    Drawing a binary graph

    This problem is confusing me a little, specifically the "x|y."






    Would this be correct? The loops around the numbers signify a relation.

    x|y means x divides y. that is, y/x = integer

    now can you continue?

    Hello, Don!

    Do you understand that x|y means " x\text{ divides }y" ?

    Since every number divides itself, your diagram is correct . . . so far.

    But you missed a few others . . .

    . . 2 divides 4, 2 divides 6, 2 divides 8.
    . . 3 divides 6.
    . . 4 divides 8.


    You should have arrows indicating those pairs, too:

    . \begin{array}{ccc}& & 4 \\ & \nearrow & \\ 2 & \rightarrow & 6 \\ & \searrow & \\ & & 8 \end{array}\qquad \text{and }\;3\to6\qquad \text{and }\;4\to8

    Yeah, creative

    I made it with MathType. (Which really takes less time.)

    The following code is required:

    \begin{array}{*{20}c}
    {} & {} & 4 \\
    {} & \nearrow & {} \\
    2 & \to & 6 \\
    {} & \searrow & {} \\
    {} & {} & 8 \\
    \end{array}, so

    \begin{array}{*{20}c}<br />
{} & {} & 4 \\<br />
{} & \nearrow & {} \\<br />
2 & \to & 6 \\<br />
{} & \searrow & {} \\<br />
{} & {} & 8 \\<br />
\end{array}
