Negatives (Theorem 1)

The even integers between 3 and 5 are 2, 0, 2, and 4. Hence, the set is
written {2, 0, 2, 4}.
41.
The letters in "status" are:
s,t,a,u
. Hence, the set is written {
}, or,
equivalently, {
a,s,t,u
}.
43.
Since there are no months starting with
B
, the set is empty.

(A) The empty set,
±
, is a subset of every set.
{
} and {
b
} are subsets of
S
2
.
2
is a subset of itself.
Thus, there are four subsets of
2
.
(B) The empty set,
±
, is a subset of every set.
{
}, {
}, and {
c
} are onemember subsets of
3
.
{
b, c
}, {
a, c
}, and {
a, b
} are twomember subsets of
3
.
3
is a subset of itself.
Thus, there are 1 + 3 + 3 + 1 = 8 subsets of
3
.
(C) The empty set,
±
, is a subset of every set.
{
}, {
}, {
}, and {
d
} are onemember subsets of
4
.
{
}, {
}, {
a, d
}, {
}, {
b, d
}, and {
c, d
} are twomember subsets
of
4
.
{
b, c, d
}, {
a, c, d
}, {
a, b, d
}, and {
} are threemember subsets
of
4
.
4
is a subset of itself.
Thus, there are 1 + 4 + 6 + 4 + 1 = 16 subsets of
4
.

Yes. This restates Zero Property (2). (Theorem 2, Part 2)

(A) True.
(B) False,

3
is an example of a real number that is not irrational.
(C) True.
