Set word problems :
Here we see word problems involving sets. In these question we have to apply one or more set operations. Some problems involving proving set laws. We are going to use venn diagrams to solve the problems.

The above problems includes set operations like union and intersection. Students can practice the problems using the worked out problems. Parents and teachers can guide the students to solve the problems. If any doubt is there you can contact us through mail. We will clear all your doubts.
