A set in mathematics refers to a collection of distinct objects. It is very important in mathematics to learn about the algebra and axioms relating to Sets. In this chapter, we will learn about mathematical operations and also about terminologies related to sets. So, let’s study the topics below.

FAQs on Sets

Question 1: Explain what is a set with examples?

Answer: A set refers to a group or collection of objects or numbers. Experts consider it as an entity unto itself. For example, the set of apples on tree, the set of all computers in lab, and the set of all irrational numbers between 0 and 5.

Question 2: In set theory, what are the various types of sets?

Answer: The various types of sets in set theory are finite set, infinite set, null set, equal set, proper set, subset, proper set, improper set, and singleton set.

Question 3: Explain the use of set?

Answer: Sets are very useful in representing, collecting and studying similar data. Data is a very important part of the contemporary world. All the changes taking place today are driven by data.

Question 4: Can we say that set theory is algebra?

Answer: The algebra of sets refers to the development of the basic characteristics of set operations as well as set relations. Such characteristics give us an important insight into the nature of sets. Set theory certainly happens to be the algebra of the set-theoretic operations of union as well as the relations of equality and inclusion.
