We can represent this relationship through Venn diagram in the following way. 1.1.10 Operations on sets Union of Sets : The union of any two given sets A and B is the set C which consists of all those elements which are either in A or in B. In symbols, we write C = A ∪ B = {x | x ∈A or x ∈B} Some properties of the operation of union. (i) A ∪ B = B ∪ A (ii) (A ∪ B) ∪ C = A ∪ (B ∪ C) (iii) A ∪ φ = A (iv) A ∪ A = A (v) U ∪ A = U Intersection of sets: The intersection of two sets A and B is the set which consists of all those elements which belong to both A and B. Symbolically, we write A ∩ B = {x : x ∈ A and x ∈ B}. SETSWhen A ∩ B = φ, then A and B are called disjoint sets. Some properties of the operation of intersection (i) A ∩ B = B ∩ A (ii) (A ∩ B) ∩ C = A ∩ (B ∩ C) (iii) φ ∩ A = φ ; U ∩ A =A (iv) A ∩ A = A (v) A ∩ (B ∪ C) = (A ∩ B) ∪ (A ∩ C) (vi) A ∪ (B ∩ C) = (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C) Difference of sets The difference of two sets A and B, denoted by A – B is defined as set of elements which belong to A but not to B. We write A – B ={x : x ∈ A and x ∉ B} also, B –A={ x : x ∈ B and x ∉A} Complement of a set Let U be the universal set and A a subset of U. Then the complement of A is the set of all elements of U which are not the elements of A. Symbolically, we write A′ = {x : x ∈ U and x ∉ A}. Also A′ = U – A Some properties of complement of sets (i) Law of complements: (a) A ∪ A′ = U (b)A ∩ A′ = φ (ii) De Morgan’s law (a) (A ∪ B)′ = A′∩ B′ (b) (A ∩ B)′ = A′∪ B′ (iii) (A′ )′ = A (iv) U′ = φ and φ′ = U 1.1.11 Formulae to solve practical problems on union and intersection of two sets Let A, B and C be any finite sets. Then (a) n (A ∪ B) = n (A) + n (B) – n (A ∩ B) (b) If (A ∩ B) = φ, then n (A ∪ B) = n (A) + n (B) (c) n (A ∪ B ∪ C) = n (A) + n (B) + n (C) – n (A ∩ B) – n (A ∩ C) – n (B ∩ C) + n (A ∩ B ∩ C) 1.2 Solved Examples Short Answer Type Example 1 Write the following sets in the roaster form. (i) A = {x | x is a positive integer less than 10 and 2x – 1 is an odd number} (ii) C = {x : x2 + 7x – 8 = 0, x ∈ R} Solution (i) 2x – 1 is always an odd number for all positive integral values of x. In particular, 2x – 1 is an odd number for x = 1, 2, ... , 9. Thus, A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9}. (ii) x2 + 7x – 8 = 0 or (x + 8) (x – 1) = 0 giving x = – 8 or x = 1 Thus, C = {– 8, 1} Example 2 State which of the following statements are true and which are false. Justify your answer. (i) 37 ∉ {x | x has exactly two positive factors} (ii) 28 ∈ {y | the sum of the all positive factors of y is 2y} (iii) 7,747 ∈ {t | t is a multiple of 37} Solution (i) False Since, 37 has exactly two positive factors, 1 and 37, 37 belongs to the set. (ii) True Since, the sum of positive factors of 28 = 1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14 + 28 = 56 = 2(28) (iii) False 7,747 is not a multiple of 37. Example 3 If X and Y are subsets of the universal set U, then show that (i) Y ⊂ X ∪ Y (ii) X ∩ Y ⊂ X (iii) X ⊂ Y ⇒ X ∩ Y = X Solution (i) X ∪ Y = {x | x ∈ X or x ∈ Y} Thus