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)

If it's the same as the Crayola brand we have: soak it in cold water tor 4-10 hours, then rinse it with soapy water when removing it (apparently it gets oily while being soake…d). People do not seem to be fond of it. (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)

A set is a collection of elements usually of the same kind. Eachset can be denoted by a capital letter. A set may be defined bylisting the members or describing the members. A… set is said to befinite when all its members can be listed. The above is an intuitive definition which seemed sufficient forseveral years but then contradictions such as Russel's paradox werepointed out, so a great deal of work had to be done to developaxioms that could define sets without allowing any paradoxes. Theseaxioms require considerable mathematical sophistication tounderstand and often are the basis for a senior level college math A set is a collection of items. For example the set of furniture in a bedroom might be {bed, besidecupboard, dressing table, wardrobe, chair}; this is an example of afinite set as there are a finite number of elements in the set. Another example is the counting numbers {1, 2, 3, ...}; this is anexample of an infinite set as there is no end to the members of theset and it is impossible to list everyone of them. A countable set is a set that can have each of its members put intorelation with one of the counting numbers. Both the above examplesets 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)

That refers to a set that has exactly one element. Also known as a "singleton".
