### Exercise – 6 A **Sets ICSE Class-8th Concise** Selina Solutions

**Question 1 :-**

**Write the following sets in roster (Tabular) form :**

(i) A_{1} = {x : 2x + 3 = 11}

(ii) A_{2} = {x : x^{2} – 4x – 5 = 0}

(iii) A_{3} = {x : x ∈ Z, -3 ≤ x < 4}

(iv) A_{4} = {x : x is a two digit number and sum of digits of x is 7}

(v) A_{5} = {x : x = 4n, n ∈ W and n < 4}

(vi) A_{6} = {x : x = ; n ∈ N and n > 5}

**Answer :-**

**(iv) A _{4} = {x : x is a two digit number and sum of digits of x is 7}**

A_{4} = {x : x is a two digit number and sum of digits of x is 7}

∵ x is a two digit number and sum of digits of x is 7

∴ x = 16, 25, 34, 43, 52, 61, 70

∴ Given set in roster (Tabular) form is

A_{4} = {16, 25, 34, 43, 52, 61, 70}

**(v) A _{5} = {x : x = 4n, n ∈ W and n < 4}**

A_{5 }= {x : x = 4n, n ∈ W and n < 4}

∵ x = 4n

∴ When n = 0,

x = 4 x 0

⇒ x = 0

When n = 1,

x = 4 x 1

⇒ x = 4

When n = 2,

x = 4 x 2

⇒ x = 8

When n = 3,

x = 4 x 3

⇒ x = 12

∴ Given set in roster (Tabular) form is

A5 = {0, 4, 8, 12}

**Question 2 :-**

**Write the following sets in set-builder (Rule Method) form :**

**Answer :-**

**Question 3 :-**

(i) Is {1, 2, 4, 16, 64} = {x : x is a factor of 32} ? Give reason.

(ii) Is {x : x is a factor of 27} ≠ {3, 9, 27, 54} ? Give reason.

(iii) Write the set of even factors of 124.

(iv) Write the set of odd factors of 72.

(v) Write the set of prime factors of 3234.

(vi) Is {x : x^{2} – 7x + 12 = 0} = {3, 4} ?

(vii) Is {x : x^{2} – 5x – 6 = 0} = {2, 3} ?

**Answer :-**

**(i)** No, {1, 2, 4, 16, 64} ≠ {x : x is factor of 32}

Because 64 is not a factor of 32

**(ii)**

Yes, {x : x is a factor of 27} + {3, 9, 27, 54}

Because 54 is not a factor of 27

**(iii)**

1 x 124 = 124

2 x 62 = 124

4 x 31 = 124

Factors of 124 = 1, 2, 4, 31, 62, 124

Set of even factors of 124 = {2, 4, 62, 124}

**(iv)**

1 x 72 = 72

2 x 36 = 72

3 x 24 = 72

4 x 18 = 72

6 x 12 = 72

8 x 9 = 72

Factors of 72 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 72

Set of odd factors of 72 = {1, 3, 9}

**(v)**

2 | 3234 |

3 | 1617 |

7 | 539 |

7 | 77 |

11 |

3234 = 2 x 3 x 7 x 7 x 11

∴ Set of prime factors of 3234 = {2, 3, 7, 11}

**(vi) **

x^{2 }– 7x + 12 = 0

⇒ x^{2} – 4x – 3x + 12 = 0

⇒ x (x – 4) – 3(x – 4) = 0

⇒ (x – 4) (x – 3) = 0

∴ Either x – 4 = 0

⇒ x = 4

Or

x – 3 = 0

⇒ x = 3

∴ {x : x^{2} – 7x + 12 = 0}

= {3, 4} is true.

**(vii) **

x^{5 }– 5x – 6 = 0

⇒ x^{2} – 6x + x – 6 = 0

⇒ x (x – 6) + 1 (x – 6) = 0

⇒ (x – 6) (x – 1) = 0

∴ Either x – 6 = 0

i.e., x = 6

Or

x + 1 = 0

i.e. x = -1

∴ {x : x^{2} – 5x – 6 = 0} ≠ {2, 3}

In other words {x : x^{2} – 5x -6 = 0}

= {2, 3} is not true.

**Question 4 :-**

**Write the following sets in Roster form :**

(i) The set of letters in the word ‘MEERUT’.

(ii) The set of letters in the word ‘UNIVERSAL’.

