Miscellaneous Exercise

*NCERT solution of
chapter 1, class 11, miscellaneous exercise, Union of sets, intersection of
sets, complement of sets and Venn diagram of sets, word problems on sets.*

Q1) A = {x : x ∈ R and x satisfy x^{2}-8x+12 = 0}

B = {2, 4, 6}, C = {2, 4, 6, 8, ....}, D = {6}

Solution: x^{2 }- 8x + 12 = 0

⇒ x^{2 }- 6x - 2x + 12 = 0

⇒ x(x - 6) -2(x - 6) = 0

⇒ (x - 2)(x - 6) = 0

⇒ x = 2, x = 6

⇒ A = {2, 6}

A ⊂ B, A ⊂ C, B ⊂ C, D ⊂ A, D ⊂ B, D ⊂ C

Q2) (i) If x ∈ A and A∈B, then x ∈ B

Ans: False Statement

Reason: If A = {1,2}, B={{1,2}, 3}

Here 1∈A and A ∈ B but 1 ∉ B

So given statement is false

(ii) If A ⊂ B and B ∈ C, then A ∈ C

Let A = {1}, B={1, 2}, C ={{1, 2}, 3}

Here A ⊂ B and B ∈ C, But 1∉ C

So this is a false statement

(iii) If A ⊂ B and B ⊂ C, then A ⊂ C

Ans: True Statement

Explanation: Let A={1}, B={1,2}, C = {1,2,3}

Here 1 ∈ A and 1 ∈ B ⇒ A ⊂ B .... (1)

1, 2 ∈ B and 1,2 ∈ C ⇒ B ⊂ C ....... (2)

From (1) and (2) we get A ⊂ C

So this statement is true

(iv) If A ⊄ B and B ⊄ C, then A ⊄ C

Ans: False Statement

Let A = {1,2}, B = {2,3}, {1,2,3}

Here A⊄B and B ⊄C but A⊂C

So this statement is False

(v) If x ∈ A and A⊄B, then x∈ B

Ans: False Statement

Explanation: Let A = {1,2}, B = {2,3}

Here 1 ∈A and 1∉B ⇒ A⊄B

⇒ x ∈ A ⇒ x ∉ B

So given statement is false

(vi) If A ⊂ B and x ∉B, then x ∉ A

Ans: True Statement

Explanation: Let A = {1, 2}, B = {1, 2, 3}

Here 1, 2 ∈ A and 1, 2 ∈ B ⇒ A ⊂ B

Here 4 ∉ B ⇒ 4 ∉ A

So this statement is true

Question 3: If A ⋃ B = A ⋃ C and A ⋂ B = A ⋂ C then prove that B = C

Solution: A ⋃ B = A ⋃ C ...... (Given)

Taking B ⋂ on both side

B ⋂(A áˆ€ B) = B ⋂(A ⋃ C)

B = (B ⋂ A) áˆ€ (B ⋂ C)

= (A ⋂ B) áˆ€ (B ⋂ C)

= (A ⋂ C) ⋃ (B ⋂ C) (∵ A ⋂ B = A ⋂ C) ...... (1)

A áˆ€ B = A ⋃ C ...... (Given)

Taking C ⋂ on both side

C⋂(A ⋃ B) = C⋂(A ⋃ C)

(C⋂A) ⋃ (C⋂B) = C

C = (A⋂C) ⋃ (B⋂C) ....... (2)

From (1) and (2) we get

B = C

8. Show that for any sets A and B,

(i) A = ( A ⋂ B ) ⋃ ( A – B ) (ii) A ⋃ ( B – A ) = ( A ⋃ B )

Solution (i)

A = ( A ⋂ B ) ⋃ ( A – B )

RHS = ( A ⋂ B ) ⋃ ( A – B )

=( A ⋂ B ) ⋃ ( A ⋂ B' )

= A⋂(B⋃B')

= A ⋂ U = A = LHS

Solution (ii) A ⋃ ( B – A ) = ( A ⋃ B )

LHS = A ⋃ ( B – A )

= A ⋃ ( B – A )

= A ⋃ ( B⋂ A' )

= (A ⋃B) ⋂ (A ⋃ A')

= (A ⋃B) ⋂ U

= (A ⋃B) = RHS

9. Using properties of sets, show that

(i) A ⋃ ( A ⋂ B ) = A
(ii) A ⋂ ( A ⋃ B ) =
A.

