    You don't have to solve anything. It is is asking which of the below statements are true.

    Every set is a subset of itself. - Empty set is a subset of every set. - Other Example: If A={1,2,3} and B={1,2} B is a subset of A because A has all of B's elements. A is not a subset of B because B does not have all the elements A has.

    So let's look at the first statement "W is a subset of Z" Do you think that is true?

    Does Z have all the elements that W has?

    It looks true to me!! All w are z, but not all z are w

    Yep that statement is true. Integers={...,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,...} W={0,1,2,...} As we see the set of W is a subset of Z because W has the elements 0,1,2,... and these elements are also in Z. Now Z is not a subset of W because W does not have all the elements Z has.

    That makes sense!! Thanks! :D Based on that, I think #2 is true All r is w, but all w is not r

    The real numbers include numbers that aren't in the set of whole numbers like sqrt(5) and pi and so on...

    Now you could say the whole numbers is a subset of the real numbers.

    \[\emptyset=\{ \text{ } \}=\text{ empty set } \] This basically means there are no elements contained within the set.

    It is totally empty and no you do not say 0 is element of the empty set. There are no elements in the empty set not even 0.

    Like I'm saying that equal sign means they could be equal. Like they have the same exact elements in both sets.

    Yes so back to your question, |dw:1387243864499:dw| are these the same sets on both sides of that "weird symbol"?

    that little line just means they can have all the exact same elements (talking about both sets; both sets can be exactly the same when you have symbol)

    You are right to say false. But doesn't say "-2 is not equal to W" Say "-2 is not en element of W" This just means the set W does not include -2 as an element.
