MAT 243 Discrete Mathematical Structures


Think about the not equal 6= relationship on the integers.

(a) Prove 6= is not transitive

(b) Prove 1 6 = 2.

Based on your experience in problem 1, you might suspect that R2 is reflexive if a relation R to S is symmetric.

You can prove or disprove it.


Question 1

If we have a set of integers, it is possible to express non-equality among the integers.

The order of the integers is increasing, so… clearly proves that it is not transitive since


Question 2

If the set has symmetry, the relation on to R will be.

R is symmetrical but is not part the relation so it is not reflexive
