## In which condition intersection of two sets is equal to the union of two sets?

There are not three consecutive statement. There is an equivalence between two equalities. You do the former by showing that if the intersection equals the union then every element that is in A must be in B, and by symmetry that all in B must be in A.

**What is the union of two equal sets?**

The union of two sets contains all the elements contained in either set (or both sets). The union is notated A ⋃ B. The intersection of two sets contains only the elements that are in both sets.

### What is the intersection of two sets?

The intersection of two or more given sets is the set of elements that are common to each of the given sets. The intersection of sets is denoted by the symbol ‘∩’. In the case of independent events, we generally use the multiplication rule, P(A ∩ B) = P( A )P( B ).

**Can intersection and union be equal?**

14.4 Union and intersection (EMA7Z) The union is written as A∪B or “A or B”. The intersection of two sets is a new set that contains all of the elements that are in both sets. In the final column the union, A∪B, is equal to A and the intersection, A∩B, is equal to B since B is fully contained in A.

#### Is the empty set a subset of the empty set?

No set is a proper subset of itself. The empty set is a subset of every set. The empty set is a proper subset of every set except for the empty set.

**What is the intersection of two equal sets?**

Intersection of two given sets is the largest set which contains all the elements that are common to both the sets. To find the intersection of two given sets A and B is a set which consists of all the elements which are common to both A and B. The symbol for denoting intersection of sets is ‘∩’.

## Is the empty set equal to a set containing the empty set?

The power set of a set is defined to be the set which contains all of the subsets of the set and nothing more. The only subset of the empty set is the empty set itself. Hence, the power set of the empty set is the set containing only the empty set.

**What is empty set intersection empty set?**

Intersection With the Empty Set The empty set is the set with no elements. If there are no elements in at least one of the sets we are trying to find the intersection of, then the two sets have no elements in common. In other words, the intersection of any set with the empty set will give us the empty set.
