# Let A = {1, 2, 4, 5} B = {2, 3, 5, 6} C = {4, 5, 6, 7}. Verify the following identities:

A ∩ (B – C) = (A ∩ B) – (A ∩ C)

Answer :

B–C is defined as {x ϵ B : x ∉ C}

B = {2, 3, 5, 6}

C = {4, 5, 6, 7}

B–C = {2, 3}

(A ∩ (B – C)) = {x:x ϵ A and x ϵ (B – C)}

= {2}

R.H.S:

(A ∩ B) = {x:x ϵ A and x ϵ B}

= {2, 5}

(A ∩ C) = {x:x ϵ A and x ϵ C}

= {4, 5}

(A ∩ B) – (A ∩ C) is defined as {x ϵ (A ∩ B) : x ∉ (A ∩ C)}

= {2}.

Hence Verified.

Using properties of sets prove the statements given

For all sets A and B, (A ∪ B) – B = A – B

Mathematics - ExemplarIf A and B are two sets such that n(A) = 23, n(b) = 37 and n(A – B) = 8 then find n(A ∪ B).

Hint n(A) = n(A – B) + n(A ∩ B) n(A ∩ B) = (23 – 8) = 15.
