Basic Concepts of Set Theory

Set
A set is a well-defined collection of objects or elements. Each element in a set is unique.
Usually set is denoted by a capital letters e.g. A, B,, X, Y etc. and the elements are
enclosed in { } brackets, denoted by small letters e.g. a, b,.., x, y etc.
Example:
Empty Set/ Void Set/ Null Set
A set may contain no elements and denoted by (phi) | .
Example:

Important Points:
Let the set A whose n(A) = 0 or natural number is known as finite set, where n(A) is number
of elements in the set, else set A is infinite set.
Subset of a Set
A set A is said to be subset of set B if each element of set A is also the element of set B.
_ e e . . i e A B ( x A x B ) .
If there is at least one element in B which does not belong to set A, then A is proper
subset of B i.e. c A B .

Example:
Equality of Sets
Set A and B is said to be equal if A B and B A _ _ i.e. both sets have same elements.

Union of sets ( collecting the elements of sets )
Union of two or more sets is the set of all elements that belongs to any of these sets. The
symbol for union of sets is ' ' .
