i've got a question i need help on

i've got to use braces, an ellipis, and digits to illustrate the set of negative odd numbers

whats that suppose to mean

  • math -

    Braces are used to enclose the members of a set.

    An ellipsis (...) is a punctuation mark that represents the rest of a series of numbers that are not enumerated. For example, 1,2,3,... means all positive integers (whole numbers), and 2,4,6,... means all even positive integers. Similarly, -1, -3, -5, ... means all negative odd integers.

    Summing everything up, if we need a set of all negative odd integers (whole numbers), we write it as:
    {-1, -3, -5, ...}
