The cup symbol is used in mathematics to represent the union operation for two sets. The union operator returns a set containing the elements from both sets.

For example, the union of the two sets A and B is denoted as:

If A = { w, x, y} and B = { x, y, z} then the union operator returns the combined elements in both sets. Since is a set is defined as a unique collection of elements, elements are not duplicated.
