## Main Question or Discussion Point

So as I was beginning to read through my Graph Theory textbook I had a burning question I wanted to get some perspective on.

So a Graph is defined as an object containing a Vertex Set and an Edge Set,

v = # of elements in the vertex set and e = # of elements in the Edge Set (if any)

Would this mean that |g| = v + e = cardinality of the graph?

Abstract thinking is strange to me sometimes and its weird to think of a graph technically having cardinality.