x ∈ Y ⇒ x ∈ X ∪ Y Hence, Y ⊂ X ∪ Y SETS(ii) X ∩ Y = {x | x ∈ X and x ∈ Y} Thus x ∈ X ∩ Y ⇒ x ∈ X Hence X ∩ Y ⊂ X (iii) Note that x ∈ X ∩ Y ⇒ x ∈ X Thus X ∩ Y ⊂ X Also, since X ⊂ Y, x ∈ X ⇒ x ∈ Y ⇒ x ∈ X ∩ Y so that X ⊂ X ∩ Y Hence the result X = X ∩ Y follows. Example 4 Given that N = {1, 2, 3, ..., 100}, then (i) Write the subset A of N, whose element are odd numbers. (ii) Write the subset B of N, whose element are represented by x + 2, where x ∈ N. Solution (i) A = {x | x ∈ N and x is odd}= {1, 3, 5, 7, ..., 99} (ii) B = {y | y = x + 2, x ∈ N} So, for 1 ∈ N, y = 1 + 2 = 3 2 ∈ N, y = 2 + 2 = 4, and so on. Therefore, B = {3, 4, 5, 6, ... , 100} Example 5 Given that E = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}. If n represents any member of E, then, write the following sets containing all numbers represented by (i) n + 1 (ii) n 2 Solution Given E = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10} (i) Let A = {x | x = n + 1, n ∈ E} Thus, for 2 ∈ E, x = 3 4 ∈ E, x = 5, and so on. Therefore, A = {3, 5, 7, 9, 11}. (ii) Let B = {x | x = n2, n ∈ E} So, for 2 ∈ E, x = (2)2 = 4, 4 ∈ E, x = (4)2 = 16, 6 ∈ E, x = (6)2 = 36, and so on. Hence, B = {4, 16, 36, 64, 100} Example 6 Let X = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}. If n represent any member of X, express the following as sets: (i) n ∈ X but 2n ∉ X (ii) n + 5 = 8 (iii) n is greater than 4. Solution (i) For X = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}, it is the given that n ∈ X, but 2n ∉ X. Let, A = {x | x ∈ X and 2x ∉ X} Now, 1 ∉ A as 2.1 = 2 ∈ X 2 ∉ A as 2.2 = 4 ∈ X 3 ∉ A as 2.3 = 6 ∈ X But 4 ∈ A as 2.4 = 8 ∉ X 5 ∈ A as 2.5 = 10 ∉ X 6 ∈ A as 2.6 = 12 ∉ X So, A = {4, 5, 6} (ii) Let B = {x | x ∈ X and x + 5 = 8} Here, B = {3} as x = 3 ∈ X and 3 + 5 = 8 and there is no other element belonging to X such that x + 5 =8. (iii) Let C = {x | x ∈ X, x > 4} Therefore, C = {5, 6} Example 7 Draw the Venn diagrams to illustrate the followoing relationship among sets E, M and U, where E is the set of students studying English in a school, M is the set of students studying Mathematics in the same school, U is the set of all students in that school. (i) All the students who study Mathematics study English, but some students who study English do not study Mathematics. (ii) There is no student who studies both Mathematics and English. (iii) Some of the students study Mathematics but do not study English, some study English but do not study Mathematics, and some study both. (iv) Not all students study Mathematics, but every students studying English studies Mathematics. Solution (i) Since all of the students who study mathematics study English, but some students who study English do not study Mathematics. Therefore, M ⊂ E ⊂ U Thus the Venn Diagram is Fig 1.4 SETS(ii) Since there is no student who study both English and Mathematics Hence, E ∩ M = φ. Fig 1.5 (iii) Since there are some students who study both English and Mathematics, some English only and some Mathematics only. Thus, the Venn Diagram is Fig 1.6 (iv) Since every student