# Review Of Basic Concept Of Set

TOPIC: SETS

• Idea of a set, set notations and applications.
• Disjoint sets , Venn diagram

A. IDEA OF SET, NOTATIONS, APPLICATIONS.

Definitions:

A set can be defined as a group or a collection of well defined objects or numbers e.g collection of books, cooking utensils.

A set is denoted by capital letters such as P, Q, and R e.t.c while small letters are used to denote the elements e.g. a, b, c

Elements of a set: These are the elements or members of a given set. The elements are separated by commas and enclosed by a curly bracket {}

e.g M ={ 1, 3 ,5, 7, 11}, 1  is an element of M.

Example: Write down the elements in each of the following sets.

A = {Odd numbers from 1 to 21}

F = {factors of 30}

M = {Multiples of 4 up to 40}

Solution:

A  = { 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21}

F = {1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30}

M = {4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40}
