EE 369 Homework #8 Solutions (Sixth Edition) Section 4.1 ----------- 10) Let S={0,1,2,4,6} Test the following relations on S for reflexivity, symmetry, transitivity, and antisymmetry. a) \rho={(0,0),(1,1),(2,2),(4,4),(6,6),(0,1),(1,2),(2,4),(4,6)} Solution: reflexive,antisymmetric b) \rho={(0,1),(1,0),(2,4),(4,2),(4,6),(6,4)} Solution: symmetric c) \rho={(0,1),(1,2),(0,2),(2,0),(2,1),(1,0),(0,0),(1,1),(2,2)} Solution: symmetric, transitive d) \rho={(0,0),(1,1),(2,2),(4,4),(6,6),(4,6),(6,4)} Solution: reflexive, symmetric, transitive e) \rho=\empty Solution: symmetric, antisymmetric, transitive 17) Find the reflexive, symmetric and transitive closures of each of the relations in (8) above. Solution: a) reflexive closure = \rho itself symmetric closure - add (1,0), (2,1), (4,2), (6,4) transitive closure - add (0,2), (1,4), (2,6), (0,4), (0,6), (1,6) b) reflexive closure - add (0,0), (1,1), (2,2), (4,4), (6,6) symmetric closure - \rho itself transitive closure - add (0,0), (1,1), (2,2), (2,6) (4,4), (6,6), (6,2) c) reflexive closure - add (4,4), (6,6) symmetric closure = transitive closure = \rho itself d) \rho is its own closure with respect to all three properties e) reflexive closure - add (0,0), (1,1), (2,2), (4,4), (6,6) symmetric closure = transitive closure = \rho itself 20) Does it make sense to look for the closure of a relation with respect to the following properties? Why or why not? a) irreflexive property Solution: No- if the relation is irreflexive, it is its own irreflexive closure. If the relation is not irreflexive, there

must be some x \in S with (x,x) in the relation; extending the relation will not remove this pair,so no extension can be irreflexive. b) asymmetric property Solution: No- if the relation is asymmetric, it is its own asymmetric closure. If the relation is not asymmetric, there must be two pairs (x,y) and (y,x) or one pair (x,x) in the relation; extending the relation will not remove these pairs,so no extension can be asymmetric. 24) Given the partial orderings in Exercise 20, name any least elements, minimal elements, greatest elements, and maximal elements. a. S= {a,b,c} p={(a,a),(b,b),(c,c),(a,b),(b,c),(a,c)} Solution: a is minimal and least c is maximal and greatest b. S= {a,b,c,d} \rho={(a,a),(b,b),(c,c),(d,d),(a,b),(a,c)} Solution: a and d are minimal b, c, d are maximal c. S={\empty,{a},{a,b},{c},{a,c},{b}} A p B <-> A \subseteq B Solution: \empty is minimal and least {a,c} and {a,b} are maximal 30e) Let \rho be a binary relation on a set S. Then a binary relation called the inverse of \rho, denoted \rho^-1 is defined x \rho^-1 <-> y \rho x. Prove that if \rho is a transitive relation on a set S, then \rho^-1 is transitive. Solution : Let x \rho^-1 y and y \rho^-1 z. Then y \rho x and z \rho y. By the transitivity of \rho , z \rho x and therefore x \rho^-1 z. 40) a) Given the partition {1,2} and {3,4} of the set S={1,2,3,4}, list the ordered pairs in the corresponding equivalence relation.

### What students are saying

• 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.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• 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.