(iii) A = {x : x = y + 3, y ∈N and y > 3}

(iv) B = {p : p ∈ W and p^{2} < 20}

(v) C = {x : x is composite number and 5 < x < 21}

**Answer :-**

(i) The set of letters in the word ‘MEERUT’.

Roster form of the set of letters in the word “MEERUT” = {m, e, r, u, t}

(ii) The set of letters in the word ‘UNIVERSAL’.

Roster form of the set of letters in the word “UNIVERSAL” = {u, n, i, v, e, r, s, a, l}

(iii) A = {x : x = y + 3, y ∈N and y > 3}

A = {x : x = y + 3, y ∈ N and y > 3}

x = y + 3

When y = 4,

When y = 5,

When y = 6,

When y = 7,

When y = 8,

………………………

………………………

x = 4+3 = 7

x = 5+3 = 8

x = 6+3 = 9

x = 7+3 = 10

x = 8+3 = 11

……………………….

……………………….

∴ Roster form of the given set A = {7, 8, 9, 10, 11 ………..}

(iv)

B = {p : p ∈ W and p^{2} < 20}

B = {P : P ∈ W and p^{2} < 20}

When p^{2} = 0

P = √0 = 0

When p^{2} = 1

P = √1 = 1

When p^{2} = 4

P = √4 = 2

When p^{2} = 9

P = √9 = 3

When p^{2 }= 16

P = √16 = 4

∴ Roster form of the given set B = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4}

(v) C = {x : x is composite number and 5 < x < 21}

C = {x : x is composite number and 5 < x < 21}

5 ≤ x ≤ 21 means x = 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 ……, 21

But we are given that x is a complete number

∴ x = 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, 21

∴ Roster form of the given set C = {6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, 21}

Note: Composite numbers : The natural numbers (greater than 1), which are not prime, are called composite numbers.

**Question 5 :-**

**List the elements of the following sets :**

(i) {x : x^{2} – 2x – 3 = 0}

(ii) {x : x = 2y + 5; y ∈ N and 2 ≤ y < 6}

(iv) {x : x ∈ Z and x^{2} ≤ 4}

(v) {x : 3x – 2 ≤ 10, x ∈ N}

(vi {x : 4 – 2x > -6, x ∈ Z}

**Answer :-**

(i) {x : x^{2} – 2x – 3 = 0}

{x : x^{2} – 2x – 3 = 0}

x^{2} – 2x – 3 = 0

⇒ x^{2} – 3x + x – 3 = 0

⇒ x (x-3) + 1 (x-3) = 0

⇒ (x+1) (x – 3) = 0

∴ Either x – 3 = 0 x

x = 3

Or

x + 1 = 0

x = -1

∴ Elements of the set {x : x^{2} – 2x – 3 = 0} are 3 and -1

(ii) {x : x = 2y + 5; y ∈ N and 2 ≤ y < 6}

{x : x = 2y + 5; y ∈ N and 2 ≤ y < 6}

x = 2y + 5

When y = 2,

x = 2 x 2+5

= 4+5

= 9

When y = 3,

x = 2 x 3 + 5

= 6+5

= 11

When y = 4,

x = 2 x 4+5

= 8+5

= 13

When y = 5,

x = 2 x 5 + 5

= 10+5

= 15

∴ Elements of the given set {x : x = 2y + 5; y ∈ N and 2≤ y ≤6} are 9, 11, 13, 15

(iii) {x : x is a factor of 24}

{x : x is a factor of 24}

24 = 1 x 24

24 = 2 x 12

24 = 3 x 8

24 = 4 x 6

∴ Elements of the given set {x : x is a factor of 24} are 1, 2. 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24

(iv) {x : x ∈ Z and x^{2} ≤ 4}

{x : x ∈ Z and x^{2} ≤ 4}

When x^{2} = 4

x = ± √4 = ±2

When x^{2} = 1

x = ± √1 = ±1

When x^{2} = 0

x = √0 = 0

∴ Elements of the given set {x : x ∈ Z and x^{2} ≤ 4} are +2, -2, +1, -1, 0 or are -2, -1, 0, 1, 2

(v) {x : 3x – 2 ≤ 10, x ∈ N}

{x : 3x – 2 ≤ 10, x ∈ N}

3x – 2 ≤ 10

⇒ 3x ≤ 10 + 2

⇒ 3x ≤ 12

⇒ x ≤ 12/3

⇒ x ≤ 4

∴ Elements of the given set {x : 3x – 2 ≤ 10, x ∈ N} are 1, 2, 3 and 4

(vi {x : 4 – 2x > -6, x ∈ Z}

{x : 4 – 2x > -6, x ∈ Z}

4 – 2x >-6

-4 + 4 -2x > -6 -4

(Subtracting 4 from both sides)

-2x > -10

-2x + 2x + 10 > -10 + 2x + 10

[Adding 2x + 10 to both sides]+10 > 2x

10/2 > x

5 > x

∴ Elements of the given set { x : 4 – 2x > – 6, x ∈ Z} are 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, -1…….

