It appears as if you are dealing with the number of elements in a set.
That is denoted by or perhaps .
Thus your formula would be:
BTW: The LaTex for that is [tex]|A\cup B\cup C|=|A|+|B|+|C|-|A\cap B|-|A\cap C| -|B\cap C|+|A\cap B\cap C| [/tex].
I have a problem I need to do, and I was wondering what the method is to convert set notation to set builder notation. The problem is:
Show that if A, B, and C are sets than
A B C = A + B + C - (A B) - (A C) - (B C) + (A B C)
If there is a better method than converting to set builder notation, let me know what it is (Although I would still like to know a general method from converting from this notation to a set builder notation).
Thanks,
James