studying English studiesMathematics. Hence, E ⊂ M ⊂ U Fig 1.7 Example 8 For all sets A, B and C Is (A ∩ B) ∪ C = A ∩ (B ∪ C)? Justify your statement. Solution No. consider the following sets A, B and C : A = {1, 2, 3} B = {2, 3, 5} C = {4, 5, 6} Now (A ∩ B) ∪ C = ({1, 2, 3} ∩ {2, 3, 5}) ∪ {4, 5, 6} = {2, 3} ∪ {4, 5, 6} = {2, 3, 4, 5, 6} And A ∩ (B ∪ C) = {1, 2, 3} ∩ [{2, 3, 5} ∪ {4, 5, 6} = {1, 2, 3} ∩ {2, 3, 4, 5, 6} = {2, 3} Therefore, (A ∩ B) ∪ C ≠ A ∩ (B ∪ C) Example 9 Use the properties of sets to prove that for all the sets A and B A – (A ∩ B) = A – B Solution We have A – (A ∩ B) = A ∩ (A ∩ B)′ (since A – B = A ∩ B′) =A ∩ (A′∪ B′) [by De Morgan’s law) =(A∩ A′) ∪ (A ∩ B′) [by distributive law] = φ ∪ (A ∩ B′) =A ∩ B′ = A – B Long AnswerType Example 10 For all sets A, B and C Is (A – B) ∩ (C – B) = (A ∩ C) – B? Justify your answer. Solution Yes Let x ∈ (A – B) ∩ (C – B) ⇒ x ∈ A – B and x ∈ C – B ⇒ (x ∈ A and x ∉ B) and (x ∈ C and x ∉ B) ⇒ (x ∈ A and x ∈ C) and x ∉ B ⇒ (x ∈ A ∩ C) and x ∉ B ⇒ x ∈ (A ∩ C) – B So (A – B) ∩ (C – B) ⊂ (A ∩ C) – B ... (1) Now, conversely SETSLet y ∈ (A ∩ C) – B ⇒ y ∈ (A ∩ C) and y ∉ B ⇒ (y ∈ A and y ∈ C) and (y ∉ B) ⇒ (y ∈ A and y ∉ B) and (y ∈ C and y ∉ B) ⇒ y ∈ (A – B) and y ∈ (C – B) ⇒ y ∈ (A – B) ∩ (C – B) So (A ∩ C) – B ⊂ (A – B) ∩ (C – B) ... (2) From (1) and (2), (A – B) ∩ (C – B) = (A ∩ C) – B Example 11 Let A, B and C be sets. Then show that A ∪ (B ∩ C) = (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C) Solution We first show that A ∪ (B ∩ C) ⊂ (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C) Let x ∈ A ∪ (B ∩ C). Then x ∈ A or x ∈ B ∩ C ⇒ x ∈ A or (x ∈ B and x ∈ C) ⇒ (x ∈ A or x ∈ B) and (x ∈ A or x ∈ C) ⇒ (x ∈ A ∪ B)and (x ∈ A ∪ C) ⇒ x ∈ (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C) Thus, A ∪ (B ∩ C) ⊂ (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C) ... (1) Now we will show that (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C) ⊂ (A ∪ C) Let x ∈ (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C) ⇒ x ∈ A ∪ B and x ∈ A ∪ C ⇒ (x ∈ A or x ∈ B) and (x ∈ A or x ∈ C) ⇒ x ∈ A or (x ∈ B and x ∈ C) ⇒ x ∈ A or (x ∈ B ∩ C) ⇒ x ∈ A ∪ (B ∩ C) Thus, (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C) ⊂ A ∪ (B ∩ C) ... (2) So, from (1) and (2), we have A ∩ (B ∪ C) = (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C) Example 12 Let P be the set of prime numbers and let S = {t | 2t – 1 is a prime}. Prove that S ⊂ P. Solution Now the equivalent contrapositive statement of x ∈ S ⇒ x ∈ P is x ∉ P ⇒ x ∉ S. Now, we will prove the above contrapositive statement by contradiction method Let x ∉ P ⇒ x is a composite number Let us now assume that x ∈ S ⇒ 2x – 1 = m (where m is a prime number) ⇒ 2x = m + 1 Which is not true for all composite number, say for x = 4 because 24 = 16 which can not be equal to the sum of any prime number m and 1. Thus, we arrive at a contradiction ⇒ x ∉ S. Thus, when x ∉ P, we arrive at x ∉ S So S ⊂ P. Example 13 From 50 students taking examinations in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, each of the