Intersection and Union

Main Concept

Given two intervals, the two major relations between them are their union and their intersection.

 

The union of two sets or intervals, A and B, is the set of elements which are in either set. This is denoted as A B.

 

The intersection of two sets or intervals, A and B, is the set of elements which are in both sets. This is denoted as A B.

 

Drag to place two intervals on the number line. Choose whether to include, exclude, or set your endpoints to ±. Use the check boxes on the right to show the two intervals, their union, and their intersection.