### Exercise – 6 B **Sets for ICSE Class-8th** Maths Solutions Concise selina

**Question 1 :-**

**Find the cardinal number of the following sets :**

(i) A_{1} = {-2, -1, 1, 3, 5}

(ii) A_{2} = {x : x ∈ N and 3 ≤ x < 7}

(iii) A_{3} = {p : p ∈ W and 2p – 3 < 8}

(iv) A_{4} = {b : b ∈ Z and -7 < 3b – 1 ≤ 2}

Cardinal Number of a set; The number of elements in a set is called is Cardinal Number.

**Answer :-**

**(i) A _{1} = {-2, -1, 1, 3, 5}**

A_{1} = {-2, -1, 1, 3, 5}

Cardinal number of set A_{1} = 5

**(ii) A _{2} = {x : x ∈ N and 3 ≤ x < 7}**

A_{2 }= {x : x ∈ N and 3 ≤ x <7}

= {3, 4, 5, 6}

∴ Cardinal number of set A_{2} = 4

**(iii) A _{3} = {p : p ∈ W and 2p – 3 < 8}**

A_{3} = {P : P ∈ W and 2P – 3 < 8}

2P – 2 < 8

⇒ 2P – 3 + 3 < 8 + 3

(Adding 3 to both sides)

⇒ 2P < 11

⇒ P < 11/2

(Dividing both sides by 2)

⇒ P < 5.5

∴ A_{3 }= {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

∴ Cardinal number of set A_{3} = 6

**(iv) A _{4} = {b : b ∈ Z and -7 < 3b – 1 ≤ 2}**

A_{4} = {b : b ∈ Z and -7 < 3b -1 ≤ 2}

-7 < 3b – 1

⇒ -7+1 < 3b -1+1

(Adding 1 to both sides)

⇒ -6 < 3b

⇒ -6/3 < b

(Dividing both sides by 3)

⇒ – 2 < b

Again 3b – 1 ≤ 2

⇒ 3b -1 + 1 ≤ 2+1 (Adding 1 to both sides)

⇒ 3b ≤ 3

⇒ b ≤ 3/3

(Dividing both sides by 3)

⇒ b ≤ 1

∴ -2 ≤ b ≤ 1

∴ Given set A_{4} = {-1, 0, 1}

∴ Cardinal number of set A_{4} = 3

**Question 2 :-**

If P = {P : P is a letter in the word “PERMANENT”}. Find n (P).

**Answer :-**

P = (P : P is a letter in the word “PERMANENT”}

or P = {p, e, r, m, a, n, t)

n (P) = 7

**Question 3 :-**

**State, which of the following sets are finite and which are infinite :**

(i) A = {x : x ∈ Z and x < 10}

(ii) B = {x : x ∈ W and 5x -3 ≤ 20}

(iii) P = {y : y = 3x -2, x ∈ N & x > 5}

(iv) M = {r : r = 3/n; n ∈ W and 6 < n ≤ 15}

**Answer :-**

**(i)**

A = {x : x ∈ Z and x < 10}

= {….., -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9}

= {9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, -1, -2, -3, -4, …..}

∴ It is an infinite set.

**(ii)**

B = {x : x ∈ W and 5x -3 ≤ 20}

5x – 3 ≤ 20

⇒ 5x -3+3 ≤ 20+ 3 (Adding 3 to both sides)

⇒ 5x ≤ 20+ 3

⇒ 5x ≤ 23

⇒ x ≤ 23/5

(Dividing both sides by 5)

⇒ x ≤ 4.6

∴ B = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4}

∴ It is a finite set.

