    Reflexive

    How do I show 3|(a+b) is reflexive?

    a ~ a
    3m = 2a

    Now what?

    You question makes no sense.
    Relations are reflexive.
    Did you mean to ask about a relation?
    If so, what relation?

    a ~ b if 3|(a+b) is the relation.

    That relation is not reflexive.
    1 + 1 = 2\;\& \,3\not|~2.
