## Karnataka 1st PUC Maths Question Bank Chapter 1 Sets

Question 1.
Define a set.
A collection of well-defined objects is called a set. The objects in a set are called its members or elements. We denote sets by capital letters A, B, C, X. Y, Z, etc. If ‘a’ is an element of a set A, we write, a ∈ A, which means that a belongs to A or that a is an element of If ‘a ’ does not belong to A, we write, a ∉ A

Question 2.
How to describe a set?
There are two methods of describing a set.
1. Roster or tabular form: In the roster form, we list all the members of the set within brackets { } and separate them by commas.

2. Set-Builder form: In the set-builder form, we list the property or properties satisfied by all the elements of the set.

• N: The set of all-natural numbers.
• Z: The set of all integers.
• Q: The set of all rational numbers.
• M: The set of real numbers.
• Z+: The set of positive integers.
• Q+: Set of positive rational numbers.
• R+: The set of positive real numbers. Question 3.

Question 16.
Define equal sets.
Two sets A and B are said to be equal if they have exactly the same elements and we write A = B. Question 17.
In the following, state whether A = B or not.

(v) A = {x: x is a prime numbers ≤ 6},
B = {x: x is a prime factors of 30}.
(i) A = B because A and B have same elements though in different order which is immaterial.
(ii) A≠B ∵ 12 ∈ A but 12 ∉ B
(iii) A = B ∵ A and B have same elements
(iv) A≠B ∵ 15 ∈ B
(v) A = {2,3,5}, B = {2,3,5} ∴ A = B.

Question 18.
Are the following pairs of sets equal? Give reasons.
(i) A = {2,3}, B = {x : x is solution of x2+5x + 6 = 0}.
(ii) A = {x : x is a letter in the word FOLLOW}.
B={y: y is a letter in the word WOLF}.
(i) x2 + 5x + 6 = 0
⇒ (x + 3)(x + 2) = 0
∴ x = -3,-2
∴B = {-3,-2}- But A = {2,3}
∴ A≠B(ii) Given sets are A = {F, O, L, W}
B = {W,0,L,F}
∴ A = B
∵ A and B have same elements.

A set A is said to be subset of set B if every element of A is also an element of B, and we write, A ⊆ B

• If A ⊆ B then B is called a superset of A, and we write, B ⊇ A
• If A ⊆ B and A ≠ B then A is called a proper subset of B.
• If there exists even a single element in A which is not in B, then A is not a subset of B and we write, A⊄B

Given n(X∪Y) = 18, n(X) = 8, n(Y) = 15
But n(X∪Y) = n(X) + n(Y) – n(X ∩Y) n(X∩Y)
= 8 + 15-18 = 5.

Question 77.
In a group of 400 people, 250 can speak Hindi and 200 can speak English. How many people can speak both Hindi and English?
Let H = set of people speaking Hindi;
E = set of people speaking English.
Then n(H∪E) = 400; n(H) = 250; n(E) = 200
∴ n(H∩E) = n(H) = n(E)-n(H∪E)
= 250 + 200 – 400 = 50
Hence, 50 people can speak both Hindi and English. Question 78.

In a group of 70 people, 37 like coffee, 52 like tea and each person likes atleast one of the two drinks. How many people like both coffee and tea?
Let C = set of people who like coffee
T = set of people who like tea
Then n(C∪T) = 70; n(C) = 37; n(T) = 52 n(C∩T)
= n(C) + n(J)-n(C∪T)
= 37 + 52-70 =19

Let C = set of people who like cricket
T = set of people who like tennis.
Then n(C∪T) = 65; n(C) = 40; n(C∩T) = 10
∴ n(T) = n{C∪T) + n(C∩T)-n(C)
= 65 + 10-40 = 35
Number of people who like tennis only
n(T-C) = n(T)-n(C∩T)
= 35-10 = 25

Question 82.
In a committee, 50 people speak French, 20 speak Spanish and 10 speak both Spanish and French. How many speak atleast one of these two languages?
Let F = set of people speaking French
S = set of people speaking Spanish.
Then n(S) = 20, n(F) = 50 n(F∩S) = 10
∴ n(F∪S) = n(S) + n(F)-n(F∩S)
= 20 + 50-10 = 60
∴ 60 people speak French or Spanish or both.Question 83.

Then, n(M∪P) = 20, n(M) = 12, n(M∩P) = 4
n(P) = n(M∪P) + n(M∩P)- n(M)
= 20 + 4-12 = 12.

Question 84.

Let C = set of students who like cricket F = set of students who like football.
Then n(C uf) = 35, n(C) = 24, n(F)
= 16 n(C n F) = n(C) + n(F) – n(C u F)
= 24 + 16-35 = 5
∴ 5 Students like to play both games.

