### Exercise 1.4

1. Find the union of each of the following pairs of sets.

(i)\[{\mathbf{x}} = \{ {\mathbf{1}},{\mathbf{3}},{\mathbf{5}}\} {\text{ }}{\mathbf{Y}} = \{ {\mathbf{1}},{\mathbf{2}},{\mathbf{3}}\} \]

Ans: $X = \{ 1,3,5\} Y = \{ 1,2,3\} $

$X \cup Y = \{ 1,2,3,5\} $

$A \cup B = \{ 1,2,4,5,3,6,9,12 \ldots \} $

$\therefore A \cup B = \{ x:x = 1,2,4,5$ or a multiple of 3$\} $

(iv) A= {x : x is a natural number and $1 < x \leqslant 6\} = \{ 2,3,4,5,6\} $

$B = \{ x:x$ is a natural number and $6 < x < 10\} = \{ 7,8,9\} $

Ans: $A \cup B = \{ 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9\} $

$\therefore A \cup B = \{ x:x \in N$ and $1 < x < 10\} $

(v) $A = \{ 1,2,3\} ,B = \phi $

Ans: $A = \{ 1,2,3\} ,B = \phi $

$A \cup B = \{ 1,2,3\} $

(i) $\{ 1,2,3,4\} $ and $\{ x:x$ is a natural number and \[4 \leqslant x \leqslant 6\} \]

Ans: $\{ 1,2,3,4\} $

$\{ x:x$ is a natural number and $4 \leqslant x \leqslant 6\} = \{ 4,5,6\} $

Now, $\{ 1,2,3,4\} \cap \{ 4,5,6\} = \{ 4\} $

Therefore, this pair of sets is not disjoint.

12. State whether each of the following statement is true or false. Justify you Ans:

(i) {2, 3, 4, 5} and {3, 6} are disjoint sets.
