HOMEWORK 2 DUE: Fri., Oct. 7 NAME: Problem 1: (1 point) Suppose A negationslash = and B negationslash = . Show that A × B = B × A iff A = B . Proof: Assume A negationslash = and B negationslash = . Part 1: Assume A × B = B × A . By definition of equality of sets, this means that every element of A × B is an element of B × A so there exist elements p , m A and elements q , l B such that x = ( p,q ) A × B and x = ( l,m ) B × A and ( p,q ) = ( l,m ). But by the definition of ordered pairs, that means p = l and q = m so for all p A , there exists an l B such that p = l hence A B . Similarly, B A . Part 2: Assume A = B . Let ( p,q ) A × B . Hence p A = B = p B and q B = A = q A . Hence ( p,q ) B × A as well by definition of Cartesian product, hence A × B ofB × A . Similarly, B × A A × B. Parts 1 and 2 imply that assuming A negationslash = and B negationslash = then A × B = B × A iff A = B . Q. E. D. Problem 2: (1 point) If A , B , and C are finite sets, show that # ( A B C ) = # A + # B + # C # ( A B ) # ( A C ) # ( B C ) + # ( A B C ) . Proof: Since this is equality of numbers, rather than sets, it suffices to show that for element x in the universal set X contributes the same number to both sides of the equation above. An element x A B C or x / A B C .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
