decimal as quotient of integers

0.5=5/10=½

0.75=75/100=¾

decimal as quotient of integers TIP

denom=decimal place

0.5=tenth= 5/10

0.75=100th= 75/100

0.777=1000th= 777/1000

repeating decimal as quotient of integers TIP

denom=decimal place in 9's

0.5=tenth= 5/10-1= 5/9

0.75=100th= 75/100-1= 75/99

0.777=1000th= 777/1000-1= 777/999

what is ∉?

"not an element of"

11 ∉ {2,4,6,...,30}

13 ∉ {a,b,c,...,z}

define equal & equivalent

equal=exact

•ignore duplicate elements

equivalent=same # of elements

SUBSETS

define ⊂

"is a proper subset"

A={1,3} ⊂ B={1,3,5}

A is a proper subset of B

NOT exact ∅ ⊂ ⊆ {2,4,6}

SUBSETS

define ⊆

"is a subset of"

A={cat} ⊆ B={black cat}

A is a subset of B

NOT exact { } ⊆ ∅

{man, woman} ⊆ {person}

SUBSETS

define
"is NOT a subset of"

A={p,r,o,f} __⊄__ B={r,o,f}

A is NOT a subset of B

{ } __⊄__ {1,2,3} {2,4,6} __⊄__ ∅

Set & subsets TIPS

•must have { }

•watch for words "set" or "#"

SUBSETS
