Given:
\[A = \{x: 1 \le x \le 5\}\]
why is \[A' = \{x : x < 1 \vee x > 5\}\]
and not \[A' = \{x: x< 1 \wedge x > 5\}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since \(x\) cannot be both less than one and greater than five at one time (otherwise we have a logical contradiction). Also, De Morgan's laws are useful for this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so does that mean \[A = \{x : x \ge 1 \wedge x \le 5\}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In any case: \[ A=\{x1\leq x\leq 5\}=\{x1\leq x \wedge x\leq 5\} \]
