Similarly, if A is the set of the pupils in your class who have no bad marks and В is the set of the excellent pupils then, of course, A zd B. It should also be taken into account t h a t when two sets A and В coincide it is also correct to write A zd В because in this case as well the set В is entirely contained in the set A. We see, t h a t the relation I D for ele47 Fig. 19 Fig. 20 ments of a Boolean algebra is closer to the relation ^ ("greater than or equal to") t h a n to the relation > ("greater than") used in the algebra of numbers.

26 proposition a asserts that "the pupil has bad marks" then the proposition a means "the pupil has no bad marks". If the universal set / consists of the geometrical figures shown in Fig. 24 and the proposition b asserts that "the figure is triangular" then the proposition b means "it is false that the figure is triangular" (that is, simply, "the figure is not triangular"; see Fig. 26). Generally, the proposition à has the sense "not a"; hence, the "bar" operation of the propositional algebra is the operation of forming the negation (denial) à of the proposition a.

Up till now we have not considered Ibis relation in connection with propositions nul only discussed it in connection with the algebra of sets. 'impositions.
