The union of two sets can be represented by Venn diagrams by the shaded region, representing A ∪ B.

You are watching: Use a venn diagram to illustrate the relationships a ⊂ b and a ⊂ c.

A ∪ B when A and B are disjoint sets

• The intersection of two sets can be represented by Venn diagram, with the shaded region representing A ∩ B.

A ∩ B = ϕ No shaded part

The difference of two sets can be represented by Venn diagrams, with the shaded region representing A - B.

A – B when A ⊂ B Here A – B = ϕ

Relationship between the three Sets using Venn Diagram

• If ξ represents the universal set and A, B, C are the three subsets of the universal sets. Here, all the three sets are overlapping sets. Let us learn to represent various operations on these sets.

A ∩ (B ∪ C)

Some important results on number of elements in sets and their use in practical problems. Now, we shall learn the utility of set theory in practical problems. If A is a finite set, then the number of elements in A is denoted by n(A). Relationship in Sets using Venn DiagramLet A and B be two finite sets, then two cases arise:

Case 1:

A and B are disjoint. Here, we observe that there is no common element in A and B. Therefore, n(A ∪ B) = n(A) + n(B)

Case 2:

When A and B are not disjoint, we have from the figure (i) n(A ∪ B) = n(A) + n(B) - n(A ∩ B) (ii) n(A ∪ B) = n(A - B) + n(B - A) + n(A ∩ B) (iii) n(A) = n(A - B) + n(A ∩ B) (iv) n(B) = n(B - A) + n(A ∩ B)

A ∩ B

Let A, B, C be any three finite sets, then n(A ∪ B ∪ C) = n<(A ∪ B) ∪ C>                   = n(A ∪ B) + n(C) - n<(A ∪ B) ∩ C>                   = + n(C) - n <(A ∩ C) ∪ (B ∩ C)>                   = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) - n(A ∩ B) - n(A ∩ C) - n(B ∩ C) + n(A ∩ B ∩ C)                      Therefore, n(A ∪B ∪ C) = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) - n(A ∩ B) - n(B ∩ C) - n(C ∩ A) + n(A ∩ B ∩ C)
