Sets set is a collection of objects, S elements are the objects in a set, x Notation S = { x 1 , x 2 , … x n } x i S (Element x i belongs to Set S ) Examples S = {a, e, i, o, u} (set of vowels) T = {Head, Tail} (set of outcomes of a coin toss) D = {1,2,3,4,5,6} (set of outcomes of a dice)

Set Notation “is a member of” Example: If S = {a, e, i, o, u} a S ( a belongs to S ) m S ( m does not belong to S ) subset T = {a, e} T S “such that” - S = { x | x satisfies a P} - read as, set S has elements x in it such that x satisfies a property P A = { n | 90 n 100} (set of scores for an A) (Set A has scores n such that 90 n 100) ≤ ≤ The number of elements in a set can be countable: N = { n | 0 < n < 5}, n is integer countable infinite: E = { k | k /2 is an integer}, k is an integer
