Show that the relation R in the set A of all the books in a library of a college, given by R = {(x, y) : x and y have same number of pages} is an equivalence relation.

**NCERT Solutions:**

Given that Set A is the set of all books in the library of a college and R = {x, y): x and y have the same number of pages}.

Since x and x has the same number of pages, then (x, x) ∈ R. Thus, the given relation R is reflexive.

Now, let x and y have the same number of pages, then y and x also have the same number of pages. Thus, (x, y) ∈ R and (y, x) ∈ R. Hence, the given relation R is symmetric.

Now, let x and y and have the same number of pages and y and z have the same number of pages. Then x and z have the same number of pages. Thus, (x, y), (y, z) ∈ R and (x, z) ∈ R. Hence, the given relation R is transitive.

Show that the relation R in the set A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} given by ? = {(?, ?): |? − ?| ?? ????}, is an equivalence relation. Show that all the elements of {1, 3, 5} are related to each other and all the elements of {2, 4} are related to each other. But no element of {1, 3, 5} is related to any element of {2, 4}.

**NCERT Solutions:**

Given that A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} and R = {(a, b): |a-b| is even}.

Since for any element a ∈ A, we have |a – a| = 0 (which is even). Thus, (a, a) ∈ R. Thus, the given relation R is reflexive.

Now, Let (a, b) ∈ R. Then, |? − ?| ?? ???? ⇒|–(a –b)|= |b – a| is also even ⇒ (b, a) ∈ R. Thus, the given relation R is symmetric.

Now, let (a, b) ∈ R and (b, c) ∈ R such that |a-b| is even and |b – c| is even. So, (a-b) is even and (b-c) is even (a – c) = (a – b) + (b – c) is even. |? − ?| ?? ????. Thus, (a, c) ∈ R. Hence, the given relation R is transitive.

Thus, the given relation is equivalence relation.

Since all elements of the set {1, 3, 5} are related to each other and the elements of this subset are odd. Thus, |1 – 3|, |3 – 1|, |5 –1|, |1 – 5|, |3 – 5|, |5 – 3| are even.

Similarly, all elements of the set {2, 4} are related to each other as all the elements of this subset are even. Thus, |2 – 4|, |4 – 2| are even.

But, |1 – 2|, |2 – 1|, |1 –4|, |4 – 1|, |3 – 2|, |2 – 3|, |5 – 2|, |2 – 5| all are odd. Thus, no element of {1, 3, 5} is related to any element of {2, 4}.

Given that set ? = {? ∈ ?: 0 ≤ ? ≤ 12} {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12}.

Since for any element a ∈ A, we have |a – a| = 0 (which is multiple of 4). Thus, (a, a) ∈ R. Thus, the given relation R is reflexive.

Now, let (a, b) ∈ R and |a – b| is a multiple of 4. Thus, |– (b – a)| = |b – a| is a multiple of 4. Therefore, (b, a) ∈ R. Thus, the given relation R is symmetric.

Now, let (a, b), (b, c) ∈ R such that |a – b| is a multiple of 4 and |b – c| is a multiple of 4. Thus, (a – b) is a multiple of 4 and (b – c) is a multiple of 4. (a – c) = (a – b) + (b – c) is a multiple of 4. |a – c| is a multiple of 4. Hence, the given relation R is transitive.

Thus, the given relation is equivalence relation.

The set of elements related to 1 is {1, 5, 9} as |1 – 1|, |5 – 1|, |9 – 1| is a multiple of 4.

(ii)

Given that set ? = {? ∈ ?: 0 ≤ ? ≤ 12} {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12}.

Since for any element a ∈ A, we have a = a. Thus, (a, a) ∈ R. Thus, the given relation R is reflexive.

Now, let (a, b) ∈ R and a = b and b = a. Therefore, (b, a) ∈ R. Thus, the given relation R is symmetric.

Now, let (a, b), (b, c) ∈ R such that a = b and b = c. Thus, a = c. So, (a, c) ∈ R. Hence, the given relation R is transitive.

Thus, the given relation is equivalence relation.

Since 1 = 1, the elements in R that are related to 1 will be those elements from set A which are equal to 1. Hence, the set of elements related to 1 is {1}.

**Give an example of a relation. Which is**

**(i) Symmetric but neither reflexive nor transitive.**

**NCERT Solutions:**

Let A = {5, 6, 7}. Define a relation R on A as R = {(5, 6), (6, 5)}.

Relation R is not reflexive as (5, 5), (6, 6), (7, 7) ∉ R. Now, as (5, 6) ∈ R and also (6, 5) ∈ R, R is symmetric.

