Thus, B = {2, 3}. 2 ∉ A and 3 ∉ A. Hence, A ≠ B. (ii) Letters in the word FOLLOW are F, O, L, W. Thus, A = {F, O, L, W} Letters in the word WOLF are W, O, L, F. Thus, B = {W, O, L, F} All elements of A are present in B and all elements of B are present in A. Hence, A = B. 6.

Miscellaneous Exercise1. Decide, among the following sets, which sets are subsets of one and another: A = { x : x ∈ R and x satisfy x^{2}  8x + 12 = 0 }, B = { 2, 4, 6 }, C = { 2, 4, 6, 8, . . . }, D = { 6 }. SOLUTION x^{2}  8x + 12 = 0 x^{2}  6x  2x + 12 = 0 x(x  6)  2(x  6) = 0 (x  6)(x  2) = 0 x = 6 and x = 2. Therefore, A = {2, 6}. Now, B = {2, 4, 6 }, C = {2, 4, 6, 8, . . . }, and D = {6}. Hence, we can conclude: D ⊂ A, D ⊂ B, D ⊂ C, A ⊂ B, A ⊂ C B ⊂ C 2. In each of the following, determine whether the statement is true or false. If it is true, prove it. If it is false, give an example.
SOLUTION (i) This statement is false. Let us assume that A = {1, 2, 3} and B = {{1, 2, 3}, 4} Here, 1 ∈ A and A ∈ B. However, 1 ∉ B. (ii) This statement is false. Let us assume that A = {1, 2}, B = {1, 2, 3} and C = {{1, 2, 3}, 4} Here, A ⊂ B and B ∈ C. However, A ∉ C. (iii) This statement is true. It is given that A ⊂ B and B ⊂ C. Therefore, For any element x of the set A: x ∈ A, then x ∈ B and x ∈ C. Thus, A ⊂ C. (iv) This statement is false. Let us assume that A = {1, 2}, B = {3, 4} and C = {1, 2, 3}. Here, A ⊄ B and B ⊄ C. However, A ⊂ C. (v) This statement is false. Let us assume that A = {1, 2, 3} and B = {4, 5, 6}. Here, 1 ∈ A and A ⊄ B. However, 1 ∉ B. (vi) This statement is true. It is given that A ⊂ B and x ∉ B. If x ∈ A is true, then x ∈ B is also true as A ⊂ B. But x ∉ B. Hence, x ∉ A. 3. Let A, B, and C be the sets such that A ∪ B = A ∪ C and A ∩ B = A ∩ C. Show that B = C. SOLUTION If x ∈ B for any element x, then x ∈ A ∪ B Since, A ∪ B = A ∪ C. Therefore, x ∈ A ∪ C This means that either set A or set C have x. If x ∈ A, then x ∈ A ∩ B as x ∈ B. Since, A ∩ B = A ∩ C. Therefore, x ∈ A ∩ C This means that set C has x. Since, x ∈ B and x ∈ C. Therefore, B ⊂ C. Similarly, C ⊂ B. Since, B ⊂ C and C ⊂ B. Hence, B = C. 4. Show that the following four conditions are equivalent : (i) A ⊂ B (ii) A  B = φ (iii) A ∪ B = B (iv) A ∩ B = A SOLUTION Equivalence in (i) and (ii): Let A ⊂ B be true. Now, let us assume that A  B ≠ φ. This means that, an element x exists such that x ∈ A and x ∉ B. But this is not possible as A ⊂ B, so every element in A has to be in B. Therefore, A  B = φ Hence, (i) and (ii) conditions are equivalent. Equivalence in (i) and (iii): Let A ⊂ B be true. We know that, B ⊂ A ∪ B. For any element x of the set A ∪ B, we have x ∈ A ∪ B So, x ∈ A or x ∈ B. I. If x ∈ A, then x ∈ B because A ⊂ B. So, A ∪ B ⊂ B II. If x ∈ B, then A ∪ B = B as B is the superset. Now, let us assume that A ∪ B = B. If x ∈ A, then x ∈ A ∪ B because clearly A ⊂ A ∪ B. and x ∈ B because A ∪ B = B. Therefore, A ⊂ B. Hence, (i) and (iii) conditions are equivalent. Equivalence in (i) and (iv): Let A ⊂ B be true. A ∩ B ⊂ A If x ∈ A then x ∈ B as A ⊂ B. So, x ∈ A ∩ B This means that A ⊂ A ∩ B. Since, A ∩ B ⊂ A and A ⊂ A ∩ B. Therefore, A = A ∩ B. Now, let us assume that A ∩ B = B. If x ∈ A, then x ∈ A ∩ B So, x is an element of A as well as B. x ∈ A and x ∈ B. Therefore, A ⊂ B. Hence, (i) and (iv) conditions are equivalent. Hence, (i), (ii), (iii), and (iv) conditions are all equivalent. 