**(iii)**

P = {y : y = 3x -2, x ∈ N & x > 5}

y = 3x -2

When x = 6,

y = 3 x 6 – 2

= 18 – 2

= 16

When x = 7,

y = 3 x 7 – 2

= 21 – 2

= 19

When x =8,

y = 3 x 8 – 2

= 24 – 2

= 22

When x = 9,

y = 3 x 9 – 2

= 27 – 2

= 25

∴ P = {16, 19, 22, 25,….}

∴ It is an infinite set.

**(iv)**

M = {r : r = 3/n; n ∈ W and 6 < n ≤ 15}

r = 3/n

When n = 7,

r = 3/7

When n = 8,

r = 3/8

When n = 9,

r = 3/9

When n = 10,

r = 3/10

When n =11,

r = 3/11

When n = 12,

r = 3/12

When n = 13,

r = 3/13

When n = 14,

r = 3/14

When n = 15,

r = 3/15

∴ M = {3/7,3/8,3/9,3/10,3/11,3/12,3/13,3/14,3/15}

∴ It is a finite set.

**Question 4 :-**

Find, which of the following sets are singleton sets :

(i) The set of points of intersection of two non-parallel st. lines in the same plane

(ii) A = {x : 7x – 3 = 11}

(iii) B = {y : 2y + 1 < 3 and y ∈ W}

Note : A set, which has only one element in it, is called a SINGLETON or unit set.

**Answer :-**

(i)

The set of points of intersection of two non-parallel st. lines in the same plane……singleton set.

(ii)

A = {x : 7x – 3 = 11}

7x -3 = 11

⇒ 7x = 11 + 3

⇒ 7x = 14

⇒ x = 14/7 = 2

∴ A = {2}

Hence given set A is a singleton set.

(iii)

B = {y :2y + 1 < 3 and y ∈ W}

2y + 1 < 3

⇒ 2y + 1 – 1< 3 -1 (Subtracting 1 from both sides)

⇒ 2y < 2

⇒ y < 2/2 (Dividing both sides by 2)

⇒ y < 1

∴ B = {0}

Hence it is a singleton set.

**Question 5 :-**

**Find, which of the following sets are empty :**

(i) The set of points of intersection of two parallel lines.

(ii) A = {x : x ∈ N and 5 < x < 6}

(iii) B = {x : x^{2} + 4 = 0, x ∈ N}

(iv) C = {even numbers between 6 & 10}

(v) D = {prime numbers between 7 & 11}

Note : The set, which has no element in it, is called the empty or null set.

**Answer :-**

**(i)**

“The set of points of intersection of two parallel lines” is an empty set because two parallel lines do not intersect anywhere.

**(ii) **

A = {x : x ∈ N and 5 < x < 6}

As 5 < x ≤ 6

∴ x = 6

∴ A = {6}

Hence given set A is not an empty set.

**(iii) **

B = {x : x^{2} + 4 = 0, x ∈ N}

x^{2} + 4 = 0

⇒ x^{2} = -4

⇒ x = √-4 which is not a natural number.

But x ∈ N

∴ B = { }

∴ Given set B is an empty set.

**(iv) **

C = {Even numbers between 6 & 10}

∴ C = {8}

Hence it is not an empty set.

**(v) **

D = {Prime numbers between 7 & 11}

Because there is no prime number between 7 and 11.

∴ D = { }

Hence it is an empty set.

**Question 6 :-**

(i) Are the sets A = {4, 5, 6} and B = {x : x^{2} – 5x – 6 = 0} disjoint ?

(ii) Are the sets A = {b, c, d, e} and B = {x : x is a letter in the word ‘MASTER’} joint ?

Note :

(i) Two sets are said to be joint sets, if they have at least one element in common.

(ii) Two sets are said to be disjoint, if they have no element in common.

**Answer :-**

**(i)**

A = {4, 5, 6}

B = {x : x^{2} – 5x – 6 = 0}

x^{2} – 5x – 6 = 0

⇒ x^{2} – 6x + x -6 = 0

⇒ x(x – 6) +1(x – 6) = 0

⇒ (x – 6) (x+1) = 0

∴ Either x – 6 = 0x

⇒ x = 6

Or

x+1 = 0

⇒ x = -1

∴ B = {6, -1}

Hence set A and set B are not disjoint because these sets have element 6 in common.

**(ii) **

A = {b,c,d,e}

B = {x : x is a letter in the word “MASTER”}

∴ B = {m, a ,s, t, e, r}

Hence set A and set B are joint because these sets have element e in common.

