# Calculate the number of subsets and the number of proper subsets for the set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}.

A subset is nothing but a part of a set.

## Answer: The set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} has 32 subsets and 31 proper subsets.

Let us find the number of subsets and the number of proper subsets for the set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}.

**Explanation:**

A set containing n elements has 2^{n} subsets and 2^{n} - 1 proper subset.

The given set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} contains 5 elements.

So, it has 2^{5} = 32 subsets in all and 31 proper subsets.

You can now find out the number of subsets for the set {1, 2, 3}.

### Therefore, the set has 32 subsets and 31 proper subsets.
