In this problem you are given 5 data points and has no repeating elements. The number of subsets is calculated by

2^n

where n is the number of elements in your set.

since there are 5 elements in your set you would have 2^5 subsets or 32.

What does the ^ stand for in 2^n?
Since this question was already answered, I'll show you the actual subsets in the set {1,2,3,4,5}.

 

{1}, {2}, {3}, {4}, {5}

{1,2}, {1,3}, {1,4}, {1,5)

{2,3}, {2,4}, {2,5}

{3,4}, {3,5) {4,5}

{1,2,3}, {1,2,4}, {1,2,5}, {1,3,4}, {1,3,5}, {1,4,5}

{2,3,4}, {2,3,5}, {2,4,5}, {3,4,5}

{1,2,3,4}, {1,2,3,5},{1,2,4,5), {1,3,4,5}, {2,3,4,5}

{1,2,3,4,5}

{ }

Count it.

37 subsets thats the right answer
by
32 subsets and 31 proper subsets

Once you find the amount of subsets, you -1 and you get the Proper subsets.

The formula for calculating the number of subsets of a set is 2 ^ nth power, where n is the number of elements in the set. There are 5 elements in this set, so 2 ^ 5 = 32. There are 32 subsets for the given set.
