B = {11, 13, 17, 19} there A = B verify

Ans: Given, A = {x|x is a prime number and 10 <x <20}

= {11, 13, 17, 19}

= B

∴ A = B

Practice Set – 1.2

(1) Decide which of the following are equal sets and which are not? Justify your answer:

A = {x|3x – 1 = 2}

B = {x|x is a natural number but x is neither prime nor composite}

C = {x|x N, x <2}

Ans: Given, A = {x|3x – 1 = 2}

= {x|3x = 2+1}

= {x|x = 3/3}

= {x|x = 1}

= {1}

Also, B = {x|x is a natural number but x is neither prime nor composite}

= {1}

And C = {x|x ∈ N, x <2}

= {1}

∴ Clearly, A, B and C are equal sets.

(2) Decide whether set A and B are equal sets. Give reason for your answer.

A = even prime minster

B = {x|7x – 1 = 13}

Ans: Given, A = even prime numbers

= {2}

And B = {x|7x – 1 = 13}

∴ 7x – 1 = 13 => 7x = 13+1 => x = 14/7 = 2

∴ B = {2}

∴ Clearly, A = B

(3) Which of the following are empty sets? Why?

(i) A = {a|a is a natural number smaller than zero}

Ans: ∵ there is no natural number less than zero

∴ A = ϕ

∴ A is an empty set

(ii) B = {x|x2 = 0}

Ans: ∵ x2 = 0 => x = 0

∴ B = {0}

∴ B is not an empty set.

(iii) C = {x|5x – 2 = 0, x N}

Ans: ∵ 5x – 2 = 0

=> 5x = 2

=> x = 2/3 ∉ N

∴ C = ϕ

∴ C is an empty set.

(4) Write with reasons, which of the following sets are finite or infinite.

(i) A = {x|x <10, x is a natural number}

Ans: A = {x|x <10, x is a natural number}

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,7, 8, 9} which is finite

∴ A is a finite set

(ii) B = {y|y <-1, y is an integer}

Ans: B = {y|y <-1, y is an integer}

= {-2, -3, -4, -5, ——-} which is infinite

∴ B is an infinite set

(iii) C = set of students of class 9 from your school

Ans: Number of without in a particular class from a particular school is finite.

∴ C is a finite set.

(iv) Set of people from your village.

Ans: Number of people from village is finite.

Set, D = Set of people from your village

∴ D is finite set

(v) Set of apartments in laboratory

Ans: Set, E = Set of apartments in laboratory

Number of apartments in laboratory is finite

∴ E is a finite set

(vi) Set of whole members.

Ans: Set, F = set of whole numbers

= {0, 1, 2, 3, ——-} which is infinite

∴ F is infinite set

(vii) Set of rational numbers.

Ans: Set, G = Set of rational numbers

= {0, 0.2, 1, 3, 2.6, ——-} which is infinite

∴ G is infinite set.

Ans: (i) (ii) Given, P = {1, 3, 7, 10} and U = {1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12}

∴ P = elements of U which are not P.

= {2, 8, 9, 11, 12}

∴ (P ’) ’ = Elements of U which are not P

= {1, 3, 7, 10}

= P

∴ (P ’) ’ = P

(4) A = {1, 3, 2, 7} Then write any three subsets of A.

Remember this:

Let, A = {1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13}, B = {1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 13}

Verify n (A B) = n (A) + n (B) – n(A ∩ B) for A and B.

Ans: Given, A = {1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9,11, 13}

B = {1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 13}

∴ A ∪ B = {1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13}

A ∩ B = {1, 2, 13}

∴ n(A) = 8, n(B) = 7, n(A ∪ B) = 12, n(A ∩ B) = 3

∴ n(A) + n(B) – n(A ∩ B) = 8+7-3 = 12 = n(A ∪ B)

∴ n(A ∪ B) = n(A) + n(B) – n(A ∩ B)

Practice Set – 1.4

(i) If n(A) = 15, n(A B) = 29, n(A ∩ B) = 7 then n(B) = ?

Ans: We know, n(A∪ B) = n(A) + n(B) – n(A ∩ B)

=> n(B) = n(A ∪ B) + n(A ∩ B) – n(A) ——- (i)

Given, n(A) = 15. n(A ∪ B) = 29, n(A ∩ B) = 7

Putting these values in (i) we get, n(B) = 29+7-15 = 21

(2) In a hostel there are 125 students, out of which 80 drink tea, 60 drink coffee and 20 drink tea and coffee both. Find the number of students who do not drink tea or coffee.

Ans: Let, A be the set of students who drink tea and B be the set of students who drink coffee.

Here, n(∪) = 125, n(A) = 80, n(B) = 60, n(A ∩ B) = 20

Now, (A ∪ B)’ is the set of students who do not drink tea or coffee.

∴ We know, n(A ∪ B) = n(A) + n(B) – n(A ∩ B)

= 80 + 60 – 20

= 140 – 20 = 120

∴ Number of students who do not drink tea or coffee

= n (A ∪ B)’ = n(∪) – n(A ∪ B)

= 125 – 120

= 5

(3) In a competitive exam 50 students passed in English, 60 students passed in Mathematics, 40 students passed in both the subjects, none of them failed in both the subject. Find the number of students who passed at least in one of the subjects?

Ans: Let, A be the set of students who passed in English

B be the set of students who passed in Mathematics

Here, n(A) = 50, n(B) = 60, n(A ∩ B) = 40

∵ Number of students who passed at least one of the

Subjects = n(A ∪ B) = n(A) + n(B) – n(A ∩ B)

= 50 + 60 – 40

= 70

(4) A survey was conducted to know the hobby of 220 students of class (IX). Out of which 130 students informed about their hobby as rock climbing and 180 students informed about their hobby as sky watching. There are 110 students who follow both the hobbies. Then how many students do not have any of the two hobbies? How many of them follow the hobby of rock climbing only? How many students follow the hobby of sky watching only?

