a)  C (5,3)   = 10 subsets

 

b)  

Total of subsets with no elements  =  1

Total of subsets with one element  = 5

Total of subsets with two elements  =C (5,2)  = 10

Total of subsets with three elements = C(5,3)  = 10

 

So....we have 1 + 5 + 10 + 10  =   26 subsets with no more than three elements
