Q:
# In the Venn diagram, consider U = {whole numbers 1-100}Let A represent numbers that are perfect squares B represents numbers that are perfect cubes and c represents numbers that are perfect fourths

Accepted Solution

A:

The question is what numbers satisfy A β© C.

The symbol β© means intersection, .i.e. you need to find the numbers that belong to both sets A and C. Those numbers might belong to the set C or not, because that is not a restriction.

Then lets find the numbers that belong to both sets, A and C.

Set A: perfect squares from A to 100:

1^2 = 1

2^2 = 4

3^2 = 9

4^2 = 16

5^2 = 25

6^2 = 36

7^2 = 49

8^2 = 64

9^2 = 81

10^2 = 100

=> A = {1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100}

Set C: perfect fourths

1^4 = 1

2^4 = 16

3^4 = 81

C = {1, 16, 81?

As you see, all the perfect fourths are perfect squares, so the intersection of A and C is completed included in A. this is:

A β© C = C or A β© C = 1, 16, 81

On the other hand, the perfect cubes are:

1^3 = 1

2^3 = 8

3^3 = 27

4^3 = 81

B = {1, 8, 27, 81}

That means that the numbers 1 and 81 belong to the three sets, A, B, and C.

In the drawing you must place the number 16 inside the region that represents the intersection of A and C only, and the numbers 1 and 81 inside the intersection of the three sets A, B and C.
