Normally relation deals with matching of elements from the first set called

DOMAIN with the element of the second set called RANGE.
A relation “R” is the rule that connects or links the elements of one set with the elements of the other set.
Some examples of relations are listed below:
  1. “Is a brother of “
  2. “Is a sister of “
  3. “Is a husband of “
  4. “Is equal to “
  5. “Is greater than “
  6. “Is less than “
relations between two sets are indicated by an arrow coming from one
element of the first set going to the element of the other set.
Relations Between Two Sets
Find relations between two sets
The relation can be denoted as:
R = {(a, b): a is an element of the first set, b is an element of the second set}
Consider the following table
1 1441271737538
is the relation which can be written as a set of ordered pairs {(-3,
-6), (0.5, 1), (1, 2), (2, 4), (5, 10), (6, 12)}. The table shows that
the relation satisfies the equation y=2x. The relation R defining the
set of all ordered pairs (x, y) such that y = 2x can be written
symbolically as:
R = {(x, y): y = 2X}.
Relations Between Members in a Set
Find relations between members in a set
Which of the following ordered pairs belong to the relation {(x, y): y>x}?
(1, 2), (2, 1), (-3, 4), (-3, -5), (2, 2), (-8, 0), (-8, -3).
(1, 2), (-3, 4), (-8, 0), (8,-3).
Relations Pictorially
Demonstrate relations pictorially
example the relation ” is greater than ” involving numbers 1,2,3,4,5
and 6 where 1,3 and 5 belong to set A and 2,4 and 6 belong to set B can
be indicate as follows:-
3 1441272458358
This kind of relation representation is referred to as pictorial representation.
can also be defined in terms of ordered pairs (a,b) for which a is
related to b and a is an element of set A while b is an element of set
4 1441273481330
example the relation ” is a factor of ” for numbers 2,3,5,6,7 and 10
where 2,3,5 and 6 belong to set A and 6,7 and 10 belong to set B can be
illustrated as follows:-
5 1441273616450
6 1441273782881
Example 1
[if !supportLists]–>1. Draw an arrow diagram to illustrate the
relation which connects each element of set A with its square.
7 1441274058229
8 1441274202039
Example 2
the information given in example 1, write down the relation in set
notation of ordered pairs. List the elements of ordered pairs.

Example 3
As we,
10 1441275814254
11 1441275906720
Example 4
Let X= {2, 3, 4 } and Y= {3 ,4, 5}
Draw an arrow diagram to illustrate the relation ” is less than”
12 1441276089579
Exercise 1
Let P= {Tanzania, China, Burundi, Nigeria}
Draw a pictorial diagram between P and itself to show the relation
“Has a larger population than”
2. Let A = 9,10,14,12 and B = 2,5,7,9 Draw an arrow diagram between A and B to illustrate the relation ” is a multiple of”
3.Let A = mass, Length, time and
B = {Centimeters, Seconds, Hours, Kilograms, Tones}
Use the set notation of ordered pairs to illustrate the relation “Can be measured in”
A group people contain the following; Paul Koko, Alice Juma, Paul
Hassan and Musa Koko. Let F be the set of all first names, and S the set
of all second names.
Draw an arrow diagram to show the connection between F and S
5. Let R={ (x, y): y=x+2}
Where x∈A and A ={ -1,0,1,2}
and y∈B, List all members of set B
Exercise 2
1. Let the relation be defined
13 1441280276312
Consider the following pictorial diagram representing a relation R.
14 1441280502948
Let the relation R be defined as
14 1441280502948
A relation R on sets a and B where A = 1,2,3,4,5 and B = 7,8,9,10,11,12 is defined as ” is a factor of “
