I'm trying to figure out what the vertical bars in |A∪B| mean given that A and B are both sets. I tried searching for it, and can't seem to find the meaning of it. Is it supposed to be absolute value of all the elements of the union of sets A and B?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
