    well could you explain it please? say i have a set of A {1,2,3,4} and R1 = {(a,b)| a is less than equal to b and you have to find out if its transitive or not

    Do you know the transitive property of equality? R1 is not the same but is the same concept.

    If x = y and y = z, then x = z.

    ehh yeah i get that concept but what happens when you have sets such as (1,1) (1,2) and so forth till (4,4)

    In this problem, I think the task is to test: If a≤ b and b ≤ c, then is it true that a ≤ c? For a, b, and c, use the 4 numbers in set A.

    We have to test in this way; If 1≤ 3 and 3 ≤ 4, then is it true that 1 ≤ 4 ? If that is true for the numbers in set A, then the R1 is a transitive property for the set A.

    Check this: Transitive Property of Inequalities Any of the following properties: If a < b and b < c , then a < c. If a ≤ b and b ≤ c , then a ≤ c. If a > b and b > c , then a > c. If a ≥ b and b ≥ c , then a ≥ c. Note: This is a property of equality and inequalities. One must be cautious, however, when attempting to develop arguments using the transitive property in other settings. Here is an example of an unsound application of the transitive property: "Team A defeated team B, and team B defeated team C. Therefore, team A will defeat team C." http://www.mathwords.com/t/transitive_property_inequalities.htm

    The transitive property of inequality holds for all real numbers. It will hold for the set you are given in this problem.

    I will help you as much as my knowledge allows. On the question you had about a 2-member set " (1,1)" --- the transitive property of inequality would go as follows. If 1 ≤ 1 and 1 ≤ 1, then is 1 ≤ 1? The answer is yes. I know that sounds crazy and unnecessary but when the set contains one element, in this case, just the "1" that is the only set member that can be tested. Note: the set consisting of {1,1} is the same as the set {1}.

    I don't know. Do you mean as in calling somebody "bro" or "sis" or calling as on the phone or whatever?

    If I refer to anybody, I just write "you" or the person's user id. So, if I called you anything, it would be Zaeboi222 or maybe just Zaeboi.
