MAT 243 Week 15/15 Written Homework 1. Consider the not equal 6 = relation on the integers. (a) Prove that 6 = is not transitive. Proof. We need to show that there exist integers a , b and c such that ( a, b ) 6 = and ( b, c ) 6 = but ( a, c ) / 6 =. Let a = 1, b = 2 and c = 1. Then (1 , 2) 6 = and (2 , 1) 6 = but (1 , 1) / 6 =. (b) Prove that 1 6 = 2 1. Proof. Since (1 , 2) 6 = and (2 , 1) 6 =, (1 , 1) 6 = 2 by definition of the squared relations. 2. Based on your experience in problem 1b, you may suspect that if a relation R on S is symmetric, then R 2 is reflexive. Prove of disprove this.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
