As we learnt 

 

UNION OF SETS -

 

Let A and B be any two sets. The union of A and B is the set which consists of all the elements of A and all the elements of B, the common elements being taken only once. The symbol ‘∪’ is used to denote the union.

- wherein

Symbolically, we write A U B = {x: x ∈ A or x ∈ B}.

 

 n(A U B) = n(A) + n(B) - n(A\capB)

               =12+9-4=17

 n(A U B)'=20-17=3
