Do the intersection of two sets always contains a smaller number of terms than the union of two sets?

No, because the intersection of two equivalent sets will have a union the same size as its intersection.

What is intersection of the set?

You normally do not have an intersection of only one set. The intersection of a set with itself is the set itself - a statement that adds little value. The intersection of two sets is the set which contains elements that are in each of the two sets.

What is the set of members that two or more sets have in common?

That is called the intersection of the sets.

Is The intersection of two nonempty sets is always nonempty?

Not necessarily. The odd integers and the even integers are two infinitely large sets. But their intersection is the null (empty) set.

What is interseting set?

I presume you mean intersecting. Two sets are intersecting if they have members in common. The set of members common to two (or more) sets is called the intersection of those sets. If two sets have no members in common, their intersection is the empty set. In this case the sets are called disjoint.

What is it when you have all the elements in two or more sets?

The set of elements that are elements of the two (or more) given sets is called the intersection of the sets.

What does the over lap of the two ovals show?

It shows the intersection of two sets; those elements that are common to both sets.

What is the union intersection set?

Given two or more sets there is a set which is their union and a set which is there intersection. But, there is no such thing as a "union intersection set", as required for the answer to the question.

How do you use venn diagram to represent the union and intersection sets?

For two sets, the Venn diagram will consist of two overlapping ovals. The area of the overlap is the intersection. The entire area of both ovals is the union.

What is a intersection subset?

The intersection of two sets, X and Y, consists of all elements that belong to both X and Y.

What is the intersection set?

is the result after doing intersection on 2 or more sets. It contains the elements which are common to all the sets on which intersection were done.
