    Question Problem relating to Venn Diagram.

    The universal set E is the set of all triangles. Given that
    A = { isosceles triangle }
    B = { equilateral triangle }
    C = { obtuse -angled triangle }

    Illustrate the sets A, B and C within a Venn diagram.

    Thanks.

    What have you done?

    Think about these:

    Are equilateral triangles isosceles?
    Are equilaterlal triangles obtuse angled triangles?
    Are all isosceles triangles obtuse angles triangles?

    Hello Guys,

    Captain RonL sir, you are right, these triangles are not equavelent or corresponds to each other but the question remains stand still, that if we need to show them through a Venn Diagram, then how do we show them.

    What is a Venn diagram? You start with labeling what sets intersect others. In this case you have CaptainBlack's questions to answer. Once you've done this then you know what sets intersect and can sketch your diagram from that.

    one more hint to take it home, you can view these as answers to CaptainBlack's questions.

    All equilateral triangles are isosceles, so we have B \subset A, i use \subset here to mean a proper subset.

    Some (but not all) obtuse triangles are isosceles, so we have that A \cap C \ne \emptyset but there is at least one element, call it, x such that x \in C but x \not \in A

    No equilateral triangle is obtuse, so we have B \cap C = \emptyset

    Now can you draw a Venn Diagram? Recall, we represent the universal set by a large rectangle, in which our sets are contained. our other sets, we represent as circles that may or may not overlap.

    See attachment, but I warn you there may be a deliberate error, so check it very carefully.

    Hello Guys,

    Thanks Captain, I was almost near to the solution.
    As my findinds are :
    B = An equilateral triangle has 3 equal sides.
    A = An isosceles triangle has 2 equal sides.
    C All equilateral triangles are isosceles.

    So, Set B is entirely in set A. Set B and C dont overlap. An isosles trinagle can be obtuse. So set A and C overlap each other.

    thanks.
