Let L be the set of all lines in XY-plane and R be the relation in L defined as R = {(L1, L2): L1 is parallel to L2}. Show that R is an equivalence relation. Find the set of all lines related to the line y = 2x + 4.

Answer :

We have, L is the set of lines.

R = {(L1, L2) : L1 is parallel to L2} be a relation on L


Now,


Proof :


To prove that relation is equivalence, we need to prove that it is reflexive, symmetric and transitive.


Reflexivity : For Reflexivity, we need to prove that-


(a, a) R


Since a line is always parallel to itself.


(L1, L2) R


R is reflexive


Symmetric : For Symmetric, we need to prove that-


If (a, b) R, then (b, a) R


Let L1, L2 L and (L1, L2) R


L1 is parallel to L2


L2 is parallel to L1


(L1, L2) R


R is symmetric


Transitive: For Transitivity, we need to prove that-


If (a, b) R and (b, c) R, then (a, c) R


Let L1, L2 and L3 L such that (L1, L2) R and (L2, L3) R


L1 is parallel to L2 and L2 is parallel to L3


L1 is parallel to L3


(L1, L3) R


R is transitive


Since, R is reflexive, symmetric and transitive, so R is an equivalence relation.


And, the set of lines parallel to the line y = 2x + 4 is y = 2x + c For all c R


where R is the set of real numbers.
