Set Theory Basics(1)

Subset: B is called a subset of A if the number of elements in B is less than or equal to A. Ex:

A ={1,2,3,4}


We can say that B ⊆ A


Proper Subset:

B is called the proper subset of A if A contains at least one element that B doesn't contain.  So A is also called as a proper superset. B⊂ A.


 The cardinality of the set: Number of elements present in a set is called the cardinality of the set. Ex:


Cardinality is denoted of X is written as |X|

|X| = 7


Null Set: A set having no element is called a null set. It is denoted by {} or Ø

But {Ø} is not a null set.
