This question deals with sets. (a) Give a specific example to show that the statement “ U ( S T ) = ( U S ) T ” is false. Let U = , S = { 1 } and T = { 2 } . Then U ( S T ) = and ( U S ) T = { 2 } . In this case U ( S T ) 6 = ( U S ) T (b) Prove the following proposition.

### 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.
