**a simple mathematical representation of the set in mathematical form**. In the roster form, the elements (or members) of a set are listed in a row inside the curly brackets. Every two elements are separated by a comma symbol in a roster notation if the set contains more than one element.

Roster form is **a representation of a set that lists all of the elements in the set, separated by commas, within braces**.

A roster can contain any number of elements from no elements to an infinite number. … Set-builder notation is **a list of all of the elements in a set, separated by commas, and surrounded by French curly braces**. The symbol ” | ” is read as “such that”. It may also appear as ” : “, meaning “such that”.

The contents of a set can be described by listing the elements of the set, separated by commas, **inside a set of curly brackets**. This way of describing a set is called roster form .

For example, **C={2,4,5}** denotes a set of three numbers: 2, 4, and 5, and D={(2,4),(−1,5)} denotes a set of two pairs of numbers. … Another option is to use set-builder notation: F={n3:n is an integer with 1≤n≤100} is the set of cubes of the first 100 positive integers.

- {y : y > 0} The set of all y such that y is greater than 0. Any Value greater than 0.
- {y : y ≠ 15} The set of all y such that y is any number except 15. Any value except 15.
- {y : y < 7} The set of all y such that y is any number less than 7. Any value less than 7.

Notation: A set is usually denoted by **capital letters**, i.e. A,B,C,…,X,Y,Z,… etc., and the elements are denoted by small letters, i.e. a,b,c,…,x,y,z,… etc. If A is any set and a is the element of set A, then we write a∈A, read as a belongs to A.

The listing method is **the method in which the members of the set are written as a list, separated by the comma and enclosed within the curly braces**. Rule method in sets involves specifying the rule or a condition that can be used to decide whether an object can belong to the set.

Roster Form | Set-Builder Form |
---|---|

A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} | A = {x : x is a natural number less than 6} |

B = {a, e, i, o, u} | B = {y: y is a vowel in English} |

To write a set in roster form, all you have to do **is list each element of the set, separated by commas, within a pair of curly braces**! Let’s look at the example above of the set of even numbers between 0 and 10, inclusive. Let’s call this set S.

Set notation is used to **define the elements and properties of sets using symbols**. Symbols save you space when writing and describing sets. Set notation also helps us to describe different relationships between two or more sets using symbols.

In set theory, **the union** (denoted by ∪) of a collection of sets is the set of all elements in the collection. It is one of the fundamental operations through which sets can be combined and related to each other.

- The verbal description method.
- The roster notation or listing method.
- The set-builder notation.

Factor trees are **a way of expressing the factors of a number**, specifically the prime factorization of a number. Each branch in the tree is split into factors. Once the factor at the end of the branch is a prime number, the only two factors are itself and one so the branch stops and we circle the number.

- Finite Set. A set which contains a definite number of elements is called a finite set. …
- Infinite Set. A set which contains infinite number of elements is called an infinite set. …
- Subset. …
- Proper Subset. …
- Universal Set. …
- Empty Set or Null Set. …
- Singleton Set or Unit Set. …
- Equal Set.

A set-builder notation describes or **defines the elements of a set instead of listing the elements**. For example, the set { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 } list the elements. … When the set is written as { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 } , we call it the roster method.

This method of representing a set by writing all its elements is called Roster method or Tabular method. So, Roster method or Tabular method is a **method in which we write all the elements inside a pair of brackets {}**.

The symbol ∈ indicates set membership and means “is an element of” so that the statement x∈A means that x is an element of the set A. … For example, if A is the set {♢,♡,♣,♠}, then ♡∈A but △∉A (where the symbol ∉ **means “not an element of”**).

Set inclusion X ⊆ Y means **every element of X is an element of Y** ; X is a subset of Y . Set equality X = Y means every element of X is an element of Y and every element of Y is an element of X.
