# How many elements has P (A), if A = Φ?

**Solutions:**

We know that if A is a set with m elements, then P(A) represents the power set of A which means a set containing all subsets of A.

the number of elements of A is,

n(A) = m and

the number of elements of P(A) is,

n[P(A)] = 2^{m}

If A = Φ, then n (A) = 0 (as Φ means a null set).

Therefore, the number of elements of P(A) is

n[P(A)] = 2^{0} = 1.

Hence, P(A) has one element.
