E) A = {x | 2x2 - 5x + 2 = 0}, B = {x | 2x3 – 5x2 + 2x = 0}.  Which of the following are true? Explain. (a) 2 = {2}, (b) 2 {2}, (c) 0 = ∅, (d) 0 ∅. 2. Subsets Each element of the set of vowels in the alphabet is, of course, an element of the set of all letters. Similarly, each number in {2, 4, 6} is an element of the set of all even integers, and each real number in {x | x > 3} is also in {x | x > 0}. In this section, we discuss the simple but important relation between sets illustrated by these examples.

We can continue forming complements, unions, and intersections of these sets. For example, (A′)′ = {4, 5, 6, 7}′ = {1, 2, 3} = A, (A ∪ B)′ = {1, 2, 3, 4, 6}′ = {5, 7}, (B ∩ C)′ = ∅′ = (A ∩ B) ∪ C = {2} ∪ {1, 3, 5, 7} = {1, 2, 3, 5, 7}, (A ∪ C) ∩ (A ∩ C) = {1, 2, 3, 5, 7} ∩ {l, 3} = {l, 3}, etc. When considering sets and operations on sets, it is helpful to represent the sets pictorially. A rectangle is drawn to represent the universal set . A subset A of is represented by the region within a circle drawn inside the rectangle.