**Question 7 :-**

**State, whether the following pairs of sets are equivalent or not :**

(i) A = {x : x ∈ N and 11 ≥ 2x – 1} and B = {y : y ∈ W and 3 ≤ y ≤ 9}

(ii) Set of integers and set of natural numbers.

(iii) Set of whole numbers and set of multiples of 3.

(iv) P = {5, 6, 7, 8} and M = {x : x ∈ W and x < 4}

Note : Two sets are said to be equivalent, if they contain the same number of elements.

**Answer :-**

**(i)**

A = {x : x ∈ N and 11 ≥ 2x -1}

11 ≥ 2x -1

⇒ 11 + 1 ≥ 2x -1+1

⇒ 12 ≥ 2x

⇒ 122 ≥ x

⇒ 6 ≥ x

∴ A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

∴ n(A) = 6

B = {y : y ∈ W and 3 ≤ y ≤ 9}

∵ 3 ≤ y ≤ 9

B = {3,4,5,6,7,8,9}

n (B) = 7

Cardinal number of set A = 6 and cardinal number of set B = 7

Set A and set B are not equivalent.

**(ii) **

Set of integers has infinite number of elements. Set of natural numbers has infinite number of elements.

Set of integers and set of natural numbers are equivalent because both these sets have infinite number of elements.

**(iii) **

Set of whole numbers, has infinite number of elements. Set of multiples of 3, has infinite number of element.

Set of whole numbers and set of multiples of 3 are equivalent because both these sets have infinite number of elements.

**(iv) **

P = {5,6,7,8}

n (P) = 4

M = {x : x ∈ W and x ≤ 4}

M = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4}

n (M) = 5

Now Cardinal number of set P = 4 and

Cardinal number of set M = 5

These sets are not equivalent.

**Question 8 :-**

**State, whether the following pairs of sets are equal or not :**

(i) A = {2, 4, 6, 8} and

B = {2n : n ∈ N and n < 5}

(ii) M = {x : x ∈ W and x + 3 < 8} and

N = {y : y = 2n – 1, n ∈ N and n < 5}

(iii) E – {x : x^{2} + 8x – 9 = 0} and

F = {1, -9}

(iv) A = {x : x ∈ n, x < 3} and

B = {y : y^{2} – 3y + 2 = 0}

Note: Two sets are equal, if both the sets have same (identical) elements.

**Answer :-**

**(i) **

A = {2, 4, 6, 8} and

B = {2n : n ∈ N and n < 5}

When n = 1, 2n = 2 x 1= 2

When n = 2, 2n = 2 x 2= 4

When n = 3, 2n = 2 x 3= 6

When n = 4, 2n = 2 x 4= 8

∴ B = {2, 4, 6, 8}

Now we see that elements of sets A and B are the same (identical)

∴ Sets A and B are equal.

**(ii) **

M = {x : x ∈ W and x + 3 < 8}

x + 3 < 8

⇒ x < 8 – 3

⇒ x < 5

∴ M = {0, 1,2, 3, 4}

N = {y : y = 2n -1, n ∈ N and n < 5}

y = 2n – 1

When n = 1,

y = 2 x 1-1

⇒ y = 2-1

= 1

When n = 2,

y = 2 x 2-1

⇒ y = 4-1

= 3

When n =3,

y = 2 x 3-1

⇒ y = 6-1

= 5

When n = 4,

y = 2 x 4-1

⇒ y = 8-1

= 7

∴ N = {1, 3, 5,7}

Now we see that elements of sets M and N are not the same (identical)

∴ Sets M and N are not equal.

**(iii) **

E = {x : x^{2} + 8x – 9 = 0}

x^{2} + 8x – 9 = 0

⇒ x^{2} + 9x – x – 9 = 0

⇒ x(x+9) – 1(x+ 9) = 0

⇒ (x+1) (x+9) = 0

∴ Either x + 9 = 0

⇒ x = -9

Or

x – 1 = 0

⇒ x = 1

∴ E = {-9, 1}

F = {1, -9}

Now we see that the elements of sets E and F are the same (identical)

Sets E and F are equal.

**(iv) **

A = {x : x ∈ N, x < 3}

= {1, 2}

B = {y : y^{2} – 3y + 2 = 0}

y^{2} – 3y + 2 = 0

⇒ y^{2} – 2y – y + 2 = 0

⇒ y(y – 2) -1(y – 2) = 0

⇒ (y – 2)(y – 1) = 0

∴ Either y – 2 = 0

⇒ y = 2

Or

y – 1 = 0

⇒ y = 1

∴ B = {1, 2}

Now we see that elements of sets A and B are the same (identical).

