In respect to this, how many unordered pairs are there?

If A has four elements, the number of its companions is the number of subsets of a set of elements which is . As before, the unordered pairs amount to 40.

are sets unordered? Definition: A set is an unordered collection of objects without duplicates. The objects in a set are called elements or members.

Similarly, what is ordered pair in sets?

The pair of elements that occur in particular order and are enclosed in brackets are called a set of ordered pairs. • If 'a' and 'b' are two elements, then the two different pairs are (a, b); (b, a) and (a, b); (b, a). • In an ordered pair (a, b), a is called the first component and b is called the second component.

What is the difference between a set and a pair?

In mathematics, pair indicates a set of two elements where the order has not importance: {a,b} and {b,a} are the same sets. In couple the order matters: (a,b) is not the same (b,a).
