Suppose B is proper subset of C.
If n(c)=8, what is the maximum number of elements n B?

What is the least possible number of elements B?

  • elmentary math for educators -

    If B is a proper subset of C, we have
    B ⊊ C
    This means that B is a any subset of B which is not equal to C. So the maximum number of elements of B is the cardinality of C minus one.

    Thus the maximum number of elements of B is 8-1 = 7.

    Since the empty set ∅ is a member of every set, the least number of elements of B is 0.
