Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So: \[ \text{Assume }\mathbb{N}=\{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,\dots\},\,\text{i.e. }0\notin \mathbb{N}\\ A_n=\{(n+1)k,\,k\in \mathbb{N}\}\\ A_1=\{2k,\, k\in \mathbb{N}\}\\ A_2=\{3k,\, k\in \mathbb{N}\}\\ A_1\cap A_2=?\\ \bigcup_{r\in \mathbb{N}}A_r=A_1\cup A_2 \cup A_3 \cdots\\ \bigcap_{r\in\mathbb{N}}A_r=A_1\cap A_2 \cap A_3 \cdots \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, what is the question all about. what is the union and interception ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we're told that \(A_n\) is the set of integer multiples of \(n+1\), so intersection of \(A_1,A_2\) is $$\{\dots,2,0,2,\dots\}\cap\{\dots,3,0,3,\dots\}=\{\dots,6,0,6,\dots\}$$ i.e. the set of integers divisible by both \(2\) and \(3\), or, equivalently, integer multiples of \(6\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually, i mean positive integers so no negatives or zeros

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0using this logic it should be obvious now why $$\bigcap_{n\in\mathbb{N}}A_n=\emptyset$$. similarly, it should be clear that if we take the union of all the positive multiples of positive integers bigger than \(1\), we'll get every nonnegative integer *except* one: $$\bigcup_{n\in\mathbb{N}}A_n=\mathbb{N}\setminus\{1\}$$
