If A and B be two sets containing 3 and 6 elements respectively, what can be the minimum number of elements in A ∪ B ? Find, also the maximum number of elements in A ∪ B ?

A has 3 elements and B has 6 elements.

will be minimum when A is the subset of B.

hence minimum number of elements in is 6.

will be maximum when A and B are disjoint sets.

hence maximum number of elements in is 3+6=9
