Examples: (1) A = {tiger, lion, puma, cheetah, leopard, cougar, ocelot} (this is a set of large species of cats) (2) A = {a, b, c, ..., z} (this is a set consisting of the lowercase letters of the alphabet) (3) A = {-1, -2, -3, ...} (this is a set of the negative numbers)
can you give an example of set in numbers
Example: What is the set of all even whole numbers between 0 and 10?
Solution: Q = {2, 4, 6, 8} Note that the use of the word 'between' means that the range of numbers given is not inclusive. As a result, the numbers 0 and 10 are not listed as elements in this set.
