What is the number of ordered pairs \((A, B)\) where \(A\) and \(B\) are subsets of \(\{1, 2, \ldots, 5\}\) such that neither \(A \subseteq B\) nor \(B \subseteq A\) ?

why should it be 2^10......i think it should be ${2^5 \choose 2}*2$ – Abhishek Bakshi · 2 years, 3 months ago

Using rule of product, \(A\) has \(2^5\) choices, and even \(B\) has \(2^5\) choices, so total no. of ordered pairs = \(2^5 \times 2^5 = 2^{10}\)Log in to reply

As @ww margera said, we can use principle of inclusion and exclusion.

\[ \text{Answer} = \text{total no. of ordered pairs} - (|A \subseteq B |+ |B \subseteq A|) + |A = B| \]

where \(|x|\) is no. of ordered pairs \((A, B)\) satifying condition \(x\).

\[ \text{Answer}= 2^{10} - ( 3^5 + 3^5) + 2^5 = \boxed{570}\] – Pranshu Gaba · 2 years, 3 months ago

@ww margera. actually you permuted it...... {1,2} is Same as {2,1} – Vatsal Shah · 2 years, 3 months ago

should be 1024 - 243 - 243 + 32 = 570 – Ww Margera · 2 years, 3 months ago

Ordered pairs right? So the two should not be the same...Log in to reply

How many elements can A or B can have? Only 1 or more than one

If only 1 element ans \(\to\) 20

Otherwise(counting every possibility) ans \(\to\) 47 – Krishna Sharma · 2 years, 3 months ago

Since \(A\) and \(B\) are subsets of \(\{1, 2, 3, 4, 5\}\), they can have from 0 to 5 elements.Log in to reply

is it 30??? – Nitish Deshpande · 2 years, 3 months ago
