Solution. The truth value of x ∈ A is opposite that of x ∈ A, so the table is as follows. A T T T T F F F F B T T F F T T F F C T F T F T F T F A F F F F T T T T A∩B F F F F T T F F A∩C T F T F F F F F (A ∩ B) ∪ C T T T T T T T F There is no line with T in the second-last column and F in the last, so inclusion is proved. Practice Exercise. Prove that A ∩ B ∩ C ⊆ B ∩ (A ∪ C). Venn Diagrams It is common, and useful, to illustrate sets and operations on sets by diagrams. 3 Proof Methods in Set Theory 47 Fig.
