c. 10

Question 2.

The number of elements in the power set of the first is 48 more than the total number of elements in the power set of the second. Then find the values of m and n ?

Answer:

P (set 1) = 2^{m
}P (set 2) = 2^{n}

2^{m} – 2^{n}= 48

2^{m}-2^{n}= 64-16

2^{m }– 2^{n}= 2^{6}-2^{4} ;It implies m = 6, n=4

Question 20.

In a school with 727 students 600 students are enrolled for mathematics and 173 students are enrolled in both mathematics and physics. How many students are enrolled in

i. Physics

ii. Physics only

Answer:

Let M be the set of students enrolled in Mathematics and P the set of all students enrolled in Physics.

Given n(M ∪ P) = 727, n(M) = 600 n(M∩P)= 17

Using n(M ∪ P) = n(M) +n (P) – n(M∩P)

727 = 600 + n(P) -173

n(P) = 727 -600 +173 = 300 and

n(P ∩M’) = n(P) – n (PM)

= 300-173 = 127

i. Number of students enrolled in Physics = 300

Answer:

Question 5.

A = {1,2,4,5,6, 7, 8,9}, B = {1,3, ,5,6,8} C = {5,6,7,8,10,11}. Find

i. A-B.

ii. A – (B ∪C) and verify

iii. A- (B∪C) =(A – B)∩(A – C)

Answer:

i. A-B= {1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9} – {1,3,5,6,8} = {2,4,7,9}

ii. A -(B ∪ C)

= {1,2,4, 5,6,7, 8,9} – {1, 3, 5,6,7, 8, 10,11} = {2,4,9}

iii. A-(B∪C) = {2,4,9}………………… (1)

A-C = {1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9} – { 5,6,7,8, 10,11} = {1,2,4,9}

A – B = {2,4,7,9} (using (iii) above)

∴ (A-B)∩ (A-C)= {2,4,7,9} ∩ {1,2,4,9} = {2,4,9}………………… (2)

From(1)&(2),

A-(B∪C) = (A-B)∩(A-C)

Question 6.

i. In a group of 70 people, 37 like coffee, 52 like tea and each person like atleast one of the two drinks. How many people like both coffee and tea?

ii. In a group of 65 people, 40 like Cricket, 10 like both Cricket and Tennis. How many like tennis only and not Cricket? How many like Tennis ?

Answer:

i. Let A = Set of people like coffee and

B = Set of people who like tea Then, A∪B = Set of people who like atleast one of the two drinks and

A∩B = Set of people who like both the drinks.

Given, n(A) = 37, n(B) = 52, n(A ∪B) = 70 We know that,

n(A∪B) = n(A) + n(B)-n(A∩B)

70 = 37 + 52-n(A∩B) n(A∩B) = 89 -70 = 19

Hence, 19 people like both coffee and tea.

ii. Let C be the set of the people who like Cricket and T be the set of people who like Tennis.

Then, n (C ∪ T) = 65

n (C) = 40 and n(C∩T)= 10 We know that, n(C∪T) = n(C) + n(T) -n(C∩T)

65=40 + n(T)-10 n(T) = 65 -40+10 = 35

Number of people who like only Tennis = n(T) – n(C ∩T)

= 35-10 = 25

Hence, number of people, who like Tennis only and not cricket is 25 and number of people who like tennis is 35.

Question 7.

a. In a group of400 people, 250 can speak Hindi and 200 can speak English. How many can speak both Hindi and English ?

b. Let F_{1 } be the set of parallelogram, F_{2} be the set of rectangles, F_{3} be the set of rhombus, F_{4}be the set of squares and F_{3 }be the set of trapeziums in a plane. Then, show that F_{t} is equal to union of all sets.

Answer:

a. Let H denote the set of people who speak Hindi and E denote the set of people who speak English.

Given, n(H) = 250, n(E) = 200

n(H∪E) = 400 We know that,

n(H∪E) = n(H) + n(E)-n(H ∩ E)

400 = 250 + 200 – n( H ∩ E)

n(H∩E) = 450-400 = 50

Hence, 50 people can speak Hindi and English.

b. Given, F_{1 }= The set of parallelograms

F_{2} = The set of rectangles

F_{3} = The set of rhombus

F_{4} = The set of squares

F_{5} = The set of trapeziums

By definition of parallelogram, opposite sides are equal and parallel. In rectangles, rhombus and squares, all have opposite sides equal and parallel, therefore

Question 6.

In a survey of 400 students in a school, 100 were listed as drinking apple juice, 150 as drinking orange juice and 75 were listed as both drinking apple as well as orange juice. Find how many students were drinking neither apple juice nor orange juice,

Answer:

n(U)=400. n(A)=100, n(B)= 150, n(A ∩ B)=75

Now n(A’∩B’)=n((A∪B) = n(U)-n{A∪B)

= n(U) – n(A) – n(B) + n(A∩B) = 225

Question 7.

Find the intersection of the following pairs of sets and which pairs are disjoint sets?

Answer:

i. (A∩B) = {4} ≠φ

ii. (CD)={e}≠φ

iii. (E∩F) = φ. Here E and F are disjoint sets

Question 8.

A market research group conducted a survey of 1000 consumers and reported that 720 consumers liked product A and 450 consumers liked product B.What is the least number that must have liked both products?

Answer:

n(U) = 1000, n(S) = 720, n(T)= 450 n(S∪T) = n(S) + n(T) – n(S∩T)

⇒1170-n(S∩T), n(S ∩ T) is least when n(S u T) is maximum.

But S∪Tc= U⇒n(S∪T)<n(U) =1000.

So minimum value of n(S∪ T) is 1000.

Thus the least value of n(S ∩T) is 170.

Question 9.

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?

Answer:

n(U) = 500, n(M) = 400, n(S) = 200 and

n(S ∪M) = 50. Then

n(S ∪ M) = n(S)+n(M) – n(S ∩M)= 550

But (S ∪ M) c U ⇒ n(S∪M) < n(U) = 500

This is a contradiction. So the given data is incorrect.
