V W X Y ZX={V W X,    V W Y,    V X Y,    V X Z,    W X Y}Self-joining = * XV  W X Y from V W X and V W YV X  Y  Z from V X Y and V X Z

Apriori pruning principle:

Example of Apriori pruning principle

V W X Y ZX={V W X,    V W Y,    V X Y,    V X Z,    W X YAccording to Apriori Pruning principle V X Y Z is removed because V Y Z is not in X.
