Often, it is convenient to describe a set by stating a property that members of the set must satisfy.
In such cases, setbuilder notation comes to the rescue.
Setbuilder notation always has the following general form:
$$ \cssId{s9}{\{} \cssId{s10}{x} \cssId{s11}{\ \ } \cssId{s12}{\text{ a property that }\ x\ \text{ must satisfy }} \cssId{s13}{\}} $$The vertical bar, ‘$\,\,$’, is read as such that or with the property that.
For example:
$\{ x\ \ x\gt 0\}$  can be read as  the set of all $\,x\,$ with the property that $\,x\,$ is greater than zero 
$\{ x\ \ x\gt 0\}$  can be read as  the set of all $\,x\,$ such that $\,x\,$ is greater than zero 
Here's how those words attach themselves to different parts of the sentence:
$$
\cssId{s24}{\overset{\text{the set of all}}{\overbrace{\strut\ \ \{\ \ }}}
\cssId{s25}{\overset{\text{ex}}{\overbrace{\strut\ \ x\ \ }}}
\cssId{s26}{\underset{\text{with the property that}}{\underbrace{
\overset{\text{such that}}{\overbrace{\strut\ \ \ \ }}}}}
\cssId{s27}{\overset{\text{ex}}{\overbrace{\strut\ \ \ x\ \ }}}
\cssId{s28}{\overset{\text{is greater than}}{\overbrace{\strut\ \ \gt\ \ }}}\ \
\cssId{s29}{\overset{\text{zero}}{\overbrace{\strut\ \ 0\ \ }}}\ \
\}
$$
Notice that the closing brace, ‘$\,\}\,$’, is not verbalized.
It is required, however, since it marks the end of the set structure.
Of course, sets often have different names.
In the example above, the set could alternatively be described using
interval notation:
$$
\cssId{s34}{\{ x\ \ x\gt 0 \}}
\cssId{s35}{=}
\cssId{s36}{(0,\infty )}
$$
Setbuilder notation uses the concept of dummy variable.
Roughly, a dummy variable is just a name
given to something so that we have a way to talk about it;
the name used doesn't affect the result.
Dummy variables are used in
function notation:
‘$\,f(x)= x+2\,$’
describes the rule
‘take a number and add two’.
Here, the dummy variable is $\,x\,$.
‘$\,f(t)=t+2\,$’
also describes the rule
‘take a number and add two’.
Here, the dummy variable is $\,t\,$.
The set
$\,\{x\ \ x\gt 0\}\,$
can be written, using the dummy variable $\,t\,$, as
$\{t\ \ t\gt 0\}\,$.
Or, it can be written, using the dummy variable $\,w\,$, as
$\,\{w\ \ w\gt 0\}\,$.
Of course, it's a good idea to stick to the
normal conventions for naming variables:
for real numbers, use letters near the end of the alphabet;
for integers, use letters near the middle of the alphabet.
Addition,
‘$\,+\,$’,
is a connective for numbers.
That is, two numbers $\,x\,$ and $\,y\,$ can be connected to get a new number,
$\,x+y\,$.
Similarly,
‘$\,\cup\,$’ (union)
and
‘$\,\cap\,$’ (intersection)
are connectives for sets;
they combine two sets to give a new set.
Let $\,A\,$ and $\,B\,$ be sets.
The set
‘$\,A\cup B\,$’
is read as
‘$\,A\,$ union $\,B\,$’.
By definition:
$$
\cssId{s76}{A\cup B}
\cssId{s77}{=}
\cssId{s78}{\{ x\ \ x\in A \ \text{ or }\ x\in B\}}
$$
(This is the mathematical word ‘or’ being used here.)
Thus, to find $\,A\cup B\,$,
you put in everything from $\,A\,$,
and also everything from $\,B\,$.
Venn diagrams are illustrations that are useful for showing the relationship between sets.
In the Venn diagram below,
$\,A\,$ is the left circle,
$\,B\,$ is the right circle,
and $\,A\cup B\,$ is shaded.
The set
‘$\,A\cap B\,$’
is read as
‘$\,A\,$ intersect $\,B\,$’.
By definition:
$$
\cssId{s94}{A\cap B}
\cssId{s95}{=}
\cssId{s96}{\{ x\ \ x\in A \ \text{ and }\ x\in B\}}
$$
(This is the mathematical word ‘and’ being used here.)
Thus, $\,A\cap B\,$ consists of everything
that is common to both $\,A\,$ and $\,B\,$;
i.e., the overlap of $\,A\,$ and $\,B\,$.
In the Venn diagram below,
the doublehatched (darker) area in the middle is
$\,A\cap B\,$.
Let $\,U\,$ be a set (the universal set),
and let $\,A\,$ be a
subset of $\,U\,$.
The set
$\overline{A}\,$
is read as
‘$\,A\,$ bar’
or ‘the complement of $\,A\,$’
and is defined by:
$$
\cssId{s111}{\overline{A}}
\cssId{s112}{=}
\cssId{s113}{\{ x\ \ x\in U \ \text{ and }\ x\notin A\}}
$$
Thus, $\,\overline{A}\,$ is everything that is not in $\,A\,$;
it is everything that is outside of $\,A\,$.
In English, the word complement means to fill out or to make a whole,
and the set $\,\overline{A}\,$ ‘fills out’ the set $\,A\,$ to give all of $\,U\,$.
In the Venn diagram below,
the universal set $\,U\,$ is the rectangle,
the subset $\,A\,$ is the circle,
and $\,\overline{A}\,$ is the yellow region inside the rectangle, but
outside the circle.
On this exercise, you will not key in your answer. However, you can check to see if your answer is correct.
