I have a problem with Set theory. I am given to prove the following;

Is the intersection of two equivalence relations itself an equivalance relation? If so , how would you characterize the equivalnce sets of the intersection?

Regards,

Nisha.

Of what set is an equivalence relation a subset?

What conditions must this subset satisfy?

Since equivalence relations are (sub)sets, the intersection of 2 equivalence relations is a set. Does this set satisfy the conditions required of an equivalence relation?

Just in case you have no clue where to start - going back to the definitions is very helpful.
