Sets
A set is a collection of elements or numbers or objects, represented within the curly brackets { }. For example: {1,2,3,4} is a set of numbers. There are three forms in which we can represent the sets. They are: Statement form: A set of even number less than 20 Roster form: A = {2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18} Set builder form: A = {x: x=2n, n ∈ N and 1 ≤ n ≤ 20}

There are two methods of representing a set :

(i) Roster or tabular form

(ii) Set-builder form.

Roster or tabular form: In roster form, all the elements of a set are listed, the elements are being separated by commas and are enclosed within braces { }.

For Example:

Z = thesetofallintegers={,3,2,1,0,1,2,3,}

Set-builder form: In the set builder form, all the elements of the set, must possess a single property to become the member of that set.

For Example:

Z={x:xisaninteger}

You can read Z={x:xisaninteger}  as “The set Z equals all the values of x such that x is an integer.”

M={x|x>3}

(This last notation means “all real numbers x such that x is greater than 3. So, for example, 3.1 is in the set M, but 2 is not. The vertical bar | means “such that”.)

You can also have a set which has no elements at all. This special set is called the empty set, and we write it with the special symbol ∅.

If x is a element of a set A, we write xA, and if x is not an element of A we write xA.

So, using the sets defined above,

862 Z, since 862 is an integer, and

2.9 M, since 2.9 is not greater than 3
