I just would like to know whether I understood this correctly Given the relation R = {(1, 1), (2, 3), (3, 2)} in A = {1, 2, 3}, i.e. R ? A × A. Is R an Equivalence relation? My attempts at a solution: From the relationship R we can see that there is no reflexivity. And since reflectivity is required to have an equivalence relation, the answer is no? Thanks in advance!
