Commutative (·) 29. Distributive 31. Inverse (·) 33. Inverse (+) 35. Identity (+) 37. Negatives (Theorem 1) 39. 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. ± 45. (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 one-member subsets of 3 . { b, c }, { a, c }, and { a, b } are two-member 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 one-member subsets of 4 . { }, { }, { a, d }, { }, { b, d }, and { c, d } are two-member subsets of 4 . { b, c, d }, { a, c, d }, { a, b, d }, and { } are three-member subsets of 4 . 4 is a subset of itself. Thus, there are 1 + 4 + 6 + 4 + 1 = 16 subsets of 4 . 47. Yes. This restates Zero Property (2). (Theorem 2, Part 2) 49. (A) True. (B) False, 2 3 is an example of a real number that is not irrational. (C) True.
