ANSWERED Which of the following sets are well ordered under the specified operation? Justify why they are/ are not well-ordered
(a) $$R​+​ U \{0\}, <$$
(b) $$[0,1], >$$
(c)The set of integers divisible by $$5, <$$
(d)$$\displaystyle{\left\lbrace{\left\lbrace{0},{1},\ldots,{n}\right\rbrace}{\mid}{n}​∈​{N}\right\rbrace},⊆$$ 2021-05-05

(a)This is not a wellordered set. For example, (0, 1) has no minimal element. Suppose that x is minimal, then we can find some $$\displaystyle{0}{<}{y}{<}=$$, and so $$\displaystyle{y}€{\left({0},{1}\right)}$$ but y

(b)This is similar to (a) — (0,1) has no maximal (<-minimal) element.
(c)This set has no minimal element so it cannot be well-ordered.
(a)This is a. well ordered set. Denote this set by S. Denote by 5; the set
$$S = \{0,1,2,\cdots4\}$$
Let T he somenonempty subset of S. We must prove that 7 has a minimal element.
First of all, $$\displaystyle{T}={\left\lbrace{S}{\mid}{i}∈{T}\right\rbrace}$$,
where $$\displaystyle{T}⊆{N}.{\sin{{c}}}{e}{P}{S}{K}{T}⊆{N}$$, and N is well-ordered, it has a minimal element in. Now we see that
$$\displaystyle{S}{i}{0}∈{T}$$ and $$\displaystyle{T}⊆{S}{i}{0},{T}∈{T}$$
so $$Si0$$ is a minimal element of T.
