C HAPTER 12 P ROBABILITY : F UNDAMENTAL C ONCEPTS 6. (a) (i) The subsets of V are: φ , {Yes}, {No}, {Yes, No}. (ii) The subsets of W are: , {1}, {3}, {8}, {1, 3}, {1, 8}, {3, 8}, {1, 3, 8}. (b) The total number of subsets of X = 2 4 = 16 7. (a) , {courtesy}, {moral}, {incorruptness}, {shame} (b) {courtesy, moral}, {courtesy, incorruptness}, {courtesy, shame}, {moral, incorruptness}, {moral, shame}, {incorruptness, shame} (c) Imagine that “shame” is removed from Y . Then there are 3 elements left. Considering these 3 elements only, the number of subsets without “shame” = number of subsets with no element + number of subsets with 1 element + number of subsets with 2 elements + number of subsets with 3 elements = 1 + 3 + 3 + 1 = 8 Alternatively, with 3 elements in a set, the number of possible subsets = 2 3 = 8. 8. (a) U = { x : x is a country} (b) U = { x : x is an integer} 9. (a) U = { x : x is an organ of the human body} (b) U = {( x , y ) : ( x , y ) is a point on the Cartesian plane} 10. (a) (i) A B = {horse, cow, sheep, pig, dog, chicken, duck} (ii) A B = {cow, pig} (iii) A \ B = {horse, sheep, dog} (iv) B \ A = {chicken, duck} (b) 11. (a) (i) Since K H , H K = H , i.e. H K = {metal, wood, water, soil} (ii) Since K H , H K = K , i.e. H K = {water} (iii) H \ K = {metal, wood, soil} (iv) K \ H = (v) H = {fire} (vi) K = {metal, wood, fire, soil} 77
