In Definitions

Speaking in a grammatical sense, one sets a precedent, not a precedence. Precedent in law refers to a legal decision that serves as a rule or pattern in future cases…. Example: There is a clear precedent to support the argument of the plaintiff. Precedence refers to the act of coming before in time or being more important than something else. Example: Although the bride's father wanted to walk her down the aisle, the bride's mother was given precedence since she had raised her daughter alone for her first 21 years. (MORE)

So far as rising in the East and setting in West, yes. Otherwise, kinda. The Moon's orbit is inclined to the ecliptic from about 5.0° to 5.3°. So it will rise and set ne…arly where the Sun does so, but rarely exactly. (MORE)

Joint sets:Joint sets are those which have common elements Disjoint sets : A pair of sets is said to be disjoint if their intersection is the empty set. That is to say, if t…hey share no elements. All of the usual operations can be performed on disjoint sets, so long as the operation makes sense. (For example, taking the complement of one with respect to the other could pose problems.) (MORE)

No, because equivalent sets are sets that have the SAME cardinality but equal sets are sets that all their elements are precisely the SAME. example: A={a,b,c} and B={1,2,3} …equivalent sets C={1,2,3} and D={1,2,3} equal sets (MORE)

listing the members or describing the members A set is said to be finite when all its members can be listed. A set is a collection of elements usually of the same kind. Each s…et can be denoted by a capital letter. A set may be defined by listing the members or describing the members. A set is said to be finite when all its members can be listed. The above is an intuitive definition which seemed sufficient for several years but then contradictions such as Russel's paradox were pointed out, so a great deal of work had to be done to develop axioms that could define sets without allowing any paradoxes. These axioms require considerable mathematical sophistication to understand and often are the basis for a senior level college math course. a set is well defined disinct objects is called set. A set is a collection of items. For example the set of furniture in a bedroom might be {bed, beside cupboard, dressing table, wardrobe, chair}; this is an example of a finite set as there are a finite number of elements in the set. Another example is the counting numbers {1, 2, 3, ...}; this is an example of an infinite set as there is no end to the members of the set and it is impossible to list everyone of them. A countable set is a set that can have each of its members put into relation with one of the counting numbers. Both the above example sets are countable. (MORE)

Sets contain elements. The intersection of sets (represented by an upside-down 'U') is the list of elements that are common in both sets. The union of sets (represented by 'U'…) is the list of all the elements in the relevant sets. E.g. If A={a,b,c,d,e,f} and B={a,e,i,o,u}: The intersection of A and B is {a,e}. The union of A and B is {a,b,c,d,e,f,i,o,u} (notice how repeating elements, e.g. 'a' and 'e', are only listed once even though they occur in both sets.) (MORE)
