**Q1. Write the following sets in the roaster from
**

**Q2. Write the following sets in the roaster form:**

**Q3. If Y = {x\x is a positive factor of the number 2 ^{P}(2^{P} – 1), where 2^{P} – 1 is a prime number}. Write Y in the roaster form.**

**Sol:** Y- {x | x is a positive factor of the number 2^{P-1} (2^{P} – 1), where 2^{P} – 1 is a prime number}.

So, the factors of 2^{P-1} are 1,2,2^{2},2^{3},…, 2^{P- 1}.

Y= {1,2,2^{2},2^{3}, …,2^{p-1},2^{p}-1}

**Q4. State which of the following statements are true and which are false. Justify your answer.**

**(i) 35 ∈ {x | x has exactly four positive factors}.**

**(ii) 128 e {y | the sum of all the positive factorsofy is 2y}**

**(iii) 3∉{x|x ^{4}-5x^{3} + 2jc^{2}-112x + 6 = 0}**

**(iv) 496 ∉{y | the sum of all the positive factors of y is 2y}.**

**Sol:**(i) The factors of 35 are 1, 5, 7 and 35. So, 35 is an element of the set. Hence, statement is true.

(ii) The factors of 128 hre 1,2,4, 8, 16, 32, 64 and 128.

Sum of factors = 1 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 16 + 32 + 64 + 128 = 255 * 2 x 128 Hence, statement is false.

(iii) We have, x^{4} – 5x^{3} + 2x^{2} – 1 12jc + 6 = 0 Forx = 3, we have

(3)^{4} – 5(3)^{3} + 2(3)^{2} – 112(3) + 6 = 0

=> 81 – 135 + 18-336 + 6 = 0

=> -346 = 0, which is not true.

So 3 is not an element of the set

Hence, statement is true.

(iv) 496 = 2^{4} x 31

So, the factors of 496 are 1,2,4, 8, 16,31,62, 124,248 and 496.

Sum of factors = 1 +2 + 4 + 8+ 16 + 31+62+124 + 248 + 496 = 992 = 2(496)

So, 496 is the element of the set Hence, statement is false

**Q5. Given L, = {1,2, 3,4},M= {3,4, 5, 6} and N= {1,3,5}**

**Verify that L-(M⋃N) = (L-M)⋂(L-N)**

**Sol:** Given L,= {1,2, 3,4}, M= {3,4,5,6} and N= {1,3,5}

M⋃N= {1,3,4, 5,6}

L – (M⋃N) = {2}

Now, L-M= {1, 2} and L-N= {2,4}

{L-M) ⋂{L-N)= {2}

Hence, L-{M⋃N) = {L-M) ⋂ (L-N).

**Q6. If A and B are subsets of the universal set U, then show that**

**(i) A⊂ A∪ B**

**(ii) A⊂B⟺A∪B = B**

**(iii) (A∩B)⊂ A**

**Q7. Given that N= {1,2,3, …, 100}. Then write**

**(i) the subset of N whose elements are even numbers.**

**(ii) the subset of N whose element are perfect square numbers.**

**Sol: **We have, N= {1,2, 3,4,…, 100}

(i) subset of N whose elements are even numbers = {2,4, 6, 8,…, 100}

(ii) subset of N whose elements are perfect square = {1,4, 9, 16, 25, 36,49, 64, 81, 100}
