Sets!! Time to have some fun!!

Set is a collection of well defined distinct objects. Like a various sorts things are stored in one single thing.

If two sets are A and B, set (A union B) represents a set where all the elements of set A and B are present. If A={1,2,3}, B={2,3,4,5,6,7} then (A U B )={1,2,3,4,5,6,7}

If two sets are A and B, set \cap (A intersection B) represents a set where only the common elements of both A and B are present. If A ={1,2,3}, B= {2,3,4,5,6,7} then (A \cap B ) = {2,3}.

n(A U B)=n(A)+n(B)-n(A \cap B ) where n(set)= number of elements in a set, it is a very important formula to keep in mind.
