    I think I can construct 3 * 4 + 1 distinct binary relations.

    I think I was lost. To know the number of binary relations I can get from to given set with known cardinalities I need to know the cardinality of the power set of the cartesian product. I know that the cardinality of a power set is given by:\[\#P(A) = 2^{\#A}\]

    And I know too that the cardinality of the Cartesian product is equal to the product of the cardinalities of every set involved. So \[\#(A\times B) = \#A\cdot \#B\]

    So \[\#P(A\times B)=2^{\#A\cdot \#B}\]

    So the number of binary relations I cant get is given by: \[ 2^{12} \]
