Reflexive : aRa is true because a * a^-1 = e belongs to H since H is a subgroup of G 2. Symmetric : assuming a * b^-1 belongs to H, (a * b^-1)^-1 = b * a^-1 belongs to H. Hence if aRb then bRa. 3. Transitive : If a * b^-1 & b * c^-1 belongs to H then (a * b^-1) * (b * c^-1) = a * c^-1 belongs to H. Hence, if aRb and bRc then aRc. Hence, R is an equivalence relation.
