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