student has passed in at least one of the subject, 37 passed Mathematics, 24 Physics and 43 Chemistry. At most 19 passed Mathematics and Physics, at most 29 Mathematics and Chemistry and at most 20 Physics and Chemistry. What is the largest possible number that could have passed all three examination? Solution Let M be the set of students passing in Mathematics P be the set of students passing in Physics C be the set of students passing in Chemistry Now, n(M ∪ P ∪ C) = 50, n(M) = 37, n(P) = 24, n(C) = 43 n(M ∩ P) ≤ 19, n(M ∩ C) ≤ 29, n(P ∩ C) ≤ 20 (Given) n(M ∪ P ∪ C) = n(M) + n(P) + n(C) – n(M ∩ P) – n(M ∩ C) – n(P ∩ C) + n(M ∩ P ∩ C) ≤ 50 ⇒ 37 + 24 + 43 – 19 – 29 – 20 + n(M ∩ P ∩ C) ≤ 50 ⇒ n(M ∩ P ∩ C) ≤ 50 – 36 ⇒ n(M ∩ P ∩ C) ≤ 14 Thus, the largest possible number that could have passed all the three examinations is 14. Objective Type Questions Choose the correct answer from the given four options in each of the Examples 14 to 16 : (M.C.Q.) SETS 11 Example 14 Each set Xr contains 5 elements and each set Yr contains 2 elements 20 n and ∪Xr ==S ∪Yr . If each element of S belong to exactly 10 of the X’s and to r r =1 r=1 exactly 4 of the Yr ’s, then n is (A) 10 (B) 20 (C) 100 (D) 50 Solution The correct answer is (B) 20 Since, n(Xr) = 5, ∪Xr =S , we get n(S) = 100 r =1 But each element of S belong to exactly 10 of the Xr ’s 100 So, =10 are the number of distinct elements in S. 10 Also each element of S belong to exactly 4 of the Y’ s and each Y contain 2 elements. If S has n number of Y in it. Then rrr2n =10 4 which gives n =20 Example 15 Two finite sets have m and n elements respectively. The total number of subsets of first set is 56 more than the total number of subsets of the second set. The values of m and n respectively are. (A) 7, 6 (B) 5, 1 (C) 6, 3 (D) 8, 7 Solution The correct answer is (C). Since, let A and B be such sets, i.e., n (A) = m, n (B) = n So n (P(A)) = 2m, n (P(B)) = 2n Thus n (P(A)) – n (P(B)) = 56, i.e., 2m – 2n = 56 ⇒ 2n (2m – n – 1) = 23 7 ⇒ n =3 , 2m – n – 1 = 7 ⇒ m =6 Example 16 The set (A ∪ B ∪ C) ∩ (A ∩ B′∩ C′)′ ∩ C′ is equal to (A) B ∩ C′ (B) A ∩ C (C) B ∪ C′ (D) A ∩ C′ Solution The correct choice is (A). Since (A ∪ B ∪ C) ∩ (A ∩ B′ ∩ C′)′∩ C′ = (A ∪ (B ∪ C)) ∩ (A′∪ (B ∪ C)) ∩ C′ =(A ∩ A′) ∪ (B ∪ C) ∩ C′ = φ∪ (B ∪ C) ∩ C′ =B ∩ C′ ∪ φ = B ∩ C′ Fill in the blanks in Examples 17 and 18 : Example 17 If A and B are two finite sets, then n(A) + n(B) is equal to ___________ Solution Since n(A ∪ B) = n (A) + n (B) – n (A ∩ B) So n(A) + n (B) = n (A ∪ B) + n (A ∩ B) Example 18 If A is a finite set containing n element, then number of subsets of A is Solution 2n State true or false for the following statements given in Examples 19 and 20. Example 19 Let R and S be the sets defined as follows: R = {x ∈ Z | x is divisible by 2} S = {y ∈ Z | y is divisible by 3} then R ∩ S = φ Solution False Since 6 is divisible by both 3 and 2. Thus R ∩ S ≠φ Example 20 Q ∩ R = Q, where Q is the set of rational numbers and R is the set of real numbers. Solution True Since Q ⊂ R So Q ∩ R = QShort AnswerType 1.
