10.) Prove or give a counter example for each statement:

A.) If A(union)C (subset of) B(union)C, then A(subset of)B

B.) If A(Intersects)C (subset of) B(Intersects)C, then A(subset of)B

C.) P(A)-p(B) (subset of) p(A-B)

11.) Give an example of a nested family {Ai: I is in the element of natural numbers} for each condition below:

A .) (Intersection)Ai = (3,5]

B.) (Intersection) Ai = {3,5}

12.) Let Sbe the set of all 2nd degree polynomials with reel roots i.e. S={ax^2+bx+c: a,b,c in the element of real numbers and b^2-4ac(greater or equal to)0} Define a relation R on S by fRg iff f and g have the exact same zeros. Answer the following:

A.) Prove R is an equivalence relation on S (i.e. show R is symmetric, reflexive and transitive)

B.) Find [x^2-1] (i.e. find the equivalence class x^2-1)
