We sometimes use Venn diagrams to visually represent the relationship between two or more sets. The diagram is drawn with a rectangle that represents the universal set, or the set of all elements under consideration. We then draw circles to represent the various subsets of the universal set.
Test Objectives:•Demonstrate the ability to create a Venn diagram
•Demonstrate the ability to visually find the union of two or more sets
•Demonstrate the ability to visually find the intersection of two or more sets
Sets II Test:
#1:
Instructions: Determine if each statement is true or false.
U = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7}
A = {1,6,7} : B = {3,5,7}
a) A ∩ B = {5}
b) A ∪ B = {1,6,7,5,3}
c) A' = {5,3,4}
d) B' = {1}
e) B ⊂ A
#2:
Instructions: Determine if each statement is true or false.
U = {George, Juan, Veronica, Sam, Tim, Charlie, Larry}
A = {George, Juan} : B = {Veronica, Tim} : C = {Sam, Tim}
a) A ∩ B = ∅
b) A ∪ B = {Veronica}
c) B ∩ C = {Tim}
d) C' = {Veronica, George, Juan}
e) A ∪ C = {George, Juan, Sam}
f) B ∪ C = {Veronica, Tim, Sam}
#3:

#4:
Instructions: Draw a Venn diagram and determine if each statement is true or false.
U = {a,b,d,e,l,q,t,z}
A = {a,b,d} : B = {e,l,q} : C = {b}
a) A ∩ B = ∅

d) true
e) true
f) true
Solution:
Your answer may vary: Let A = {1,2,3} and B = {3,4,5}
a) A ∩ B = {3} : The intersection of two sets is a set that contains all elements that are common to both
b) A ∪ B = {1,2,3,4,5} : The union of two sets is a set that contains all elements of both sets.
Your answer may vary: Let U = {1,2,3,4,5} and A = {1,2}
c) A' = {3,4,5} : The complement of a set is a set that contains all elements of U (universal set) that are not elements of the set under consideration.
