Transitive

A relation R it is said transitive if aR & bRc then aRc (a is related to b and b is related to c then a is related to c). For example:

The equality is transive, since for all real numbers a, b, & c, if a = b, and b = c, then a = c.

The < relation is transitive, since for all real numbers a, b, & c, if a < b, and b < c, then a < c

Transversal
