Venn Diagrams

09 Sep

Venn Diagrams can be used to compare and contracts stores, objects and many other things. They can also be used in math. When using Venn Diagrams for math it normally has to do with shapes, sizes and color.

When exploring Venn Diagrams I found some extra practice problems that I did to help; this page was very helpful at give me some extra problems to do the problem below is an example of a problem where all the
information that was given was needed.

After applying basic Venn Diagram functions then we moved to shading them;  I understood it in the classroom when it was being done, but when I went home to do the homework and went to do the problems
I was lost. I used the tools that we got in class, but I also went online. I found a website called purplemath that was helpful.

Some of the problems that we did where:

  • A’
  • AUB
  • (AUB)’

When writing a set we use { } at the beginning and end of each. For example if I said that A={2, 4, 6, 8, 10} and set B={3, 5, 7, 9, 11}. We use the brackets to start and to end a set. You can write set using Venn Diagrams or by having them giving to you and combining them; for example AUB (A union B)={2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11}.
