Homework Help: Empty set?

  1. Apr 17, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Does the empty set contain 0, the zero vector, ... all zero elements of a non empty set?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I don't think so. But could be wrong. The empty set shoudn't contain anything whatsoever.

    The empty set is empty, it contains nothing, so it does not contain 0, it does not contain any zero vectors, etc.
