8.1 Cartesian Product of Sets

If A and B are any two sets, the set of all possible ordered pairs (a,b) with a A and b B, is called the cartesian product of A and B and is denoted by A B. and it is read as A cross B.
The set builder form of A B is
A B = {(a,b)/a A and b B}
Observing the above relation we find the following points.
1. The ordered pair of A B, the first coordinate belongs to A while the second coordinate belongs to B.
2. A B B A.
3. If n(A)= a and n(B) = b then n(A B) = ab.
4. If A is empty or B is empty then A B is empty.
5. If one of the sets A and B is infinite the other is non-empty then A B is also infinite.

Example:
If A = {1,3,5} and B = {2,4}, then find A B and B A and also find n(A B).
Solution:
(i). A B = {1,3,5} {2,4}
= {(1,2),(1,4),(3,2),(3,4),(5,2),(5,4)}

(ii). B A = {2,4} {1,3,5}
= {(2,1),(2,3),(2,5),(4,1),(4,3),(4,5)}

(iii). n(A B) = n(A) * n(B)
Where n(A) and n(B) are the number of elements in the set A and B respectively.
n(A B) = 3 * 2
= 6