5. Show that if A ⊂ B, then C  B ⊂ C  A. SOLUTION Let there be an element x in the set C  B. This means that x ∈ C and x ∉ B. Since, A ⊂ B. Therefore, x ∈ C and x ∉ A. This implies that x ∈ C  A. Hence, C  B ⊂ C  A. 6. Assume that P ( A ) = P ( B ). Show that A = B. SOLUTION Let there be an element x in the set A. We know that P (A) contains all the subsets of set A. So, A ∈ P (A). P (A) = P (B) Thus, A ∈ P (B) Let there be a subset C of the set B such that x ∈ C. We know that P (B) contains all the subsets of set B. So, C ∈ P (B). This implies that C ⊂ B. Therefore, x ∈ B which further implies that A ⊂ B. Similarly, we can prove that B ⊂ A. Hence, A = B. 7. Is it true that for any sets A and B, P ( A ) ∪ P ( B ) = P ( A ∪ B )? Justify your answer. SOLUTION The given statement is false for any sets A and B. P (A) ∪ P (B) ≠ P (A ∪ B) Let us assume that there are two sets A = {1, 2, 3} and B = {3, 4, 5}. A ∪ B = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} P (A) = {φ, {1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 2}, {2, 3}, {1, 3}, {1, 2, 3}} P (B) = {, {3}, {4}, {5}, {3, 4}, {4, 5}, {3, 5}, {3, 4, 5}} LHS = P (A) ∪ P (B) = {φ, {1}, {2}, {3}, {4}, {5}, {1, 2}, {2, 3}, {1, 3}, {3, 4}, {4, 5}, {3, 5}, {1, 2, 3}, {3, 4, 5}} RHS = P (A ∪ B) = {φ, {1}, {2}, {3}, {4}, {5}, {1, 2}, {2, 3}, {3, 4}, {4, 5}, {1, 3}, {1, 4}, {1, 5}, {2, 4}, {2, 5}, {3, 5}, {1, 2, 3}, {2, 3, 4}, {3, 4, 5}, {1, 2, 4}, {1, 2, 5}, {1, 3, 4}, {1, 3, 5}, {1, 4, 5}, {2, 3, 5}, {2, 4, 5}, {1, 2, 3, 4}, {2, 3, 4, 5}, {1, 2, 3, 5}, {1, 3, 4, 5}, {1, 2, 4, 5}, {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}} LHS ≠ RHS. Hence, proved that the given statement is not true. 8. Show that for any sets A and B, A = ( A ∩ B ) ∪ ( A  B ) and A ∪ ( B  A ) = ( A ∪ B ) SOLUTION Let there be an element x such that x ∈ A. CASE I: If x ∈ A ∩ B Then, x ∈ (A ∩ B) ⊂ (A ∪ B) ∪ (A  B) CASE II: If x ∉ A ∩ B Then, Either x ∉ A or x ∉ B. But we know that x ∈ A. Thus, x ∉ B x ∉ (A  B) ⊂ (A ∪ B) ∪ (A  B) Therefore, A ⊂ (A ∩ B) ∪ (A  B) Since, A ∩ B ⊂ A and (A  B) ⊂ A. Then, (A ∩ B) ∪ (A  B) ⊂ A From the above two obtained statements, we can conclude that A = (A ∩ B) ∪ (A  B) The first statement has been proven. Now, let us assume that x ∈ A ∪ (B  A). This implies that x ∈ A or x ∈ (B  A) x ∈ A or [x ∈ B and x ∉ A] x ∈ B ∪ A Therefore, A ∪ (B  A) ⊂ (A ∪ B) Let there be an element y such that y ∈ A ∪ B y ∈ A or y ∈ B y ∈ A or [y ∈ B and y ∉ A] y ∈ A ∪ (B  A) Therefore, A ∪ B ⊂ A ∪ (B  A) From the above two obtained statements, we can conclude that A ∪ (B  A) = (A ∪ B) Hence, both the required statements have been proven. 9. Using properties of sets, show that (i) A ∪ ( A ∩ B ) = A (ii) A ∩ ( A ∪ B ) = A SOLUTION (i) It is obvious that A ⊂ A. Then, A ∩ B ⊂ A A ∪ (A ∩ B) ⊂ A Also, A ⊂ A ∪ (A ∩ B) Therefore, A = A ∪ (A ∩ B) (ii) A ∩ (A ∪ B) = (A ∩ A) ∪ (A ∩ B) = A ∪ (A ∩ B) = A Therefore, A = A ∪ (A ∩ B) 10. Show that A ∩ B = A ∩ C need not imply B = C. SOLUTION Let us assume that there are three sets A = {1, 2}, B = {1, 3, 4} and C = {1, 5, 6}. Now, A ∩ B = {1} A ∩ C = {1} Therefore, A ∩ B = A ∩ C 3 and 4 ∈ B but 3 and 4 ∉ C. Hence, B ≠ C. 11. Let A and B be sets. If A ∩ X = B ∩ X = φ and A ∪ X = B ∪ X for some set X, show that A = B. (Hints A = A ∩ ( A ∪ X ) , B = B ∩ ( B ∪ X ) and use Distributive law ) SOLUTION To Prove: A = B Proof: A = A ∩ (A ∪ X) = A ∩ (B ∪ X) [A ∪ X = B ∪ X] A = (A ∩ B) ∪ (A ∩ X) (Using the Distributive law) A = (A ∩ B) ∪ Φ [A ∩ X = Φ] A = A ∩ B ... (I) Now, B = B ∩ (B ∪ X) B = B ∩ (A ∪ X) [A ∪ X = B ∪ X] B = (B ∩ A) ∪ (B ∩ X) (Using the Distributive law) B = (B ∩ A) ∪ Φ [B ∩ X = Φ] B = A ∩ B ... (II) From Equations (I) and (II) A = B Hence, proved. 