Why is x!=y not a transitive relation? Since if x!=y, y!=z, then x!=z?

    Maybe I should have clarified: != is does not equal. Also, I'm just trying to understand since the solutions didn't list transitive as an answer

    I know what != means. Because x does not = y, and y!=z. Therefore x==z.

    take this example x=5, y=4, z=5 X!=y,y!=z but x=z so just because x!=y and y!=z does not mean x!=z
