Let A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,12} and define the relation R on A by m R n iff
m|n.
Write the definitions of the properties, reflexive, antisymmetric and transitive and the use
the definitions to determine whether each property holds for this relation.

(a) Is this relation a partial ordering relation? Why? If so, draw its Hasse
diagram.

(b)Write the (boolean, that is the yes/no) matrix of this relation.

Solution Summary

A relation is investigated as to whether it is reflexive, antisymmetric and transitive. A Hasse diagram and Boolean matrix are found. The solution is detailed and well presented.