∴ Sets A and B are equal.

(iv) {x : x = 3n – 2, n ∈ W, n ≤ 8}

(v) {x : x = 3n – 2,n ∈ Z, n ≤ 8}

(vi) {x : x =n-2/n+2 , n ∈ w)

**Answer :-**

**(i) **

The set of multiples of 8.

= {8, 16, 24, 32, …..}

It is an infinite set.

**(ii) **

The set of integers less than 10.

= { 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, -1, -1, -2, …..}

It is an infinite set.

**(iii) **

The set of whole numbers less than 12

= {11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0}

It is a finite set.

**(iv) **

{x : x = 3n – 2, n ∈ W, n ≤ 8}

Substituting the value of n = (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8) we get

= {-2, 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 22}

It is finite set.

**(v) **

{x : x = 3n – 2,n ∈ Z, n ≤ 8}

= {22, 19, 16, 13, 10, 7, 4, 1, -2, -5, ….}

It is infinite set.

**(vi) **

{-2, -1/2,0,1/4,2/5…….}

It is infinite set.

**Question 10 :-**

Answer, whether the following statements are true or false. Give reasons.

(i) The set of even natural numbers less than 21 and the set of odd natural numbers less than 21 are equivalent sets.

(ii) If E = {factors of 16} and F = {factors of 20}, then E = F.

(iii) The set A = {integers less than 20} is a finite set.

(iv) If A = {x : x is an even prime number}, then set A is empty.

(v) The set of odd prime numbers is the empty set.

(vi) The set of squares of integers and the set of whole numbers are equal sets.

(vii) In n(P) = n(M), then P → M.

(viii) If set P = set M, then n(P) = n(M).

(ix) n(A) = n(B) ⇒ A = B.

**Answer :-**

**(i)**

**True.**

**Reason:**

Set of even natural number less than 21

= {2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20}

∴ Cardinal Number of this set = 10

Set of odd natural numbers less than 21

= {1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19}

∴ Cardinal number of this set = 10

Now we see that cardinal number of both these sets = 10

∴ “The set of even natural numbers less than 21 and the set of odd natural numbers less than 21 are equivalent sets”. Hence it is a True statement.

**(ii)**

**False.**

**Reason:**

E = {Factors of 16}

= {1, 2, 4, 8, 16}

1 x 16 = 16

2 x 8 = 16

4 x 4 = 16

F = {Factors of 20}

= {1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20}

1 x 20 = 20

2 x 10 = 20

4 x 5 = 20

Now we see that elements of set E and set F are not the same (identical)

∴ “if E = {Factors of 16} and F = {Factors of 20}, then E = F”……is a False statement.

**(iii)**

**False.**

**Reason:**

A = {Integers less than 20}

= {19, 18, 17, 16,…..,0, -1, -2, -3,….}

∴ “The set A = {Integers less than 20} is a finite set”……is a False statement.

**(iv)**

**False.**

**Reason:**

A = {x : x is an even prime number} = {2}

∴ “If A = {x : x is an even Prime number}, then set A is empty” ….. is a False statement.

**(v)**

**False.**

**Reason:**

Set of odd prime numbers

= {3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23,….}

∴ “The set of odd prime numbers is the empty set” ……is a False statement.

**(vi)**

**False.**

**Reason:**

Integer Square of Integer Whole No.

0 : (0)^{2} = 0 0

±1 : (±1)^{2} = 1 1

±2 : (±2)^{2} = 4 2

±3 : (±3)^{2 }= 9 3

±4 : (±4)^{2} = 16 4

±5 : (±5)^{2} = 25 5

….. : ….. ….. …..

….. : ….. ….. …..

∴ Set of square of integers

= {0, 1, 4, 9, 16, 25,…….}

Set of whole numbers = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,….}

Hence “The set of square of integers and the set of whole numbers are equal…False statement.

**(vii)**

**True**

**Reason:**

n(P) = n(M)

It means number of elements of set P

= Number of elements of set M.

∴ Sets P and M are equivalent.

∴ “If n(P) = n(M), then P ↔ M” … is a True statement.

