I am studying Discrete Math Structure, currently the topic is on Set Operations. One of the HW questions is: If c(A) = 16, c(B) = 29, and c(A intersect B) = 9, then... c (A Union B) is = ______? What is c? I don't understand the notation c(A) :( I can't find c(A) notation in my textbook :/

    try this, draw 2 circles, intersecting each other, the one part belong to both circle (intersection) is 9, the 2 circles with 16 and 29 ...so the outside part of circle 16 is 7 and the other is 20...try to figure out union of A and B ?
