Venn Diagram refers to the illustration which tells us about the relationship between a set of objects that have something in common. The relation between the set of objects is denoted by ‘U’ (union) & ‘’ (intersection).

How to Use a Venn Diagram

Let’s say A is a set of number that is divisible by 2 and B is a set of numbers that is divisible by 3. In these two sets of numbers, there are certain common numbers as well which are divisible by both 2 and 3.

Graphically the above statement is interpreted using Venn Diagram as below:

The red segment represents those numbers that can only be divisible by 2, yellow is a set of those numbers that is divisible by number 3 only and orange is a set of those numbers which is divisible by 2 as well as 3.

Mathematically,

  • (A U B) or A union B includes all the numbers from sets A and B.

       (A U B) = {2,3,4,6,8,9,10,12,15,16,18,20,21,24,27,30}

  • (A B) or A intersection B represents all numbers common for both sets A and B.

       (A B) = {6,12,18,24,30)