**(viii)**

**True.**

**Reason:**

Set P = Set M

It means sets P and M are equal. Equal sets are equivalent also.

∴ Number of elements of set P = Number of elements of set M

∴ “If set P = set M, then n(P) = n(M)” ……..is a True statement.

**(ix)**

**False**

**Reason:**

n(A) = n(B)

⇒ Number of elements of set A

= Number of elements of set B

∴ Given sets are equivalent but not equal.

∴ “n(A) = n(B) ⇒ A = B” ……….is a False statement.

If A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

B = {2, 4, 6, 8}

and C = {3, 4, 5, 6}

(i) Verify : A – (B ∪ C) = (A – B) ∩ (A – C)

**Answer :-**

(i)

A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

B = {2, 4, 6, 8}

C = {3, 4, 5, 6}

B ∪ C = {2, 4, 6, 8} ∪ {3, 4, 5, 6}

= {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8}

A – (B ∪ C) = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} – {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8}

= {1}

A – B = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} – {2, 4, 6, 8}

= {1, 3, 5}

A – C = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} – {3, 4, 6, 8}

= {1,2}

∴ (A – B) ∩ (A – C) = {1, 3, 5} – {1,2}

= {1}

∴ A – (B ∪ C) = (A – B) ∩ (A – C)

(ii)

A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

B = {2, 4, 6, 8}

C = {3, 4, 5, 6}

B ∩ C = {2, 4, 6, 8} ∩ {3, 4, 5, 6}

= {4,6}

A – (B ∩ C) = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} – {4,6}

= {1, 2, 3, 5}

A – B = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} – {2, 4, 6, 8}

= {1, 3, 5}

A -C = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} – {3, 4, 5, 6}

= {1,2}

(A – B) ∪ (A – C) = {1, 3, 5} ∪ {1,2}

= {1, 2, 3, 5}

∴ A – (B ∩ C) = (A – B) ∪ (A – C)

**Question 9 :-**

Given A = {x : ∈ N :< 6}, B = {3, 6, 9} and C = {x ∈ N : 2x – 5 ≤ 8}. show that:

(i) A ∪ (B ∩ C) = (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C)

(ii) A ∩ (B ∪ C) = (A ∩ B) ∪ (A ∩ C)

**Answer :-**

(i)

A = {x : ∈ N :< 6}

B = {3, 6, 9}

C = {x ∈ N : 2x – 5 ≤ 8}

2x – 5 ≤ 8

⇒ 2x ≤ 8+5

⇒ 2x ≤ 13

⇒ x ≤ 13/2

⇒ x ≤ 6.5

∴ C = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

B ∩ C = {3, 6, 9} ∩ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

= {3,6}

∴ A ∪ (B ∩ C) = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} ∪ {3,6}

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

A ∪ B = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} ∪ {3, 6, 9}

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9}

A ∪ C = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} ∪ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

∴ (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C)

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9} ∩ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

∴ A ∪ (B ∩ C) = (A ∪ B) ∩ (A ∪ C)

(ii)

A = {x : ∈ N :< 6}

B = {3, 6, 9}

C = {x ∈ N : 2x – 5 ≤ 8}

2x – 5 ≤ 8

⇒ 2x ≤ 8+5

⇒ 2x ≤ 13

⇒ x ≤ 13/2

⇒ x ≤ 6.5

∴ C = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

B ∪ C = {3, 6, 9} ∪ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9}

A ∩ (B ∪ C) = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} ∩ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9}

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

Now A ∩ C = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} ∩ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

A ∩ B = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} ∩ {3, 6, 9}

= {3}

∴ (A ∩ B) ∪ (A ∩ C) = {3} ∪ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

∴ A ∩ (B ∪ C) = (A ∩ B) ∪ (A ∩ C)

### Exercise – 6 E **Sets ICSE Class-8th ** Selina Solutions

**Question 1 :-**

**Answer :-**

(i) A ∪ B = {a, c, d, e} ∪ {b, c, e, f}

⇒ A ∪ B = {a, b, c, d, e, f}

(ii) A’ = {b ,f, g, h}

A’ ∩ B = {b, f, g, h} ∩ {b, c, e, f}

⇒ A’ ∩ B = {b, f}

(iii) A – B = {a, c, d, e} – {b, c, e, f}

⇒ A – B = {a, d}

(iv) B – A = {b, c, e, f} – {a, c, d, e}

= {b, f}

(v) A ∪ B = {a, b, c, d, e, f}

∴ (A ∪ B)’ = {h, g}

**Question 2 :-**

**From the given diagram, find :**

(i) A’

