A question in set theory 2015-02-25
From Jared:
If a set A={1,2,3} and set B={ {}, 1}

Can B be a subset of A? Since every Set contains an {} ?

Sets and elements 2002-08-22
From Dianne:
I want to know why its okay to say that, for example, 6 is an element of the set of integers, but you get counted off for saying that the set of 6 is an element of the set of integers. How come?

Composition of functions 2002-04-06
From Yvonne:
In our new text book, the following question occurs: State the domain and range of g(f(x))given that f(x) = -x2 - 4 and g(x) = sqrt(x)

The range of f(x), x<=-4, is the domain of g(x). BUT, there is no solution in the Real numbers for g(f(x))= sqrt(-x2 - 4).

In the solutions it says that this is not a function and therefore does not have a domain or range. Is it a relation? Is it anything?
