About Venn Diagrams and set notation. Does a "minus P" mean minus the overlap or all of "P"? Example Triple Venn of K, P and M. K has 15 people, 6 of which overlap with P. P has 7 people, 6 of which over lap with K. If M union K = 12, would MUK  P = 6 or 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[M \bigcup K \setminus P\] would be the set of everything that is in M and K but not in P.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically we can see that there is only 1 element that is in M AND K but not in P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1M union K is the set of all the elements of both M and K: MuK, MorK M intersect K is the set of only the common elements: MnK, MandK

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Elements  yes bc MUK is {8,1,3,2,4} P = {1,2,4} MUK  P would be {8, 1,3,2,4}  {1,2,4} (where the 1s are different elements) leaving {8,1,3}.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you your answer clarified this in a more important way than this single question. We have to relook at the set notation chapter.
