    For Jameson

    If A is the set of even integers and B the set of integers which are multiples of 3, describe the set (AUB) - (AnB) ?

    Ha! A personalized post! Yay.

    Start by breaking down the first and second terms.

    AUB - Both even integers and multiples of 3

    AnB - Numbers shared by both these sets.

    Describe both and post back.

    Basically for this question Jameson, I just need to answer with words, no Venn diagram or the lot.

    So I just put in words it's the set which comprises of the even integers OR the odd integer which a multiples of 3 but not both.

    Am I correct?

    I would say it's the set of even integers and multiples of three minus the set of even multiples of three.
