MAS 111 FOUNDATION OF MATHEMATICS ASSIGNMENT 10 HINTS 1. Here are some relations on a set A = { 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 } . Determine for each relation whether it is reflexive, whether it is transitive, whether is it antisymmetric. Draw the directed graph that represents each relation. (a) R = { (1 , 1) , (2 , 2) , (2 , 3) , (3 , 2) , (3 , 3) , (3 , 4) , (4 , 3) , (4 , 4) , (5 , 5) } . (b) S = { (1 , 1) , (1 , 2) , (1 , 4) , (1 , 5) , (2 , 2) , (2 , 4) , (2 , 5) , (3 , 3) , (3 , 4) , (3 , 5) , (4 , 4) , (4 , 5) , (5 , 5) } . (c) T = { (1 , 3) , (1 , 5) , (2 , 4) , (3 , 1) , (3 , 5) , (4 , 2) , (5 , 1) , (5 , 3) } . (d) U = { (1 , 1) , (1 , 3) , (1 , 5) , (2 , 2) , (2 , 4) , (3 , 1) , (3 , 3) , (3 , 5) , (4 , 2) , (4 , 4) , (5 , 1) , (5 , 3) , (5 , 5) } . Hints : To solve such questions, first draw the directed graphs (arrow diagrams) and then decide whether they are reflexive, or transitive or antisymmetric. (a) R = { (1 , 1) , (2 , 2) , (2 , 3) , (3 , 2) , (3 , 3) , (3 , 4) , (4 , 3) , (4 , 4) , (5 , 5) } . r r r r r 2 3 5 1 4 - ± - ± Each of element has a loop. Please add these loops when you read it. R is reflexive, symmetric, but not transitive ((2 , 3) , (3 , 4) are in R but (2 , 4) is not), not anti-symmetric (since both (2 , 3) and (3 , 2) are in R ). (b) S = { (1 , 1) , (1 , 2) , (1 , 4) , (1 , 5) , (2 , 2) , (2 , 4) , (2 , 5) , (3 , 3) , (3 , 4) , (3 , 5) , (4 , 4) , (4 , 5) , (5 , 5) } 1

In each such case draw the Hasse diagram of the partial order. (b) Which (if any) of the relations in question 1 are equivalence re- lations? In each such case, list the equivalence classes into which the relation partitions A . Hints
