1. First remember that the empty set, {}, and the set itself, {8,16,27,31}, are subsets. Next, list all possible one element subsets: {8},{16},{27},{31}. Next, list all possible subsets with 2 elements.
{8,16}, {8,27},{8,31},{16,27},{16,31},{27,31}. (Notice that {8,16} is the same thing as {16,8}. We only want to list each subset once.)
Now, list all subsets with 3 elements: {8,16,27},{8,16,31},{8,27,31},{16,27,31}.

Notice that there are 2^4 = 16 subsets. In ...
