I have a question here that states:
With a table like that in Fig. 2.2, illustrate a relation on the set {a,b,c,d} that is:
i) not symmetric and not antisymmetric
and ii) transitive
(the table in question is your basic 5x5 table which abcd in both the x and y axis, and the corresponding relations are checked off in the boxes)
I thought about it and resulted in:
i) {(a,a), (b,b), (c,b), (c,c)} --> does this make sense?
and for ii) could i just put: {(a,a), (b,b), (c,c), (d,d)}?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
