If E = { n e Z:1 =< n =< 12} A={n e Z:12 mod n=0} B={n e E: n is a prime number} C={n e Z: n mod 1=2} Enumerate the elements of A U B ______ (A U C) C - A Could someone explain in steps how to solve this question?

[color=#000000]The first thing you have to do is to specify the elements of each set. I made some changes because I think that there are problems in the wording of the exercise. $E=\{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12\}$ $A=\{{n\in E:\;12\equiv 0 \,\pmod{n}\,\}=\{ 1,2,3,4,6,12\}$ $B=\{n\in E:\;n\in\mathbb{P}\}=\{1,2,3,5,7,11\}$ $C=\{n\in E:\; n\equiv 1\, \pmod{2}\,\}=\{ 1,3,5,7,9,11\}$ [/color]

[color=#000000]Ok I corrected it, I tried to use \mod but it didn't work here![/color]
