What Is A Venn Diagram?

A Venn Diagram is a pictorial representation of the relationships between sets.

The following figures show how to shade regions of Venn Diagrams for two sets:
A intersect B, A union B, A', A intersect B', A' intersect B, A union B',
A' union B, A' union B' = (A intersect B)', A' intersect B' = (A union B)'.
Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions on how to shade Venn Diagrams to represent the required regions of two sets and three sets.
