Let B i = { x R|0 x i } for each integer i = 1 , 2 , 3 , 4.

a. B 1 B 2 B 3 B 4 = ?

b. B 1 B 2 B 3 B 4 = ?

c. Are B 1 , B 2 , B 3 , and B 4 mutually disjoint? Explain.

To determine

(a)

B1B2B3B4

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Bi={xR|0xi}, for all integers i=1,2,3, and 4.

Concept used:

B1={xR|0x1}=[0,1]B2={xR|0x2}=[0,2]B3={xR|0x3}=[0,3]B4={xR|0x4}=[0,4]

Calculation:

Consider the set,

B1B2B3B4

The objective is to determine the set B1B2B3B4 from the above defined sets.

From the definition of set union,

AB={xU|xA or xB}

To determine

(b)

B1B2B3B4

To determine

(c)

Are B1,B2,B3andB4 mutually disjoin? Explain.
