(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

show S1 U S2 = (S1' ∩ S2')'

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm pretty sure I have this right or I'm close

Let x ∈ S1 U S2

x ∈ S1 or x ∈ S2

Since x ∈ S1 or S2, then x ∉ S1' and S2'

If x ∉ S1' and S2', then x ∈ (S1' and S2')'

Therefore, S1 U S2 = (S1' ∩ S2')'

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

show S1 U S2 - (S1 ∩ S2') = S2

3. The attempt at a solution

I have not attempted this as I'm not sure how to start this one...any help would be appreciated.
