No, because the intersection of two equivalent sets will have a union the same size as its intersection.

the intersection of two sets of elements is represented by the word: a)or b)and c)up

You normally do not have an intersection of only one set. The intersection of a set with itself is the set itself - a statement that adds little value. The intersection of two sets is the set which contains elements that are in each of the two sets.

I presume you mean intersecting. Two sets are intersecting if they have members in common. The set of members common to two (or more) sets is called the intersection of those sets. If two sets have no members in common, their intersection is the empty set. In this case the sets are called disjoint.

Not necessarily. The odd integers and the even integers are two infinitely large sets. But their intersection is the null (empty) set.

The set of elements that are elements of the two (or more) given sets is called the intersection of the sets.

It shows the intersection of two sets; those elements that are common to both sets.

Given two or more sets there is a set which is their union and a set which is there intersection. But, there is no such thing as a "union intersection set", as required for the answer to the question.

For two sets, the Venn diagram will consist of two overlapping ovals. The area of the overlap is the intersection. The entire area of both ovals is the union.

is the result after doing intersection on 2 or more sets. It contains the elements which are common to all the sets on which intersection were done.

The intersection of two sets, X and Y, consists of all elements that belong to both X and Y.

You need two sets to have an intersection. If you have two sets, call them R and S, then their intersection is the set T that contains all elements of R that also belong to S OR all elements of S and also belong to R...it's the same thing.

Union: putting the elements of the sets together Intersection: getting the common elements of the sets Example: Set A={1,2,3} Set B={2,3,4,5} Union of Sets A&amp;B= {1,2,3,4,5} Intersection of Sets A&amp;B = {2,3}

Suppose A is a subset of S. Then the complement of subset A in S consists of all elements of S that are not in A. The intersection of two sets A and B consists of all elements that are in A as well as in B.

The concept of closure: If A and B are sets the intersection of sets is a set. Then if the intersection of two sets is a set and that set could be empty but still a set. The same for union, a set A union set Null is a set by closure,and is the set A.

The intersection of sets S1, S2, ... Sn is a set that consists of all the elements that are in each one of the sets Si where i = 1, 2, ... n.

An intersection is the region of space that forms when two forms overlap (the intersection of two lines makes a point, the intersection of two planes makes a line, etc.). In set theory, it is the set formed when two or more sets overlap in terms of common elements. With respect to roads, it is the place where two roads cross each other.

If I'm correct in interpreting what you're asking, the intersection set is the set between two sets that contains the common elements (denoted by what looks almost like a large lowercase n). In other words, if: set A = {1,2,3,7,8,9} and set B = {2,3,6,8,9,10) then the intersection set (A n B) = {2,3,8,9}. Just take what the two sets have in common, and put them together (don't repeat the digits, just what's in common).

Because they are disjoint, (ie. they contain none of the same elements) their intersection (what they both share in common) is the empty or null set.

It is used in set theory to indicate intersection. The intersection of two sets, A and B, is the set of all elements that are in A as well as in B.

For two sets, the Venn diagram will consist of two overlapping ovals. The area of the overlap is the intersection. The entire area of both ovals is the union.

union of sets,intersection of sets,difference of sets,ordered pair,ordered n-touples,cartician product of setThe basic operations are union and intersection. The complement of the set is also a basic operation.

if we have set A and B consider A={1,2,3,4}and B={3,4,5,6} the union of these sets is A and B={1,2,3,4,5,6}and the intersection is{3,4} the union and the intersection are same only if A=B

Yes, they can be very useful mathematical sets.
