Help me out please!

Hey, guys. We all know there's a question of sets in live questions. But I don't know the concept of sets and I even searched on the net to understand it, but failed. So, can you please explain me the essential aspects of sets so that I can solve that particular question? Thanks in advance! Here is the question- The set S has 6 elements. How many subsets of S are there with at least 2 elements?

PS- My intention is not wrong, just to explore and understand. Please help me out!

A set can be any grouping of numbers defined in a lot of ways. In this case the set is 6 numbers. How many different ways can you assemble pairs of these 6 numbers? Each of these pairs are in themselves sets of the original set so they are subsets. Understand? Matt Stankey · 4 years, 3 months ago

@Matt Stankey I mean, how many different ways can you arrange these 6 elements in groups of 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6? Matt Stankey · 4 years, 3 months ago
