In the set operations, let's calculate set difference. The difference of two set A and set B, denoted by A - B, is the set that contains exactly all elements in A but not in B.

The set operation difference between sets implies subtracting the elements from a set which is similar to the concept of the difference between numbers. The difference between sets A and B denoted as A − B lists all the elements that are in set A but not in set B. To understand this set operation of set difference better, let us consider an example: If A = {1, 2, 3, 4} and B = {3, 4, 5, 6}, then the difference between sets A and B is given by A - B = {1, 2}.

Set Operation | Venn Diagram | Interpretation |
---|---|---|

Union | A U B, is the set of all values that are a member of A, or B, or both. | |

Intersection | A ∩ B, is the set of all values that are a member of both A and B. | |

Difference | A \ B, is the set of all values of A that are not members of B. | |

Symmetric Difference | A ∆ B, is the set of all values which are in one of the sets but not both. |
