Exercise 1.4

Question 1:

Find the union of each of the following pairs of sets:

1. X = {1, 3, 5} Y = {1, 2, 3}
2. A = {a, e, i, o, u} B = {a, b, c}
3. A = {x: x is a natural number and multiple of 3} B = {x: x is a natural number less than 6}
4. A = {x: x is a natural number and 1 < x ≤ 6}

B = {x: x is a natural number and 6 < x < 10}

(v) A = {1, 2, 3}, B = Φ

1. X = {1, 3, 5} Y = {1, 2, 3} X∪ Y= {1, 2, 3, 5}
2. A = {a, e, i, o, u} B = {a, b, c} A∪ B = {a, b, c, e, i, o, u}

(iii) A = {x: x is a natural number and multiple of 3} = {3, 6, 9 …} As B = {x: x is a natural number less than 6} = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} A ∪ B = {1, 2, 4, 5, 3, 6, 9, 12 …}

∴ A ∪ B = {x: x = 1, 2, 4, 5 or a multiple of 3}

A∪ B = {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9}

∴ A∪ B = {x: x ∈ N and 1 < x < 10}

(v) A = {1, 2, 3}, B = Φ A∪ B = {1, 2, 3}

Question 2:

Let A = {a, b}, B = {a, b, c}. Is A ⊂ B? What is A ∪ B?
