SET THEORY PRACTICE QUESTIONS

(1) If A and B are two sets and U is the universal set such that

n(U) = 700, n(A) = 200, n(B) = 300 and n (A∩B) = 100

find n (A'∩B').            Solution

(2) Given

n(A)  =  285, n(B) = 195, n(U) = 500, n(AUB) = 410,

find n(A'UB')            Solution

(3) For any three sets A, B and C if

n(A) = 17, n(B) = 17, n(C) = 17, n(A∩B) = 7, n(B∩C) = 6, (A∩C) = 5 and n(A∩B ∩C).          Solution

(4) Verify

n(AUBUC)  =  n(A)+n(B)+n(C)-n(A∩B)-n(B∩C)-n(A∩C)+n(A∩B∩C)

(i) A  =  {4, 5, 6},B  =  {5, 6, 7, 8} and C  =  {6, 7, 8, 9}

(ii) A  =  {a, b, c, d, e} B = {x, y, z} and C = {a, e, x}   Solution

(5) In a college, 60 students enrolled in chemistry,40 in physics, 30 in biology, 15 in chemistry and physics, 10 in physics and biology, 5 in biology and chemistry. No one enrolled in all the three. Find how many are enrolled in at least one of the subjects.  Solution

(6) In a town 85% of the people speak Tamil, 40% speak English and 20% speak Hindi. Also 32% speak English and Tamil, 13% speak Tamil and Hindi and 10% speak English and Hindi, find the percentage of people who can speak all the three languages.    Solution
