    Re: AUB=

    It mean "A union B" or "A or B"

    What would "A or B" mean with regards to the two sets?.

    It would mean the elements that are in A or B.

    What is in A or B?.

    1,3,5,7,9,12

    Now, if the symbol were upside down and you had [tex]A\cap B[/tex]

    That means, "A and B" or "A intersect B".

    What is in "A and B"?.

    That is, what do they share?.

    1,3,9

    Those elements are in both sets. If you draw a Venn diagram, they would be in the intersection of the two circles.
