is there a difference between {} and [] ? Also I am making more mistake on finding the intersection portion of the set

Well, whenever you see { and }, those denote generic sets. In this case, [ and ] are denoting an interval on the real number line. So [1,2] is just every real number \(x\) such that \(1\le x\le2\). So if you have \[\left\{\left[1,1+\frac{1}{n}\right]:n\in\mathbb{N}\right\},\] this is the set of all intervals \([1,1+1/n]\) such that \(n\) is a natural number greater than 0.

And can you be a little more specific on what parts about the intersection are confusing you?

oh ok i understand now about the {} and[]! about the intersection, on page 5 the intersection is {1} but why on page 7 the intersection is empty set?

  • anonymous
i thought the answer would be 1 as well

Ah. On page 7, they use ( and ) instead of [ and ]. The difference between these two, is whether the endpoints are included. So if you have [1,2], this is every real number x such that \(1\le x\le2\). However, (1,2) is every real number x such that \(1

You can also mix and match. So (1,2] would be all real numbers x such that \(1

oh so since < > are used, 1 is not part of the set, just the smallest number slightly greater than it is?

Precisely.
