a. what is the union of sets x and y
b. what is the intersection of sets x and y
c. create your own set z that is a subset of x

2.Let set 1 be the entire alphabet. let set 2 = (w,x,y,z)
a. what is the complement of set 2 in set 1
b. set 3 =(w,x,z). is set 3 a proper subset of set 2 . please explain in words

3. suppose you are going to flip a coin. what is the set of possible outcomes for this
suppose you flip the coin twice. what is the set of possible outcomes for this
if you flip the coin twice what are the chances that you will get one head and one tail? ( i.e 1 in 3, 1 in 4)

4. consider 2 regular dices- how many possible outcomes (sum of dots) are there if you throw the two dice on the board? what are the chaces the sum of both dice will be equal to 6. how about both dice again but the sum of 7 ?
