Generally, relation refers to the blood connection between the people. For example, brother and sister, father and son etc.
But in mathematics, if A and B are two sets in which A × B is called the cartesian product of A and B, any subset of A × B is called a relation from A to B. The relation from A to B is denoted by R. The relation from A is called a relation on A.
For examples,
Let, A = {3, 5} and B = {4, 6}
Then, A × B = {3, 5} × {4, 6}
= {(3, 4), (3, 6), (5, 4), (5, 6)}
Let, R = {(3, 4), (5, 6)}
So, R is a subset of A × B.
So, R is a relation from A to B.
A relation can be represented in 5 ways as:
By the set of ordered pairs
A relation can be represented in the set of ordered pairs in which there are two components. The first component is called x-component and the second component is called y-component.
For example,
By standard description using a rule or a formula
A relation can be represented by using the formulas and standard description.
For example,
By Table
A relation can also be represented in table which one as follows: -
x | 2 | 4 |
y | 4 | 6 |
By Graph
A relation can also be shown in graphs by the use of graph paper. For example,
Example for graph
By Arrows Diagram
Example for arrow diagram
Let R be a relation from A to B. Then, the set of all first elements of the ordered pairs of R are called the domain. For example,
Let, A = (1, 2) and B = (3, 4)
Domain of relation = (1, 3)
Similarly, the set of all the second elements of the ordered pair of R is called the range. For example,
Let, A = (1, 2) and B = (3, 4)
Range of a Relation = (2, 4)
The interchanging of x-component and y-components of each pair of the relation of R is denoted by R^{-1}.
For example,
Let, A = {1, 2} and B = {3, 4}
Here, A × B = {1, 2} × {3, 4} = {(1, 3) (1, 4) (2, 3) (2, 4)}
Thus, R^{-1}= {(3, 1), (4, 1), (3, 2), (4, 2)}
Solution:
Here,
R = {(2, 4), (3, 6), (4, 8), (5, 10)}
∴ R^{−1} = {(4, 2), (6, 3), (8, 4), (10, 5)}
Solution:
Here,
R = {(a, w), (b, x), (c, y), (d, z)}
∴ R^{−1} = {(w, a), (x, b), (y, c), (z, d)}
Solution:
Here,
R = {(1, 3), (5, 7), (9, 11), (13, 15)}
∴ R^{−1} = {(3, 1), (7, 5), (11, 9), (15, 13)}
Solution:
Here,
R = {(p, a), (q, b), (r, c), (s, d)}
∴ R^{−1}= {(a, p), (b, q), (c, r), (d, s)}
Solution:
Here,
R = {(1, 2), (1, 4), (2, 2), (2, 4), (3, 4)}
Domain of R = a set of x-components of each ordered pair of the relation R.
= {1, 1, 2, 2, 3}
= {1, 2, ,3}
Range of R = a set of y-components of each ordered piar of the relation R.
= {2, 4, 2, 4, 4}
= {2, 4}
Solution:
Here,
Domain of R = set of x-component
= {2, 2, 2, 3, 3}
= {2, 3}
Range of R = set of y-component
= {a, b, c, a, b}
= {a, b, c}
Solution:
Here,
Domain of R = set of x-component
= {−1, 2,−3, 4}
range of R = set of y-component
= {2,−4, 6,−8}
Solution:
Here,
Domain of R = {(a, b, c, a, b}
= {a, b, c}
Range of R = {p, q, r, q, r}
= {p. q. r}
Solution:
R_{1} = {(a, p), (b, q), (c, r)}
Solution:
R_{2} = {(2, 4), (3, 5), (4, 6)}
Solution:
R_{3} = {(a, x), (a, y), (c, x), (c, z)}
Solution:
R_{4} = {(2, 7), (2, 8), (4, 7), (5, 7), (5, 9)}
