Graph relations & predicates

  1. Jan 8, 2008 #1
    Hi :)

    I have my Discrete maths final in 2 days, and I was doing some practice questions and came across 2 parts that completely baffled me - I moved onto my course a bit late so I missed chunks from classes.

    please please please, can you explain them to me? Ive put the questions in pictures, they're attached :).

    Ive read on the different types of relations, but its like gibberish. Can someone please simplify them? please?

    For the graphs, can you state the definitions of reflexive, transitive, and (anti)symmetric that you are supposed to use?

    For the predicates, what does a large dot mean? What does ":" mean?
