Sets question
Hi,

I have two sets:-

A = {3, 4, 5, 6, 9} and B = {3, 5, 7, 8}

I have figured out that A n B = 5 as '5' appears in both sets.

What I am now trying to do is work out:-

A u B with a bar over the A

but don't know what I am looking for.

If anyone can offer me advice on this it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

$\displaystyle A$ = {3;4;5;6;9}
$\displaystyle B$ = {3;5;7;8}

$\displaystyle A \cap B =$ {3;5}

$\displaystyle \bar{A} = A ^{c}$ (It is the complement of A)

Thing is we'll need Omega to see what $\displaystyle A ^{c}$ can be equal to.
