Ex 1.1, 1 Determine whether each of the following relations are reflexive, symmetric and transitive: (iii) Relation R in the set A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} as R = {(x, y): y is divisible by x} R = {(x, y): y is divisible by x} Check Reflexive Since x is divisible by x ∴ (x, x) ∈ R ∴ R is reflexive Check symmetric To check whether symmetric or not, If (x, y) ∈ R, then (y, x) ∈ R Here (2, 4) ∈ R , as 4 is divisible by 2 but (4, 2) ∉ R as 2 is not divisible by 4 ∴ R is not symmetric Check transitive If y is divisible by x & z is divisible by y, then z is divisible by x ∴ If (x, y) ∈ R & (y, z) ∈ R , then (x, z) ∈ R ∴ R is transitive
