    DeMorgan's laws help

    Hello,
    I am currently making my way through the preliminaries of my Intro to Analysis book and I need clarification on a few things. I am confused on how we can used the indexed family of sets notation to describe DeMorgan's Laws. How can I write with mathtype on these posts? Anyways my question is how can i use demorgans laws to write a simpler description of:
    R\(the intersection from n=1 to inf of the indexed family of sets defined by
    (-1/n,1/n)? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

    For me it is diffcult to know what you mean.
    But R\backslash \bigcap\limits_{n = 1}^\infty  {\left( {\frac{{ - 1}}{n},\frac{1}{n}} \right)}  = \left( { - \infty ,0} \right) \cup \left( {0,\infty } \right)
    is coded by "R\backslash \bigcap\limits_{n = 1}^\infty {\left( {\frac{{ - 1}}{n},\frac{1}{n}} \right)} = \left( { - \infty ,0} \right) \cup \left( {0,\infty } \right)"

    what is \bigcap_{n = 1}^{\infty} \left( - \frac 1n, \frac 1n \right) ?

    by DeMrogan's Laws, i assume you are referring to:

    C - (A \cap B) = (C - A) \cup (C - B)

    C - (A \cup B) = (C - A) \cap (C - B)

    i don't see how DeMorgan's laws make this simpler. i'd just write it as \mathbb{R} \backslash \{ 0 \} = (-\infty,0) \cup (0, \infty) or something...i gave away the answer

    we use LaTex here. you can paste codes from MathType, but you have to change the tags

    Smile thanks

    I'm not sure how Demorgans makes this any simpler either. Anyways thank you for the latex help, and the solution.
    I have DeMorgan's as:

    i think you meant this:
    <br />
\begin{gathered}<br />
  S\backslash \left( {\bigcup\nolimits_{\lambda  \in \Lambda } {A_\lambda  } } \right) = \bigcap\nolimits_{\lambda  \in \Lambda } {(S\backslash A_\lambda  )}  \hfill \\<br />
  S\backslash \left( {\bigcap\nolimits_{\lambda  \in \Lambda } {A_\lambda  } } \right) = \bigcup\nolimits_{\lambda  \in \Lambda } {(S\backslash A_\lambda  )}  \hfill \\ <br />
\end{gathered} <br />

    as i said, you have to change the \[ and \] tags to [tex] and [/tex] tags

    quote my post to see what i posted, or just click on the code, either way

    see here

    I got it thank you very much
    DeMorgan's
    <br />
S\backslash \left( {\bigcup\nolimits_{\lambda  \in \Lambda } {A_\lambda  } } \right) = \bigcap\nolimits_{\lambda  \in \Lambda } {(S\backslash A_\lambda  )} <br /> <br />

    <br />
S\backslash \left( {\bigcap\nolimits_{\lambda  \in \Lambda } {A_\lambda  } } \right) = \bigcup\nolimits_{\lambda  \in \Lambda } {(S\backslash A_\lambda  )} <br /> <br />

    But how can I use the second one to simplify:
    <br />
R\backslash \bigcap\limits_{n = 1}^\infty  {\left( { - \frac{1}<br />
{n},\frac{1}<br />
{n}} \right)} <br /> <br />
?

    You all have wasted a good deal of effort: because I answered that question in the first response.
    Why donít you read before responding?

    as i said, DeMorgan's law is overkill here. i would not waste time applying DeMorgan's law.

    but, by DeMorgan's law \mathbb{R} \backslash \bigcap_{n = 1}^{\infty} \left( - \frac 1n, \frac 1n \right) = \bigcup_{n = 1}^{\infty} \left[ \mathbb{R} \backslash \left( - \frac 1n, \frac 1n \right) \right] = \mathbb{R} \backslash (-1,1) \cup \mathbb{R} \backslash (-1/2, 1/2) \cup \mathbb{R} \backslash (-1/3,1/3) \cdots = \mathbb{R} \backslash \{ 0 \} which is what we had before...in one step

    thank you that is exactly what i needed help with
