For example, the lessThan relation is extended to quantities. This means that for all pairs of quantities ?QUANTITY1 and ?QUANTITY2, (lessThan ?QUANTITY1 ?QUANTITY2) if and only if, for some ?NUMBER1, ?NUMBER2, and ?UNIT, ?QUANTITY1 = (MeasureFn ?NUMBER1 ?UNIT), ?QUANTITY2 = (MeasureFn ?NUMBER2 ?UNIT), and (lessThan ?NUMBER1 ?NUMBER2), for all units ?UNIT on which ?QUANTITY1 and ?QUANTITY2 can be measured. Note that, when a RelationExtendedToQuantities is extended from RealNumbers to ConstantQuantities, the ConstantQuantities must be measured along the same physical dimension `(=> (and (instance ?REL RelationExtendedToQuantities) (instance ?REL BinaryRelation) (instance ?NUMBER1 RealNumber) (instance ?NUMBER2 RealNumber) (holds ?REL ?NUMBER1 ?NUMBER2)) (forall (?UNIT) (=> (instance ?UNIT UnitOfMeasure) (holds ?REL (MeasureFn ?NUMBER1 ?UNIT) (MeasureFn ?NUMBER2 ?UNIT)))))` Relation TransitiveRelation trichotomizingOn inverse A BinaryRelation ?REL is transitive if (?REL ?INST1 ?INST2) and (?REL ?INST2 ?INST3) imply (?REL ?INST1 ?INST3), for all ?INST1, ?INST2, and ?INST3 `(=> (instance ?REL TransitiveRelation) (forall (?INST1 ?INST2 ?INST3) (=> (and (holds ?REL ?INST1 ?INST2) (holds ?REL ?INST2 ?INST3)) (holds ?REL ?INST1 ?INST3))))` BinaryRelation greaterThan Quantity Quantity valence subrelation (greaterThan ?NUMBER1 ?NUMBER2) is true just in case the Quantity ?NUMBER1 is greater than the Quantity ?NUMBER2 lessThan `(=> (larger ?OBJ1 ?OBJ2) (forall (?QUANT1 ?QUANT2) (=> (and (measure ?OBJ1 (MeasureFn ?QUANT1 LengthMeasure)) (measure ?OBJ2 (MeasureFn ?QUANT2 LengthMeasure))) (greaterThan ?QUANT1 ?QUANT2))))` TransitiveRelation
