## Homework Statement

In an intro Economics course, the teacher gave us some questions regarding function notation. I learned calculus to a decent level, but I have problems with notation.

## Homework Equations

**Question 1.**Give an explicit expression for the following set: { x : x ∈ Z and x < 2 }

**Question 2.**Give an example of an element (y) of the following set: Y = Y1 x Y2 x Y3 , whereY1 = set of train engines = { green, blue, red }, Y2 =set of train cars = { passenger, boxcar, tanker }, Y3 = set of cabooses = { red }.

**Question 3**. Consider the function f : X → Y, when Y = R and f and X are defined as

follows: X = {(1,1,0), (1,0,1), (1,0,0), (0,1,0), (0,0,1)} and f (x) = x1 + x2 + 2x3. Now what is the set { x : f (x) = 2, x ∈ X }? (NOTE: It is not x*2 or 2x*3, but x with a little two beside it, 2x with a little three beside it).

## The Attempt at a Solution

**Question 1**: I don't get what "explicit expression" means. It wants an integer less than two...

{x: (- infinity, 2), x ∈ Z}

**Question 2**: [Green, boxcar, red caboose]

**Question 3**: (1, 1, 0)

Can someone please tell me where/if I went wrong?