12. Find sets A, B and C such that A ∩ B, B ∩ C and A ∩ C are nonempty sets and A ∩ B ∩ C = φ. SOLUTION Let there be three sets A = {1, 2}, B = {2, 3}, and C = {1, 3}. A ∩ B = {2} B ∩ C = {3} A ∩ C = {1} A ∩ B ∩ C = φ Therefore, sets A = {1, 2}, B = {2, 3} and C = {1, 3} are example of three sets such that A ∩ B, B ∩ C and A ∩ C are nonempty sets and A ∩ B ∩ C = φ. 13. In a survey of 600 students in a school, 150 students were found to be taking tea and 225 taking coffee, 100 were taking both tea and coffee. Find how many students were taking neither tea nor coffee? SOLUTION Let the set of students who were taking tea be T and let the set of students who were taking coffee be C. The 600 students who took part in the survey form the universal set denoted by U. n (U) = 600 n (T) = 150 n (C) = 225 n (T ∩ C) = 100 We know that n (T ∪ C) = n (T) + n (C)  n (T ∩ C) = 150 + 225  100 n (T ∪ C) = 275 Number of students who are not taking either tea or coffee = Total number of students  Number of students who are taking either tea or coffee n (T' ∩ C')= n (U)  n (T ∪ C) = 600  275 = 325 Hence, number of students who take neither tea nor coffee = 325 14. In a group of students, 100 students know Hindi, 50 know English and 25 know both. Each of the students knows either Hindi or English. How many students are there in the group? SOLUTION Let the set with all students in the group be U. Let the set of students who know Hindi be X and those who know English be Y. n (X) = 100 n (Y) = 50 n (X ∩ Y) = 25 n (X ∪ Y) = n (U) (Given) We know that n (X ∪ Y) = n (X) + n (Y)  n (X ∩ Y) = 100 + 50  25 = 125 Hence, there were a total of 125 students in the group. 15. In a survey of 60 people, it was found that 25 people read newspaper H, 26 read newspaper T, 26 read newspaper I, 9 read both H and I, 11 read both H and T, 8 read both T and I, 3 read all three newspapers. Find:
SOLUTION Let the set of people who read newspaper H be A, those who read T be B and those who read I be C. n (A) = 25 n (B) = 26 n (C) = 26 n (A ∩ C) = 9 n (B ∩ C) = 8 n (A ∩ B) = 11 n (A ∩ B ∩ C) = 3 (i) We know that n (A ∪ B ∪ C) = n (A) + n (B) + n (C)  n (A ∩ B)  n (B ∩ C)  n (A ∩ C) + n (A ∩ B ∩ C) = 25 + 26 + 26  9  8  11 + 3 = 52 Hence, there are 52 people who read at least one newspaper. (ii) n (A ∩ B) = People who read H and T only + People who read all three n (B ∩ C) = People who read H and I only + People who read all three n (A ∩ C) = People who read I and T only + People who read all three Add all three n (A ∩ B) + n (B ∩ C) + n (A ∩ C) = Number of people who read more than one newspaper + 2 × n (A ∩ B ∩ C) 11 + 8 + 9 = Number of people who read more than one newspaper + 6 Number of people who read more than one newspaper = 22 Number of people who read only one newspaper = 52  22 = 30 Hence, 30 people read exactly one newspaper. 16. In a survey it was found that 21 people liked product A, 26 liked product B and 29 liked product C. If 14 people liked products A and B, 12 people liked products C and A, 14 people liked products B and C and 8 liked all the three products. Find how many liked product C only. SOLUTION n (A) = 21 n (B) = 26 n (C) = 29 n (A ∩ B) = 14 n(C ∩ A) = 12 n (B ∩ C) = 14 n (A ∩ B ∩ C) = 8 We need to draw the venn diagram. Number of people who only like product C = 29  (4 + 8 + 6) = 11 Hence, 11 people like product C only.
