Thanks for the review. I have a few questions:
6c) (Composite) D Intersect E — I got the answer to be (5,6) instead of the empty set. Doesn’t that little piece of everything but D interest with E?

8d) I understand the union. Basically for UAa, I got = {[3,6],4} x [3,4], which is the horizontal line between x = 3 & x = 6 on the plane at y = 4, all between the y = 3 and y = 4. Ie, [3,6]x[3×4]. I thought the intersection would then be the horizontal line between x=3 and x=6 at y=4, which I interpreted as [3×6]x {4}. But I see the answer is the reverse, {4}x[3,6]. Am I thinking of the graph wrong?

10a) For the truth table, under Q^~P, I got FFTF, when Q is TFTF and ~P is FFTT. Right? I guess this then changes the rest of the truth table.

Thank you!!

Hi Patty,

I’ll take them one at a time – here goes:

6c) YES, the answer is indeed (5,6). I’ve updated the answer key.

8d) Start with the union: First, notice that for any individual alpha, the set A_alpha consists of two vertical lines, one located at x=alpha and the other at x=4, stretching from y=3 to y=4. The union will consist of all vertical lines, at every x location between x=3 and x=6, each line stretching from y=3 to y=4. This means we have included everything in the rectangle stretching from x=3 to x=6, and y=3 to y=4 — that is, the rectangle [3,6]x[3,4]. (NOTE: the one particular vertical line located at x=4 shows up in ALL the sets — it happens to lie in the middle of this rectangle, and gets included just like all the others).

For the intersection, the only thing that each of the sets A_alpha have in common is the single vertical line located at x=4, stretching from y=3 to y=4. Since the x value is the same for each of these vertical lines (x=4), and the y ranges from 3 to 4, for the intersection we get the vertical line {4}x[3,4].

10a) YES, you are quite right – and my truth table had corresponding errors throughout. I believe I’ve fixed it now, but don’t hesitate to check me.

Thanks for the great work – let me know if any of these need further clarification.
