1. ## basic concepts set theory

Given the following sets, determine which pairs are equal.
A= (c,f,j,k); C= (j,k,f,c); B= (x,y,z,w); D= ( 8,3,6,9)

a) A = C
b) C=D
c) A=B

2. Hello, danlynbut!

Do you know the definition of equal sets?

Yes a subset a set is a subset of another if each of its elements is a member of the other set.
