# Relation R in the

Answer :

It is given that Relation R in the set Z of all integers defined as

R = {(x, y) : x – y is an integer}

Now, for every x ϵ Z, (x, x) ϵ R, as x –x = 0 is an integer.

R is reflexive.

Now, for every x, y ϵ Z if (x, y) ϵ R, then x – y is an integer.

-(x y) is also an integer.

(y x) is an integer.

(y, x) ϵ R

R is symmetric.

Now, for every (x, y) and (y, z) ϵ R where x, y, z ϵ R,

(x y) and (y z) is an integer.

(x z) = (x y) + (y x) is an integer.

(x, z) ϵ R

R is transitive.

Therefore, R is reflexive, symmetric and transitive.
