Let X = {5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40}. Define a relation on X as follows. For a, b is in X, a b if b can be obtained from a by adding a (possibly empty) collection of dimes (10 cents) and quarters (25 cents). So, for example, 25 35, but 25 30. List all minimal elements of (X, ). (Enter your answers as a comma-separated list

    lets start with 5 you cannot add 10 or 25 to 5 to get 10 but you can add 10 to 5 to get 15, so \(5R15\)

    I think minimal element is such that it cannot be the result of the relation . So out of {5,10,15,20....}, we cannot get 5 or 10 by the operation.

    \(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @pooja195 I think minimal element is such that it cannot be the result of the relation . So out of {5,10,15,20....}, we cannot get 5 or 10 by the operation. \(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}\) Therefore 5 and 10 would be the answers

    Rember that minimal elements cannot be obtained as a result of the relation.
