A = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}

R=(A1 x A1) U (A2 x A2) U (A3 x A3) U (A4 x A4)

Proof that R is only Relation that can Partition A like this:

A = {1,2,3} U {4} U {5,6,7} U {8,9}

Note that "U" means Union on Sets.

Please Help me.

Thank you.

What is the definition of a ''partition''? What are the definitions of A1, A2, A3, and A4? What have you tried so far, in your attempt to show that R is the only such relation? Where are you getting stuck?

Please be complete. Thank you!
