## Question:

If {eq}A = \{b,\ c,\ f,\ g\} {/eq} and {eq}B = \{c,\ e,\ g,\ h\} {/eq}, then verify the commutative property of (a) union of sets, (b) intersection of sets.

## Commutative Property:

In set language, commutative situations can be seen when we perform operations. We can look into the union and intersection of sets to find out if the operation is commutative. A union is nothing but the combination of the elements of A and B. Commutative property of union set is {eq}\ A \cup B = B \cup A \ {/eq}

An intersection is nothing but the common elements present in A and B. Commutative property of union set is {eq}\ A \cap B = B \cap A \ {/eq}
