Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is my question. I need to prove the following an equivalence relation.

Let A = {1,2,3,4,5} X {1.2,3,4,5} and define a relation R on A by (x1,y1)R{ x2,y2) if x1+y1=x2+y2.

I am bit confused how to use the condition x1+y1=x2+y2 to prove for transitive, symmetric and reflexive properties.

Please help.

Thanks
