Problem

Quiz 12-1: Basic Set Theory, Counting Outcomes, Probability 1. Suppose a universal set consists of natural numbers that are at most 16. Two subsets are created from the universal set; Set A contains the multiples of 3 and Set B contains the odd numbers. Correctly place each element of the universal set in the Venn diagram to the right. lements in each: HINT: answers should be like 3,4,5 or what ever numbers would be listed in that section.

Given the universal set consists of natural numbers that are at most 16, we first identify all elements of the universal set, then categorize them into Set A (multiples of 3) and Set B (odd numbers), and finally place them accordingly in a Venn diagram.

The elements are $1, 2, 3, \ldots, 16$.

**Numbers in Each Section:**

**In both A and B (Intersection)**: $3, 9, 15$**Only in A**: $6, 12$**Only in B**: $1, 5, 7, 11, 13$**Outside A and B**: $2, 4, 8, 10, 14, 16$

**Set A (Multiples of 3):**

The multiples of 3 up to 16 are $3, 6, 9, 12, 15$.

**Set B (Odd Numbers):**

The odd numbers up to 16 are $1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15$.

**Placement in the Venn Diagram:**

**Intersection of A and B**(Both multiples of 3 and odd numbers): $3, 9, 15$**Elements only in A**(Multiples of 3 but not odd): $6, 12$**Elements only in B**(Odd numbers but not multiples of 3): $1, 5, 7, 11, 13$**Elements in neither A nor B**(Not multiples of 3 and not odd numbers, so these are even numbers excluding multiples of 3): $2, 4, 8, 10, 14, 16$

**Numbers in Each Section:**

**In both A and B (Intersection)**: $3, 9, 15$**Only in A**(Multiples of 3 but not odd): $6, 12$**Only in B**: $1, 5, 7, 11, 13$**Outside A and B**: $2, 4, 8, 10, 14, 16$
