But this isn't a set unless you are using EXIST to add syntactic

R(I,x) <=> { x | R(I,x) }

And you're swapping between = with sets of answers (or intersection)
and ^ in predicate format.

How do you write using {} format - the set of numbers when added to 4
are less than 10.

You can't combine your 2 formatting methods to do this.
