# 10 Examples of Subsets

In mathematics, **subsets** are fundamental concepts that describe relationships between **sets**. A subset is a set that contains only elements that are also found in another set.

In this article, we will discuss ten examples of subsets in **mathematics**.

**Examples of Subsets**

These are 10 examples of subsets.

**1: Set of Natural Numbers**

Set {1, 2} is a subset of {1, 2, 3, 4}.

**2: Set of Even Numbers**

A set of even numbers {2, 4, 6} is a subset of the set of natural numbers {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7…}.

**3: Set of vowels**

The set of vowels {a, e, i, o, u} is a subset of the set of alphabets {a, b, c, d, e, f…}.

**4: Set of Prime Numbers**

A set of prime numbers less than 10 {2, 3, 5, 7} is a subset of the set of natural numbers {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}.

**5: Set of Planets**

The set of planets {Earth, Mars, Venus} is a subset of the set of planets in our solar system {Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune}.

**6: Set of Colors in a Rainbow**

Colors of the rainbow (ROYGBIV – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet) form a subset of the set of all colors

**7: Set of Divisors of a Number**

A set of divisors of a number is a subset of the set of positive integers. For example, the divisors of 12 are {1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12}

**8: Geometric Shapes**

In geometry, subsets are commonly used. For example, the set of all triangles is a subset of the set of all polygons.

**9: Set of Rectangles**

Set of rectangles is a subset of the set of quadrilaterals.

**10: Set of Irrational Numbers**

A set of irrational numbers is a subset of the set of real numbers.
