Types of  Sets

We at ask-math believe that educational material should be free for everyone. Please use the content of this website for in-depth understanding of the concepts. Additionally, we have created and posted videos on our youtube.

We also offer One to One / Group Tutoring sessions / Homework help for Mathematics from Grade 4th to 12th for algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus for US, UK, Europe, South east Asia and UAE students.

Affiliations with Schools & Educational institutions are also welcome.

We will be happy to post videos as per your requirements also. Do write to us.

Types of Sets are explained below :

1) Singleton sets: A set which contains only one element is known as Singleton set.

Examples :

1) If P = { x | x is a prime number 10 and 12 } then P = {11}

As we observe that there is only one element in set P.
n(P) = 1

so set P is a singleton set.

2) If A = { x| x ∉ 3 < x < 5 } then

A = { x| x ∉ 3 < x < 5 }

A = { 4}

As the set A contains only one element so set A is a singleton set.

2) Finite sets : The sets in which number of elements are limited and can be counted, such sets are called finite sets.

Example :

If A= { x | x is a prime number, x<10 } then A= { 2,3,5,7}

Here then there are only 4 elements which satisfies the given condition.

Thus, set A is a finite set.

3) Infinite sets : The sets in which number of elements are unlimited and can not be counted, such sets are called infinite sets.

Example :

set C = { 10,20,30,40,50,60,…}

As the number of elements in set C are infinity (uncountable)
Thus, set C is an infinite set.

4) Empty set : A set which has no element in it and is denoted by φ
( Greek letter ‘phi’)

Thus n(φ) = 0

It is also known as null set or void set .

Example :

set A ={ 18 < x < 19}

So between 18 and 19 there is no element.

Thus,set A is an empty set.

Russia-Ukraine crisis update - 3rd Mar 2022

The UN General assembly voted at an emergency session to demand an immediate halt to Moscow's attack on Ukraine and withdrawal of Russian troops.
