Question

Determine whether the relation R on N is reﬂexive, symmetric, and/or transitive. Prove your answer.

a)R = {(x,y) : x,y ∈N,2|x,2|y}.

b)R = {(x,y) : x,y ∈ A}. A = {1,2,3,4}

c)R = {(x,y) : x,y ∈N,x is even ,y is odd }.

Answer #1

Prove that if the relation R is symmetric, then its transitive
closure, t(R)=R*, is also symmetric. Please provide step by step
solutions

Consider the relation R= {(1,2),(2,2),(2,3),(3,1),(3,3)}. Is R
transitive, not reflexive, symmetric or equivalence relation?

Disprove: The following relation R on set Q is either reflexive,
symmetric, or transitive. Let t and z be elements of Q. then t R z
if and only if t = (z+1) * n for some integer n.

Determine the distance equivalence classes for the relation R is
defined on ℤ by a R b if |a - 2| = |b - 2|.
I had to prove it was an equivalence relation as well, but that
part was not hard. Just want to know if the logic and presentation
is sound for the last part:
8.48) A relation R is defined on ℤ by a R b if |a - 2| = |b -
2|. Prove that R...

“if r and s are transitive, then r n s is transitive”

Let
A be the set of all integers, and let R be the relation "m divides
n." Determine whether or not the given relation R, on the set A, is
reflexive, symmetric, antisymmetric, or transitive.

1. Prove p∧q=q∧p
2. Prove[((∀x)P(x))∧((∀x)Q(x))]→[(∀x)(P(x)∧Q(x))]. Remember to
be strict in your treatment of quantifiers
.3. Prove R∪(S∩T) = (R∪S)∩(R∪T).
4.Consider the relation R={(x,y)∈R×R||x−y|≤1} on Z. Show that
this relation is reflexive and symmetric but not transitive.

Construct a binary relation R on a nonempty set A satisfying the
given condition, justify your solution.
(a) R is an equivalence relation.
(b) R is transitive, but not symmetric.
(c) R is neither symmetric nor reflexive nor transitive.
(d) (5 points) R is antisymmetric and symmetric.

Consider the following relation on the set Z: xRy ?
x2 + y is even.
For each question below, if your answer is "yes", then prove it, if
your answer is "no", then show a counterexample.
(i) Is R reflexive?
(ii) Is R symmetric?
(iii) Is R antisymmetric?
(iv) Is R transitive?
(v) Is R an equivalence relation? If it is, then describe the
equivalence classes of R. How many equivalence classes are
there?

Consider the relation R defined on the real line R, and defined
as follows: x ∼ y if and only if the distance from the point x to
the point y is less than 3. Study if this relation is reflexive,
symmetric, and transitive. Which points are related to 2?