Solution: (i) A ⋃ ( A ⋂ B ) = A

LHS = A ⋃ ( A ⋂ B )

= (A⋃A) ⋂ (A ⋃ B)

= A ⋂ (A ⋃ B) = A = RHS

Solution: (ii) A ⋂ ( A ⋃ B ) = A.

LHS = A ⋂ ( A ⋃ B )

= (A⋂A) ⋃ A⋂B

= A⋃ A⋂B = A = RHS

10. Show that A ⋂ B = A ⋂ C need not imply B = C.

Solution: Let A = {1,2}, B = {1,3}, C = {1, 4}

Here A ⋂ B = {1} and A ⋂ C = {1}

⇒ A ⋂ B = A ⋂ C but B ≠ C

11. Let A and B be sets. If A ⋂ X = B
⋂ X = Ñ„ and A ⋃ X = B
⋃ X for
some set X, show that A = B.

(Hints A = A ⋂ ( A ⋃ X ) , B = B ⋂ ( B ⋃ X )
and use Distributive law )

Solution:

Given: A ⋂ X = B ⋂ X = Ñ„ and A ⋃ X = B ⋃ X

To Prove : A = B

Proof: A ⋃ X = B ⋃ X ........ (Given)

Taking A⋂ on both side we get

A⋂(A ⋃ X) = A⋂(B ⋃ X)

A = (A⋂B)⋃(A⋂X)

= (A⋂B)⋃ Ñ„ .... (∵ A ⋂ X = Ñ„)

= (A⋂B)

⇒ A⊂B ......... (1)

A ⋃ X = B ⋃ X ........ (Given)

Taking B⋂ on both side we get

B⋂(A ⋃ X) = B⋂(B ⋃ X)

(B⋂A) ⋃ B⋂X = B

(B⋂A) ⋃Ñ„ = B

(A⋂B) = B

⇒ B⊂A ......... (2)

From (1) and (2) we get A = B

12. Find sets A, B and C such that A ⋂ B, B ⋂ C and
A ⋂ C are
non-empty sets and A ⋂ B ⋂ C =

Solution: Let A = {1,2}, B = {2,3}, C = {1,3}

A ⋂ B = {1,2} ⋂{2,3}= {2}

B ⋂ C = {2,3} ⋂{1,3}={3}

A ⋂ C = {1,2}⋂{1,3} = {1}

A ⋂ B ⋂ C = {1,2}⋂ {2,3}⋂ {1,3} = Ñ„

13. 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?

Solution: Total Students = 600 ⇒ n(U) = 600

No. of students taking Tea = 150 ⇒ n(T) = 150

No. of students taking Coffee = 225 ⇒ n(C) = 225

No. of students taking both Tea & Coffee = 100 ⇒ n(T⋂C) = 100

n(T⋃C) = n((T) + n(C) + n(T⋂C)

= 150 + 225 - 100 = 375 - 100 = 275

No. of students taking neither tea nor coffee

n(T' ⋂ C') = n(T⋃C)'

= n(U) - (T⋃C)

= 600 -275 = 325

14. 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?

Solution

n(H) = 100, n(E) = 50, n(H⋂E) = 25

n(H⋃E)= n(H) + n(E) - n(H⋂E)

= 100 + 50 - 25

= 125

15. In a survey of 60 people, it was found that 25 people
read newspaper H, 26 read newspaper T, 26 read newspaper I, 9 read both H and
I, 11 read both H and T, 8 read both T and I, 3 read all three newspapers.
Find:

(i) the number of people who read at least one of the
newspapers.

(ii) the number of people who read exactly one newspaper.

Solution: Total People = 60

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

16. In a survey it was found that 21 people liked product A, 26 liked product B and 29 liked product C. If 14 people liked products A and B, 12 people liked products C and A, 14 people liked products B and C and 8 liked all the three products. Find how many liked product C only.

Solution : n(A) = 21, n(B) = 26, n(C) = 29,
