    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.
