Class 11 Maths Sets | Roster or Tabular Form |

**Roster or Tabular Form**

In roster form, all the elements of a set are listed, the elements are being separated by commas and are enclosed within braces { }

E.g. the set of all number in a dice is described in roster form as {1,2,3,4,5,6}.

Points to be noted in roster form:

- In roster form, the order in which the elements are listed is immaterial. g. The set of all vowels in the English alphabet can be written as {a, e, i, o, u} or {a,u,i,o,e} or {u, e, i, o, a} or {o, e, i, a, u}
- The dots at the end tell us that the list of odd numbers continue indefinitely. E.g.: The set of odd natural numbers is represented by {1, 3, 5, . . .}.
- In roster form, an element is not generally repeated, i.e., all the elements are taken as distinct.

E.g. The set of letters forming the word ‘SCHOOL’ is { S, C, H, O, L} .
