Presentation Transcript

• A ~ Set of Students Studying Math

• B ~ Set of Students Studying History

• A∩B ~ The intersection of sets A and B.

• (Students who study Math and History)

S

• Disjoint Sets

e.g. if C is the set of students studying grade 10 history and A is the set of students studying grade 12 math there are no grade 10 history students who study grade 12 math.

Union of Sets elements in either A or B or both

• A U B = {set of element in A or B (or both)}

• If n(A UB) = n(A) + n(B) the sets are disjoint.

The Union of Sets Generally elements in either A or B or both

• n( A UB) = n( A) + n( B) – n( A∩B )

• The number of members of set A or B

n( A UB) = n( A) + n( B) – n( A elements in either A or B or both∩B )

• e.g. A = set of DM Students

B = set of P.E. Students

There are 28 DM students and 25 PE students. 12 are in both. How many students in total are in DM or PE (or both)?

n(A)=28, n(B)=25, n( A∩B )=12

n( A UB) = n( A) + n( B) – n( A∩B )

=28 + 25 – 12

= 41

Example 2 elements in either A or B or both

Of the 120 students in a class, 30 speak Chinese, 50 speak Spanish, 75 speak French, 12 speak Spanish and Chinese, 30 speak Spanish and French, and 15 speak Chinese and French. Seven students speak all three languages. How many students speaks none of these languages?

7 speak all 3 elements in either A or B or both
