Since 2 is in A and B, but is not in C, it is placed in the intersection of A and B, but outside C. Check that the remaining numbers are in the appropriate regions. Now you can see from the diagram that the numbers that are in C and in A ʜ B are 4 and 5. So, 7 (A ʜ B) ʝ C ϭ ͕4, 5͖. C A ϭ {1, 2, 3, 4} B ϭ {2, 5, 6, 8} C ϭ {4, 5, 7} You can also see that B ʝ C ϭ ͕5͖. The union of that set with A gives us A ʜ (B ʝ C) ϭ ͕1, 2, 3, 4, 5͖. 6 U6V Applications E X A M P L E 7 Using Venn diagrams An instructor surveyed her class of 40 students and found that all of them either watched TV or surfed the Internet last evening.
