<-- Enter Set

Display the elements, cardinality, and power set for S = {1,2,3,4,5}

Determine the cardinality of set S denoted as |S|:
The cardinality of a set is the number of items contained in the set.
|S| = 5

List the elements of S
1 ∈ S
2 ∈ S
3 ∈ S
4 ∈ S
5 ∈ S

Determine the power set of S, denoted as P:
The power set is the set of all subsets of S including S and the empty set
Since S contains 5 terms, our Power Set should contain 25 = 32 items
Each subset term can be written using binary expansion representation starting at 0 through 32 - 1 = 31
