# MATHS TRICKS FOR RELATION AND FUNCTION

Hey Students, in this post, you will learn about the Maths Tips and Tricks for IIT JEE Relation and Function chapter from class 12 Maths Subjects. This maths tips and tricks is very useful in solving the problems of IIT JEE Mains and Advance entrance exams.

Since we already know that the chapter of relation and function contains conceptual questions that required more time to solve. This maths tips and tricks reduces the time consuming problems. By using this maths tips and tricks, you will able to solve more questions in the IIT JEE examination hall in very short time. So read this post carefully.

Maths Tips and Tricks 1: If A and B are any two non-empty sets having n elements in common, then  and have  elements in common.

Example : A and B are two sets having 4 elements in common. If n(A) = 5 and n(B) = 9, then n[( ()] =
