This tool helps you calculate the number of unique elements in a set.

## Cardinality Calculator – Explanation

This Cardinality Calculator helps you determine the cardinality (number of unique elements) of a set you provide. Simply enter a list of elements separated by commas, and click “Calculate”.

### How to Use It:

- Enter the elements of your set in the input field. Elements should be separated by commas.
- Click the “Calculate” button.
- The result will show the number of unique elements in the provided list.

### How It Calculates the Result:

The calculator uses JavaScript to perform the following steps:

- It splits the input string into an array of elements, using the comma as a delimiter.
- An ES6 Set is used to filter out duplicate elements, as Sets can only contain unique values.
- The cardinality is determined by counting the number of elements in the Set.

### Limitations:

The accuracy of the results depends on correct input formatting. Make sure to:

- Separate each element with a comma.
- Avoid using extra spaces or special characters that might be misinterpreted as part of an element.
