Q. 12 Find sets A, B and C such that A B, B C and A C are non-empty sets and A B C

Given, A B, B C and A C are non-empty sets

To prove : A B C

A C = {2}

and A B C

Q. 13 In a survey of 600 students in a school, 150 students were found to be taking tea and 225 taking coffee, 100 were taking both tea and coffee. Find how many students were taking neither tea nor coffee?

n ( taking tea) = 150

n (taking coffee) = 225

n ( taking both ) = 100

n(people taking tea or coffee) = n ( taking tea) + n (taking coffee) - n ( taking both )

= 150 + 225 - 100

=375 - 100

= 275

Total students = 600

n(students taking neither tea nor coffee ) = 600 - 275 = 325

Hence,325 students were taking neither tea nor coffee.

Q. 14 In a group of students, 100 students know Hindi, 50 know English and 25 know both. Each of the students knows either Hindi or English. How many students are there in the group?

n (hindi ) = 100

n (english ) = 50

n(both) = 25

n(students in the group ) = n (hindi ) + n (english ) - n(both)

= 100 + 50 - 25

= 125

Hence,there are 125 students in the group.

Q. 15 In a survey of 60 people, it was found that 25 people read newspaper H, 26 read newspaper T, 26 read newspaper I, 9 read both H and I, 11 read both H and T, 8 read both T and I, 3 read all three newspapers. Find:

(i) the number of people who read at least one of the newspapers.

(ii) the number of people who read exactly one newspaper.

n(H) = 25

n(T) = 26

n(I) = 26

n(H I) = 9

n( T I ) = 8

n( H T ) = 11

n(H T I ) = 3

the number of people who read at least one of the newspapers = n(HTI) = n(H) + n(T) + n(I) - n(H I) - n( T I ) - n( H T ) + n(H T I )

= 25 + 26 + 26 - 9 - 8 - 11 + 3

= 52

Hence, 52 people who read at least one of the newspapers.

(ii) number of people who read exactly one newspaper =

the number of people who read at least one of the newspapers - n(H I) - n( T I ) - n( H T ) + 2 n(H T I )

= 52 - 9- 8 -11 + 6

= 30

Hence, 30 number of people who read exactly one newspaper .

Q. 16 In a survey it was found that 21 people liked product A, 26 liked product B and 29 liked product C. If 14 people liked products A and B, 12 people liked products C and A, 14 people liked products B and C and 8 liked all the three products. Find how many liked product C only.

n(A) = 21

n(B) = 26

n(C) = 29

n( A B) = 14

n( A C) = 12

n (B C ) = 14

n( A B C) = 8

n(liked product C only) = 29 - 4 -8 - 6 = 11

11 people like only product C.

Q. 4 If U = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 }, A = {2, 4, 6, 8} and B = { 2, 3, 5, 7}. Verify that

(i) (A B)′ = A′ B′

(ii) (A B)′ = A′ B′

U = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 }, A = {2, 4, 6, 8} and B = { 2, 3, 5, 7}

(i) (A B)′ = A′ B′

L.H.S = (A B)′ = U - (A B) = {1,9}

R.H.S = A′ B′ = {1,3,5,7,9} {1,4,6,8,9} = {1,9}

L.H.S = R.H.S

Hence,the statement is true.

(ii) (A B)′ = A′ B′

L.H.S = U - (A B) ={1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}

R.H.S = A′ B′ = {1,3,5,7,9} {1,4,6,8,9} = {1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}

L.H.S = R.H.S

Hence,the statement is true.

Given, A X B X and A X B X

To prove: A = B

A = A (AX) (A X B X)

= A (BX)

= (AB) (AX)

= (AB) (A X )

= (AB)

B = B (BX) (A X B X)

= B (AX)

= (BA) (BX)

= (BA) (B X )

= (BA)

We know that (AB) = (BA) = A = B

Hence, A = B
