    Are the Sets equivalent? Justify Your answers.

    1. A= { 14, 15, 16, 17, 18,}
    B= {13, 14, 15, 16, 17}

    2. A= { 17, 18, 18, 19, 19,19,20, 20, 20, 20}
    B= { 20, 19, 18, 17}

    3. A= { Larry, Moe, Curly, Shemp}
    B= { Posh, Sporty, Baby, Scary}

    Are the sets equal? Justify your answers.

    1. { e,f, g, h}= {f, h, g,e}

    2.{16, 18,20,22,24} = {18, 20,,22,24}

    3.{4,4,11,11,17} ={4,11,17}

    Are the Sets equivalent? Justify Your answers.
    1. A= { 14, 15, 16, 17, 18,} B= {13, 14, 15, 16, 17}
    Answer: Yes. Both A and B have the same number of elements and thus can build a one-to-one correspondence.

    2. A= { ...
