In this article, we will learn about intersection() function that can be performed on any given set. According to mathematics intersection means finding out common elements from the two sets.

<set name>.intersection(<set a1> <set a2> ……..)

common elements in sets passed as arguments.

set_1 = {'t','u','t','o','r','i','a','l'} set_2 = {'p','o','i','n','t'} set_3 = {'t','u','t'} #intersection of two sets print("set1 intersection set2 : ", set_1.intersection(set_2)) # intersection of three sets print("set1 intersection set2 intersection set3 :", set_1.intersection(set_2,set_3))

set1 intersection set2 : {'i', 'o', 't'} set1 intersection set2 intersection set3 : {'t'}

Here a search is made to find the common elements by interpreter implicitly and is returned back as a set to the respective reference.

In this article, we learned about the implementation and usage of the intersection function present in Python 3.x. Or earlier.
