Example 1: If A = { a , b , c } , B = { x  x is a letter in the English Alphabet } , and C = /0, find: a) n ( A ) b) n ( B ) c) n ( C ) You will need to remember the following formula: n ( A ∪ B ) = n ( A ) + n ( B ) n ( A ∩ B ) Example 2: Does the formula make sense? Example 3: In a recent survey of 200 members of a local sports club, 100 members indicated that they plan to attend the next Summer Olympic Games, 60 indicated that they plan to attend the next Winter Olympic Games, and 40 indicated that they plan to attend both games.