Ans: Let, A be the set of students with hobby as rock climbing

B be the set of students with hobby as sky watching

Here, n(∪) = 220, n(A) = 130, n(B) = 180, n(A ∩ B) = 110

Number of students who follow at least one of the hobbies = n(A ∪ B) = n(A) + n(B) – n(A ∩ B)

= 130 + 180 – 110

= 200

∴ Number of students who does not follow any of the two hobbies = n(A ∪ B) = n(u) – n(A ∩ B)

= 220 – 200

= 20

Again, Number of students who follow the hobby of rock climbing only = n(A) – n(A ∩ B)

= 130 – 110 = 20

Number of students who follow the hobby of sky watching only = n(B) – n(A ∩ B) = 180 – 110 = 70

(3) Out of 100 persons in a group, 72 persons speak English, 43 persons speak French. each one out of 100 perons speak at least one language. Then how many speak only English? How many speak only French? How ,any of them speak English and French both ?

Let,

A be Set of persons who speak english

B be Set of persons who speak French.

Here,

n(A) = 72, n(B)= 43

∵ Each one out of 100 Persons speak at least one language

therefore, n ( A ∪ B) = 100

Now,

Number of persons who speak only English = n (A) – n (A ∩ B)

Number of persons who speak only French = n (b) – n (A ∩ B)

Number of persons who speak both English and French

= n (A ∩ B)

= n (a) + n (B) – n (A ∪ B)

= 72 + 43 – 100

= 15

Number of students who speak only English

= n (A) – n (A ∩ B)

= 72 – 15

= 57

Number of Students who speak only French

= n (b) – n (A ∩ B)

= 43-15

= 28

(4) 70 tress were planted by parth and 90 trss were planted by pradmya on the occasion of tree plantation week. out of these, 25 tress planted by both of them together. How many tress planted by parth and pradmya.

A: Let, A be set of trees planted by parth.

B be set of Trees planted by pradmya

Here, n (A) = 70, n (B) = 90, n (A n B) = 25

therefore, Number of trees planted by parth or pradnya

= n (A u B)

= n (A) + n (B) – n (A n B)

= 70 + 90 – 25

= 135

(5) If n (A) = 20, n (B) and n (A B) = 36 then n ( A ∩ B) = ?

A: n (A ∪ B) = n (A) + n (B) – n (A ∩ B)

n (A ∩ B) = n (A) + n (B) – n (A ∪ B)

= 20 + 28 – 36

= 12

6> In a Class, 8 Students out of 28 home only dog as their put animal at home, 6 Students home only cat as their put animal. 10 students home dog and cat as their put animal at home ?

given:

Number of students having dog only = 8

Number of students having Cat only = 6

Number of students having both cat and dog = 10

Therefore, Number of Students having atleast one of the pet animals = 8 + 6 + 10

= 24

Now, Number of students who do not have a dog or cat as their pet animals

= total numbers of students – Number of students having at least one of them = 28 – 24 = 4 (iii) X = { x | x is a prime between 80 and 100}

y = { Y | y is an odd number between 90 and 100}

Ans.

X = { X | x is a Prime between 80 and 100}

= { 83, 89, 97}

y = { Y | y is an odd number between 90 and 100

= { 91, 93,95, 97, 99}

(8) Write the subset relations between the following sets

X = Set of all quadrilaterals

Y = Set of all rhombus

S = Set of all Square

T = Set of all Parallelograms

V = Set of all rectangles

Ans: since, all Square are rectangles, all rectangles are parallelograms and all parallelograms are Quadrilateral

Therefore, S ≤ V ≤ T ≤ X

And since, all squares are rhombus, all rhombuses are parallelograms and all parallelograms are Quadrilaterals.

Therefore, S ≤ V ≤ T ≤ X Observe the vann diagram and write the given sets U, A,B , A U B, and, A n B

Ans: U =  { 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,13}

A = { 1,2,3,5,7}

A ∪ B = {1,2,3,5,7,8,9,10}

A ∩ B = {1,5}

11> If n (A) = 7, n (B) = 13, n (A ∩ B) = 4 then n (A B) = ?

We know,

n (A ∪ B) = n (A) + n (B) – n (A ∩ B)

= 7 + 13 – 4

= 16

Activity 1: fill in the blanks with elements of the set.

A = { 1, 11, 13} , B = {8,5,10,11,15}

A= { } , B= {}

A ∩ B = {},

A’ ∩ B’ {}

A ∪ B = {}

(A ∪ B)’ = {}

(A ∪ B)’ = {}

Ans: given,

U = { 1,3,5,8,9,10,11,12,13,15}

A = {1,11,13}

B =  {8,5,10,11,15}

Therefore, A’ = {3,5,8,9,10,12,15}

B’ = {1,3,9,12,13}

A ∩ B = {11}

A’ ∩ B’ = {3,9,12} …..(1)

A ∪ B = {1,5,8,10,11,13,15}

A’ ∪ B’ = { 1, 3,5,8,9,10,12,13,15}…..(2)

(A ∩ B)’ = {1,3,5,8,9,10,12,13,15} …..(3)

(A ∪ B)’ = {3,9,12} ….(4)

From (2) and (3), (A ∩ B)’ = A’ ∪ B’

From (4) and (1), ( A ∪ B)’ = A’ ∩ B’
