# De Morgan's Laws (Set Theory)/Relative Complement/Family of Sets

## Theorem

Let $S$ be a set.

Let $\family {S_i}_{i \mathop \in I}$ be a family of subsets of $S$.

Then:

#### Complement of Intersection

$\ds \relcomp S {\bigcap_{i \mathop \in I} S_i} = \bigcup_{i \mathop \in I} \relcomp S {S_i}$

#### Complement of Union

$\ds \relcomp S {\bigcup_{i \mathop \in I} S_i} = \bigcap_{i \mathop \in I} \relcomp S {S_i}$
