Let X={1,2,3,4,5}, Y={1,2}.
Define relation R on g(x) by ARB iff AY =BY
*Note: g(x) is the power set of x and R is a equivalence relation (no need to prove this)*

a) C={2,3}. List the elements of [C], the equivalence class containing C.
b) How many distinct equivalence classes are there?
c) Suppose X={1,2,...,n}, n2, Y and R the same as above.
How many equivalence classes are there, in terms of n?
d) Suppose X={1,2,...,n}, n2, and Y={1,2,...,m}, mn. R the same as above.
How many equivalence classes are there, in terms of n?
