If π equals the set of numbers
six, zero, three, seven, eight; π is equal to the set of numbers eight, three,
five, two; and π equals eight, zero, one, four, five, which Venn diagram represents
the sets?

A starting point in this question
might be to consider set π and see which of our diagrams contain the numbers six,
zero, three, seven, and eight. Unfortunately, this alone does not
help as all four of our options have these five numbers. Set π contains the numbers eight,
three, five, and two. Once again, all four circles
contain these four numbers. We know that set π contains the
numbers eight, zero, one, four, and five. Options (A), (C), and (D) all
contain these five numbers in circle π. This means that we can only
eliminate option (B) using this start point.

In questions such as this, it is
far more important to look at the intersections or overlaps between the circles. The intersection notation is
written as shown. Letβs first consider those numbers
that appear in set π, set π, and set π. The only number that appears in all
three sets is eight. This means that we must have an
eight in the intersection of all three circles. Once again, options (A), (C), and
(D) all satisfy this. Letβs now consider which numbers
appear in set π and π, π and π, and π and π. The only number apart from eight
that appears in set π and set π is three. This means that the set of numbers
in the intersection π and π is eight and three. The number three must appear in the
overlap between set π and set π.

In options (C) and (D), this is
true. However, in set (A) there is no
number in this intersection, so we can rule out this option. The number zero exists in set π
and in set π. This means that the intersection of
π and π contains eight and zero. We must have a zero in the overlap
between π and π. This is true for option (C), but
not for option (D) as there is no number in the intersection between π and π
only. This suggests that option (C) is
the correct answer.

We will check this by considering
the intersection of π and π. The number five appears in set π
and set π. It also appears on the Venn diagram
in the intersection of these two circles. The intersection of set π and set
π needs to contain eight and five, which is correct. The Venn diagram that represents
the three sets given is option (C). In this type of question, the most
important part is to look at the intersection of the different sets.
