What have you tried? What's the definition of a relation? Reflexive relation? Symmetric relation? Transitive relation?

Showe some work. - Dec 2nd 2012, 08:51 AMujnikmRe: discrete math relations simple problems help !!!!
I know them and they are

Reflexive relation R on A, if ∀a ∈ A, (a, a) ∈ R.

Symmetric relation R on A, if ∀a∀b ∈ A, (a, b) ∈ R → (b, a) ∈ R.

Antisymmetric relation R on A, if ∀a∀b ∈ A, (a, b) ∈ R ^ (b, a) ∈ R → a=b.

Transitive relation R on A, if ∀a∀b∀c ∈ A, (a, b) ∈ R ^ (b, c) ∈ R → (a, c) ∈ R.

In the second question A) it's every thing except antisymmetric

b) is symmetric only

In the first one A) 2^16

B)2^12 , 2^10

Am I right ??? - Dec 2nd 2012, 09:25 AMPlatoRe: discrete math relations simple problems help !!!!

The answer to A) depends on your textbook. It may be because some authors do not allow an empty relation.

The answer to B) depends on how you are reading the question.

I read it as, "How many relations are reflexive and symmetric.

That would be .

But there are reflexive relations.

And there are symmetric relations.
