## What is identity relation class 11?

The identity function is a function which returns the same value, which was used as its argument. It is also called an identity relation or identity map or identity transformation. If f is a function, then identity relation for argument x is represented as f(x) = x, for all values of x.

**What is the identity relation set theory?**

Let A be any set. Then the relation R={(x,x):x∈A} on A is called the identity relation on A. Thus, in an identity relation, every element is related to itself only.

**What is difference between reflexive and identity relation?**

Identity Relation》Relation which associates every element of a set to itself and not to any other element. Reflexive Relation》Relation which associates every element of a set to itself and may be to any other element of the set.

### What is identity relation example?

In other words, a relation IA on A is called the identity-relation if every element of A is related itself only. For example : If A = {1,2,3}, then the relation IA ={(1,1),(2,2),(3,3)} is the identity-relation on set A. But If we add (1,3) and (3,2) ordered pair in the set then it will not be an identity-relation.

**What is a relation in discrete math Give 5 examples of a relation?**

A relation is an Equivalence Relation if it is reflexive, symmetric, and transitive. Example − The relation R={(1,1),(2,2),(3,3),(1,2),(2,1),(2,3),(3,2),(1,3),(3,1)} on set A={1,2,3} is an equivalence relation since it is reflexive, symmetric, and transitive.

**What is an identity equation?**

An identity is an equation which is always true, no matter what values are substituted. 2 x + 3 x = 5 x is an identity because 2 x + 3 x will always equal regardless of the value of . Identities can be written with the sign ≡, so the example could be written as 2 x + 3 x ≡ 5 x .

#### Why identity relation is an equivalence relation?

By definition, a relation is said to be an equivalence relation iff it is reflexive, symmetric and transitive. Since R satisfies these three properties, we conclude that R is an equivalence relation.

**How is identity relation transitive?**

Formally, a binary relation R(x,y) is transitive if whenever R(x,y) and R(y,z) it follows that R(x,z). Orderings tend to be transitive. If x>y and y>z then x>z. Equality is also transitive: If a=b and b=c, then a=c.

**Is identity relation a transitive relation?**

Yes. Transitive relation says , if (x,y)€R and (y,z)€R then (x,z) €R.

## How do you write relations in discrete mathematics?

A relation can be represented using a directed graph. The number of vertices in the graph is equal to the number of elements in the set from which the relation has been defined. For each ordered pair (x, y) in the relation R, there will be a directed edge from the vertex ‘x’ to vertex ‘y’.

**What is relation in DM?**

A relation between two sets is a collection of ordered pairs containing one object from each set. If the object x is from the first set and the object y is from the second set, then the objects are said to be related if the ordered pair (x,y) is in the relation.
