    AUO not... everything A and O are not not??

    I m confused by a problem: A not, universal set not, O not. its AUO with a line over all three. How does that read if I have to put the problem into words?
    Basically its giving me three sets of names, A J and O, then asking me to pick which names to list based on the problem AUO 'not'. I am reading that as "list everything A and O are not not??

    If I am interpreting correctly, the \overline{A\cup O} means not in A or O. The complement of A or O.

    I honestly cannot understand what you have written.
    Is it something like this: \overline{A \cup B}=\overline{A}\cap \overline{B} ?
    You can use LaTeX code.
    [tex]\overline{A \cup B}=\overline{A}\cap \overline{B} [/tex]
