Relation
Relation
Generally, relation refers to the blood connection between the people. For example, brother and sister, father and son etc.
But in mathematics, if A and B are two sets in which A × B is called the cartesian product of A and B, any subset of A × B is called a relation from A to B. The relation from A to B is denoted by R. The relation from A is called a relation on A.
For examples,
Let, A = {3, 5} and B = {4, 6}
Then, A × B = {3, 5} × {4, 6}
= {(3, 4), (3, 6), (5, 4), (5, 6)}
Let, R = {(3, 4), (5, 6)}
So, R is a subset of A × B.
So, R is a relation from A to B.
Representation of a relation
A relation can be represented in 5 ways as:
 By the set of ordered pairs
 By standard description using a rule of formula
 By table
 By graph
 By arrow diagram
By the set of ordered pairs
A relation can be represented in the set of ordered pairs in which there are two components. The first component is called xcomponent and the second component is called ycomponent.
For example,
 R = {(Sulav, Shree), (Siddartha, Bhagwat), (Asmita, Riya)}
R = {(1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3)}
By standard description using a rule or a formula
A relation can be represented by using the formulas and standard description.
For example,
 Let, A = {3, 4, 5} and B = {3, 4, 5}
Then,
A × B = {(3, 3), (3, 4), (3, 5), (4, 3), (4, 4), (4, 5), (5, 3), (5, 4), (5, 5)}
Here, R is a subset of A × B. So, R is a relation from A to B. The relation R can be shown as, R = {(x, y) : x=y}  Let, A = (5, 6) and B = (7, 8)
Then,
A × B = (5, 6) × (7, 8)
= {(5, 7), (5, 8), (6, 7), (6, 8)}
Let, R = {(5, 7), (5, 8), (6, 8)}
Here,R is a subset of A × B. So R is a relation from A to B. The relationship R can be represented as,R = {(x, y) : x<y}
By Table
A relation can also be represented in table which one as follows: 
 Let, A = {2, 4} and B = {4, 6}
Then, A × B = {2, 4} × {4, 6}
= {(2, 4), (2, 6), (4, 2), (4, 6)}
Then, R is a relation from A to B. This relation can be represented as,x 2 4 y 4 6
By Graph
A relation can also be shown in graphs by the use of graph paper. For example,
 Let, A = {4, 5, 6} and {4, 5, 6}
Then, A × B = {4, 5, 6} × {4, 5, 6}
= {(4, 4), (4, 5), (4, 6), (5, 4), (5, 5), (5, 6), (6, 4), (6, 5), (6, 6)}
So, R = {(4, 4), (5, 5), (6, 6)}
Here, R is a relation from A to B which is represented as,
Example for graph
By Arrows Diagram
 Let, A = {2, 4} and B = {4, 6}
Then A × B = {2, 4}×{4, 6}
= {(2, 4), (2, 6), (4, 4), (4, 6)}
Let, R = {(2, 4), (4, 6)}
So, R is a relation from A to B. This relation can be represented as,
Example for arrow diagram
Domain and Range of a Relation
Let R be a relation from A to B. Then, the set of all first elements of the ordered pairs of R are called the domain. For example,
Let, A = (1, 2) and B = (3, 4)
Domain of relation = (1, 3)
Similarly, the set of all the second elements of the ordered pair of R is called the range. For example,
Let, A = (1, 2) and B = (3, 4)
Range of a Relation = (2, 4)
Inverse relation
The interchanging of xcomponent and ycomponents of each pair of the relation of R is denoted by R^{1}.
For example,
Let, A = {1, 2} and B = {3, 4}
Here, A × B = {1, 2} × {3, 4} = {(1, 3) (1, 4) (2, 3) (2, 4)}
Thus, R^{1}= {(3, 1), (4, 1), (3, 2), (4, 2)}
 A relation between two sets is a collection of ordered pairs containing one object from each set.
 Any subset of A × B is called a relation from A to B.
 The relation is denoted by R.
 The inverse relation is denoted by R^{1}.
