Using the Venn diagram below, find the intersection of 𝑋 and π‘Œ.

So this upside-down U stands for intersection. And the intersection of two sets includes the elements found in both sets, so the elements that they share. The elements of 𝑋 are found in this oval. And it includes elements two, one, four, eight, and three. The elements of π‘Œ can be found in this box and include elements eight, three, seven, nine, and five.

And the elements that they share can be found where they overlap. So the intersection of 𝑋 and π‘Œ will include elements eight and three. And this makes sense because 𝑋 and π‘Œ share elements eight and three. So this will be our final answer.
