Q. 28

# Let T be the set

Answer :

Given that,

R be a relation on T defined as aRb if a is congruent to b a, b T

Now,

aRa a is congruent to a, which is true since every triangle is congruent to itself.

(a,a) R a T

R is reflexive.

Let aRb a is congruent to b

b is congruent to a

bRa

(a,b) R (b,a) R a, b T

R is symmetric.

Let aRb a is congruent to b and bRc b is congruent to c

a is congruent to c

aRc

(a,b) R and (b,c) R (a,c) R a, b,c T

R is transitive.

Hence, R is an equivalence relation.
