Solution Summary

This solution defines what it means if a product is said to be reflexive, symmetric/antisymmetric, transitive or Boolean. It then shows how to find if a given relation is reflexive, symmetric, antisymmetric, or transitive and explains the logic behind the answer, then shows how to find the Boolean product of two matrices.

a. Reflexive means (x,x) E R for all real number x. However, (2,2) is not E R since the first coordinate 2 is not = 1. R is not reflexive.

b. Symmetry means (x,y) E R implies (y,x) E R. However, (1,2) E R but (2,1) is not E R is not symmetric.

c. Antisymmetric means (x,y) E R and x is not = y ...
