# Set Theory: Types of Sets, Unions and Intersections

TLDRThis video explains sets and set theory concepts used in algebra. It covers types of sets like interval notation for solutions to inequalities. It explains union and intersection of sets with examples. It also covers special sets like the empty set and sets with no solution. Overall it provides an introductory overview of set theory applied to algebra.

###### Takeaways

- ๐ Sets can represent solutions to inequalities using interval notation.
- ๐ The domain of a function is the set of all real numbers if any number can be plugged in.
- ๐ Parentheses () imply non-inclusivity in a set, while brackets [] imply inclusivity.
- ๐ก Intervals that include positive or negative infinity are called infinite intervals.
- ๐ The intersection of sets contains elements common to both, while the union contains all elements from either set.
- ๐ฌ The empty set (null set) contains no elements and is denoted by the Greek letter phi.
- ๐ฎโ๐จ Solutions to systems of inequalities can be depicted using set notation and intersections.
- ๐ง Interval notation with parentheses and brackets accurately reflects solution set boundaries.
- ๐ Sets don't have to be continuous intervals; they can just list elements separated by commas.
- โ๏ธ The domain and solutions sets for functions and inequalities can be represented using set notation.

###### Q & A

### What notation is used to represent the set of all real numbers?

-The set of all real numbers is represented by the notation (-โ, โ).

### How are solutions to inequalities represented?

-Solutions to inequalities can be represented using interval notation like (3, โ) to show all numbers greater than 3.

### What is the difference between an open and closed interval?

-An open interval uses parentheses to exclude endpoints, like (2, 5), while a closed interval uses brackets to include endpoints, like [2, 5].

### What symbol represents the intersection of two sets?

-The intersection of two sets is represented by an upside-down capital U symbol: โฉ

### What is the empty set or null set?

-The empty set, also called the null set, is represented by the Greek letter phi (ฯ). It contains no elements at all.

### How can set theory be used to represent solutions to systems of inequalities?

-The intersection of the solution sets of each inequality in the system represents the solution set for the overall system.

### What notation represents a set with discrete, non-continuous elements?

-Curly brackets {} are used to represent a set with individual, non-continuous elements separated by commas.

### What is an infinite interval?

-An infinite interval includes either positive or negative infinity as an endpoint, like (-โ, 5].

### What is the union of two sets?

-The union of two sets, represented by โช, includes all elements present in either of the sets.

### How can absolute value inequalities be solved using set notation?

-The solution set of |x| > 2 is the union of two intervals: (-โ, -2) and (2, โ).