Question 85.
In a survey of 400 students in a school, 100 were listed as taking apple juice, 150 as taking orange juice and 75 were listed as taking both apple as well as orange juice. Find how many students were taking neither apple juice nor orange juice.
Let U = set of surveyed students
A = set of students taking apple juice
B = set of students taking orange juice.
Then n(∪) = 400; n(A) = 100; n(B) = 150;
and n(A∩B) = 75
Now n(A’∩B’) = n(A∪B)’
= n(∪) – n(A∪B)
= n(∪)-n(A)-n(B) + n(A∩S)
= 400-100-150 + 75 = 225
∴ 225 students were taking neither apple juice nor orange juice. Question 86.
In a survey of 600 students in a school. 150 students were found to be taking tea and 225 taking coffee, 100 were taking both tea and coffee. Find how many students were taking neither tea nor coffee?
Let U = set of students in a school.
A = set of students taking tea
B = set of students taking coffee
Then n(∪) = 600; n(A) = 150; n(B) = 225; n(A∩B) = 100
∴ n(Au B) = n(A) + n(B)-n(A∩B)
= 150 + 225-100 =275
Now n(A’∩B’) = n(A∪B)
= n(∪)-n(A∪5)
= 600-275 = 325
∴ 325 students were taking neither tea nor coffee.

Question 87.
In a group of students, 100 students know Hindi, 50 know English and 25 know both. Each of the students knows either Hindi or English. How many students are there in the group?
Let H = set of students, who know Hindi
E = set of students, who know English
Then n(H) = 100; n(E) = 50 and n(H∩E) = 25.
∴ n(H∪E) = n(H) + n(E)-n(H∩E)
= 100 + 50-25 = 125
Hence, 125 students are there in the group.

Question 88.
There are 200 individuals with a skin disorder, 120 had been exposed to the chemical C1, 50 to chemical C2 and 30 to both the chemicals C1 and C2. Find the number of individuals exposed to
(i) Chemical C1 but not chemical C2
(ii) Chemical C2 but not chemical C1
(iii) Chemical C1 or chemical C2.
Let U = set of individuals suffering from the skin disorder.
A = set of individuals exposed to the chemical C1.
B = set of individuals exposed to the chemical C2.
Then, n(u) = 200, n(A) = 120, n(B) = 50 and n(A∩B) = 30 (i) From the Venn diagram, we have
A = (A-B)∪(A∩B)
∴ n(A) = n(A -B) + n(A∩B)
A – B and A∩B are disjoint
∴ n(A -B) = n(A) – n(A∩B)
= 120-30 = 90
Hence, 90 individuals exposed to chemical C1 but not to chemical C2.

(ii) Similarly, B = (B – A) ∪ (A∩B)
n(B) = n(B – A) + n(A∩B)
∵ (B-A)∩(A∩B) = φ
∴ n(B-A) = n(B)-n(A∩B)
= 50-30 = 20
Hence, 20 individuals exposed to chemical C2 but not to chemical C1.

(iii) We have, n(A∪5) = n(A) + n(B) – n(A∩B)
= 120 + 50-30 = 140
Hence, 140 individuals exposed either chemical C1 or chemical C2. Question 89.
A market research group conducted a survey of 1000 consumers and reported that 720 consumers like product A and 450 consumers like product B, what is the least number that must have liked both products?
Let U = set of consumers questioned
S = set of consumers who like product A.
T = set of consumers who like the product B.
Then, n(u) = 1000, n(S) = 720, n(T) = 450
∴ n(S∪T) = n(S) + n(T)-n(S∩T)
= 720 + 450 – n(S∩T)
= 1170-n(S∩T).
Therefore, n(S∪T) is maximum when n(S∩T) is least.
But S∪T⊂U =n(S∪T)≤n(U) = 1000
So, maximum value of n(S∪T) is 1000. Thus, least value of n(S∩T) is 170.
Hence, the least number of consumers who liked both products is 170.

Question 90.
Out of 500 car owners investigated, 400 owned car A and 200 owned car B, 50 owned both A and B cars. Is this data correct?
Let U = set of car owners investigated
M = set of persons who owned car A
S = set of persons who owned car B.
Then n(u) = 500, n(M) = 400, n(S) = 200 and n(S∩M) = 50
∴ n(S∪M) = n(S) + n(M)-n(S∩M)
= 200 + 400-50 = 550
But S∪M⊂U⇒n(5∪M)≤n(U)
This is contradiction. So, the given data is incorrect.

Question 91.

Then, n(H) = 25, n(T) = 26, n(I) = 26, n(H∩I) = 9
n(H∩T) = 11, n(T∩I) = 8, n(H∩T∩I) = 3(i) Number of people who read atleast one newspaper
n(H∪T∪T) = n(H) + n(T) + n(I)
-n(H∩T)-n(T∩I)-n(I∩H) + n(H∩T∩I)
= 25 + 26 + 26-9-11-8 + 3 =52(ii) Number of people who read exactly one paper Question 93.
