Use the element method for proving a set equals the empty set to prove each statement in 28—38. Assume that all sets are subsets of a universal set

28. For all sets *A *and *B*,

To determine

**To Prove:**

If

**Given information:**

Consider that a universal set

**Concept used:**

**Calculation:**

Consider that a universal set

The objective is to find

**Element method for proving a set equal to empty set:**

To prove that a set X is equal to the empty set

Suppose X has an element and derive a contradiction.

Prove that the set

Since all sets are subsets of the universal set
