Set Operations

Familiarize yourself with the foundational notation, tools and concepts for the operations that are applied to sets.

Union and Intersection

         

Given the sets \(A = \{2, 20, 22, 5, 13\}\) and \(B = \{6, 9, 20, 12, 22\}\), what is the sum of all the elements in \(A \cup B\)?

You may first choose to read the summary page Set Notation.

Given the sets \(A = \{17, 29, 65, 1, 19\}\) and \(B = \{3, 9, 29, 101, 65\}\), what is the sum of all the elements in \(A \cap B\)?

Details and assumptions

You may first choose to read the summary page on Set Notation.

A survey of \(80\) students found that \(42\) of them are wearing red and \(34\) of them are wearing green. Furthermore, \(27\) of them are wearing neither red nor green. What is the number of students who are wearing red, green, or red and green?

If \[\begin{align} A &= \{x \mid x \text{ is any positive factor of } 52\} \\ B &= \{x \mid x \text{ is any positive factor of } 338\}, \end{align} \]

what is \(A \cap B?\)

Given the sets \[A=\{1,2,3,a,b\}, B=\{3,15,21\},\] if \(A \cup B=\{1,2,3,6,10,15,21\},\) what is the value of \(a+b?\)
