This is certainly a set of juicy fruits and vegetables!

The concept of “sets” in mathematics is an integral part of the study of mathematics. A set is a collection of objects or members which share certain common characteristics.

In mathematics, sets are represented by verbal descriptions, enclosed braces or loops.

For example, we can create the set of “things you write with,” or the set of “teachers who teach you at school.”

We can describe or represent these sets in several ways.

  1. Verbally
  2. Listing or Tabulation using braces
  3. Loops