(ii) B’

**Answer :-**

**(i)** A = {1, 3, 4, 6}

A’ = {2, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10}

**(ii)** B = {1, 2, 5}

∴ B’ = {3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}

**(iii) **A’ ∪ B’ = {2, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10} ∪ {3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}

= {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}

**(iv)** A ∩ B = {1, 3, 4, 6} ∩ {1, 2, 5}

= {1}

∴ (A ∩ B)’ = {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}

From Part (iii) and Part (iv) we conclude

A’ ∪ B’ = (A ∩ B)’

Now A ∩ B = {2, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10} ∩ {3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}

⇒ A’ ∪ B’ = {7, 8, 9, 10} …(I)

Now A ∪ B = {1, 3, 4, 6} ∪ {1, 2, 5}

= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

∴ (A ∩ B)’ = {7, 8, 9, 10} …(II)

From I and II we conclude

A’ ∪ B’ = (A ∩ B)’

**Question 3 :-**

**Answer :-**

**(i)** B ∩ C = {d, e, f, g, h} ∩ {h, i, k, l}

= {h, j}

∴ A ∪ (B ∩ C) = {a, b, c, d, g, h, i, j} ∪ {h, j}

= {a, b, c, d, g, h, i, j}

**(ii) **A – C = {a, b, c, d, g, h, i} – {h, i, j, k, l}

= {a, b, c, d, g}

∴ B – (A – C) = {d, e, f, g, h, j} – {a, b, c, d, g}

= {e, f, h, j}

**(iii) **A – B = {a, b, c, d, g, h, i} – {d, e, f, g ,h, i}

⇒ A – B = {a, b, c, i} …(I)

**(iv) **B’ = {a, b, c ,i, k, l, m, n, p}

A ∩ B’ = {a, b, c, d, g, h, i} ∩ {a, b, c, i, k, l, m, n, p}

⇒ A ∩ B’ = {a, b, i} …(II)

From I and II we can conclude A ∩ B’ = A – B

**Question 4 :-**

**Answer :-**

(i) B – A = {1, 5} – {1, 5, 6, 7, 9}

= { }

(ii) A = {1, 5, 6, 7, 9}

(iii) B = {1, 5}

∴ B’ = {2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}

(iv) A ∩ B = {1, 5, 6, 7, 9} ∩ {1,5}

= {1,5}

(v) A ∪ B = {1, 5, 6, 7, 9} ∪ {1,5}

= {1,5, 6, 7, 9}

(ii) B – A or A’ ∩ B

(iii) (B – A)’

**Question 9 :-**

**Answer :-**

**Try yourself !**

**Question 10 :-**

**Answer :-**

(i) A ∪ B = {a, b, c, d} ∪ {c, d, e, g}

= {a, b, c, d, e, g}

∴ (A ∪ B) – C = {a, b, c, d, e, g} – {b, c, e, f}

= {a, d, g}

(ii) (A ∩ C) = {a, b, c, d} ∩ {b, c, e, f}

= {b, c}

∴ B – (A ∩ C) = {c, d, e, g} – {b, c}

= {d, e, g}

(iii) B ∩ C = {c, e, d, g} ∩ {b, c, e, f}

= {c, e}

**∴ A – (B ∩ C) = (A – B) ∪ (A – C) **

⇒ (B ∩ C) = {c, e}

So, A − (B ∩ C) = {a, b, d} …..(1)

**Question 11 :-**

:

**Answer :-**

**(i)**

{a, d} = {a, b, e, d} – {b, c, e, f}

= A – B

**(ii)**

{a, d, c, f} = {A ∪ B) – {b, e}

= {A ∪ B) – (A ∩ B)

Also {a, d, c, f} = (A – B) ∪ (B – A)

**(iii)**

{a, d, c, f, g, h} = (A ∩ B)’

[∵ {b, e} = A ∩ B ∴ (A ∩ B)’ = {a, d, c, f, g, h}]**(iv)**

{a, d, g, h} = B’

[∵ {b, c, e, f} = B ∴ B’ = {a, d, g, h}]**(v)**

{g, h} = (A ∪ B)’

[∵ A ∪ B = {a, b, c, d, e, f} ∴ (A ∪ B)’ = {g, h}]— End of **Sets** Solutions :–
