TEST-3/MAD2104 Page 4 of 4 7. (15 pts.) (a) How many edges does a tree with 37 vertices have? (b) What is the maximum number of leaves that a binary tree of height 10 can have? (c) If a full 3-ary tree has 24 internal vertices, how many vertices does it have? 8. (10 pts.) Suppose that R is an equivalence relation on a nonempty set A. Recall that for each a ε A, the equivalence class of a is the set [a] = {s | (a,s) ε R}. Prove the following proposition: If (a,b) ε R, then [a] = [b]. Hint: The issue is the set equality, [a] = [b], under the hypothesis that (a,b) ε R. So pretend (a,b) ε R and use this to show s ε [a] s ε [b], and s ε [b] s ε [a]. Be explicit regarding your use of the relational properties of R.

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.