Since (5, 6), (6, 5) ∈ R, but (5, 5) ∉ R. Thus, R is not transitive.

Hence, relation R is symmetric but not reflexive or transitive.

**(ii) Transitive but neither reflexive nor symmetric.**

**NCERT Solutions:**

Let R = {(a, c): a < c}.

Since for any a ∈ R, a cannot be strictly less than a itself, we have (a, a) ∉ R. Thus, the relation R is not reflexive.

Now, (1, 3) ∈ R (as 1 < 3) but 2 is not less than 1. Thus, (2, 1) ∉ R. Therefore, R is not symmetric.

Now, let (a, b), (b, c) ∈ R such that a < b and b < c. Thus, a < c so (a, c) ∈ R. Hence, R is transitive.

Hence, relation R is transitive but not reflexive and symmetric.

**(iii) Reflexive and symmetric but not transitive.**

**NCERT Solutions:**

Let A = {4, 6, 8} and a relation R on A as

A = {(4, 4), (6, 6), (8, 8), (4, 6), (6, 4), (6, 8), (8, 6)}.

Since {(4, 4), (6, 6), (8, 8)} ∈ R, Thus, the relation R is not reflexive.

Since (4, 6) ∈ R and (6, 4) ∈ R, (6, 8) ∈ R and (8, 6) ∈ R therefore, R is symmetric.

Since (4, 6), (6, 8) ∈ R but (4, 8) ∉ R, then R is not transitive.

Hence, relation R is reflexive and symmetric but not transitive.

**(iv) Reflexive and transitive but not symmetric.**

**NCERT Solutions:**

Let a relation R in R as

Since, then (a, a) ∈ R. Thus, the relation is reflexive.

Now let (2, 1) ∈ R such that . But, (1, 2) ∉ R. Thus, R is not symmetric.

Now let (a, b), (b, c) ∈ R such that. Then,. Thus, (a, c) ∈ R. Thus, the relation R is transitive.

Hence, the relation R is reflexive and transitive but not symmetric.

**(v) Symmetric and transitive but not reflexive.**

**NCERT Solutions:**

Let A = {–5, –6} and a relation R on A as R = {(−5, −6), (−6, −5), (−5, −5)}

Since (−6, −6) ∉ R, Thus, the relation R is not reflexive.

Since (−5, −6) ∈ R and (−6, −5) ∈ R, then the relation R is symmetric.

Since (−5, −6), (−6, −5) ∈ R and (–5, –5) ∈ R, then the relation R is transitive.

Hence, relation R is symmetric and transitive but not reflexive.

Show that the relation R in the set A of points in a plane given by R = {(P, Q) : distance of the point P from the origin is same as the distance of the point Q from the origin}, is an equivalence relation. Further, show that the set of all points related to a point P ≠ (0, 0) is the circle passing through P with origin as center.

**NCERT Solutions:**

Given that R = {(P, Q): Distance of point P from the origin is the same as the distance of point Q from the origin}

Let (P, P) ∈ R. since the distance of point P from the origin is always the same as the distance of the same point P from the origin. Thus, the given relation R is reflexive.

Now, Let (P, Q) ∈ R. It means, the distance of point P from the origin is the same as the distance of point Q from the origin. In other words, we can also say that the distance of point Q from the origin is the same as the distance of point P from the origin. Then, (Q, P) ∈ R. Thus, the given relation R is symmetric.

Now, Let (P, Q), (Q, S) ∈ R. It means, the distance of points P and Q from the origin is the same and also, the distance of points Q and S from the origin is the same. Thus, the distance of points P and S from the origin is the same. So, (P, S) ∈ R. Hence, the given relation R is transitive.

Therefore, R is an equivalence relation.

If O (0, 0) is the origin and the set of all points related to P ≠ (0, 0) such that OP = k, then the set of all points related to P is at a distance of k from the origin. Thus, this set of points forms a circle with the center as the origin and this circle passes through point P.

Since every polygon has the same number of sides with itself. Then, (P_{1}, P_{1}) ∈ R. Thus, the given relation R is reflexive.

Let (P_{1}, P_{2}) ∈ R. Then, P_{1} has same number of sides as the polygon P_{2} or P_{2} has same number of sides as the polygon P_{1}. Thus, (P_{2}, P_{1}) ∈ R. Hence, the given relation R is symmetric.

Therefore, R is an equivalence relation.

The elements in A related to the right-angled triangle (T) with sides 3, 4, and 5 are those polygons which have 3 sides (Since T is a polygon with 3 sides). Hence, the set of all elements in A related to triangle T is the set of all triangles.
