# Equivalent and equal sets

Please explain. Thank you.

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= { ...
