"Python Assignment #10

Complete programming exercise #19 on page 384 from Chapter 11"

create and test a Set class to represent a classical set. your sets should support the following methods:

Set(elements): Create a set (elements is the initial list of items in the set)

addElement(x): Adds x to the set.

deleteElement(x): Removes x from the set if present. if x is not in the set, the set is left unchanged.

member(x): Returns true if x is in the set and false otherwise.

intersection(set2): Returns a new set containing just those elements that are common to this set, set2 or both

union(set2): Returns a new set containing all of elements that are in this set, set2, or both.

subtract(set2): Returns a new set containing all the elements of this set that are not in set2.

ive been really having a hard time, but have managed to come up with the below code...it runs and prints in idle, but when i type anything it gives me an error!im using python. thanks again for any help!

```
# class set declaration
class Set:
#initializing the set
def __init__(self, list1=[]):
self.list1 = list1
#adding the element to the set
def addElement(self, x):
if x not in self.list1:
self.list1.append(x)
return True
else:
return False
#deleting element from the set
def deleteElement(self, x):
if x in self.list1:
self.list1.remove(x)
return True
else:
return False
#check the element is in the set or not
def member(self, x):
if x in self.list1:
return True
else:
return False
#finding the union of the two sets
# the result is stored in new set and has no impact
#on original set
def union(self, aSet2=[]):
self.list2 = aSet2
newSetUnion = Set([])
for i in self.list1:
newSetUnion.addElement(i)
for j in self.list2:
if not j in self.list1:
newSetUnion.addElement(j)
return newSetUnion
#finding the intersection of the two sets
# the result is stored in new set and has no impact
#on original set
def intersection(self, aSet1=[]):
self.list3 = aSet1
newSetInter = Set([])
for i in self.list1:
if i in self.list3:
newSetInter.addElement(i)
return newSetInter
#finding the substraction of the two sets
# the result is stored in new set and has no impact
#on original set
def subtract(self, aSet3=[]):
self.list4 = aSet3
newSetSubtract = Set([])
for i in self.list1:
if i not in self.list4:
newSetSubtract.addElement(i)
return newSetSubtract
#to display the set
def displya(self):
return self.list1
def __str__(self):
return "%s" % self.list1
#main function
def main(self):
s = Set([0, 1, 2, 3, 4])
print
"The elements in the set are : ",
# Ask the user to enter the element to be added
n = input('Enter the element to add to the set: ')
#calling method to add the element
