Sets Advanced Level Pure Mathematics 2.1 Introduction 1. A set is a collection of definite, distinguishable objects. e.g. { chairs , desks , tables } is a set of furniture. { a , e , i , o , u } is a set of vowels. { 0 , 1 , - 1 , 2 , - 2 , 3 , - 3 , ... } is a set of integers. 2. The objects of a set is called the elements or members of the set. e.g. a , e , i , o and u are the elements of the set of vowels. 3. Expressing a set in two ways: (a) Tabular form : e.g. { a , e , i , o , u } is the set of vowels. e.g. {0 , 2 , - 2 , 4 , - 4 , ...} is a set containing all the even numbers. (b) Set-Builder form : e.g. { x : x is a vowels } is the set of vowels. e.g. { x : x is an even number } is a set containing all the even numbers. 4. If x is a member of a set A , we write x A. If x is not belong to a set A , we write x A. e.g. If A = { x : x is a vowel } , then a A , u A , but g A. e.g. If B = { x : x is an integer greater than 11 } , then 20 B , 999 B , but 11 B. 5. Sets containing finite number of objects are called finite sets . Otherwise, it is called an infinite set . e.g. { x : x is a vowel } is a finite set. e.g. { x : x is an integer greater than 11 } is a infinite set. 6. Some symbols are frequently adopted: Prepared by K. F. Ngai Page 2

Sets Advanced Level Pure Mathematics 1. N denoted the set of all positive integers. N = { 1, 2, 3, 4, ... } 2. Z denoted the set of all integers. Z = { 0, 1, - 1, 2, - 2, ... } 3. Q = { p q : p, q Z and q 0 } is the set of rational numbers.

    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.
