Functional dependency
Message ID:
I got this problem from a friend and was wondering if anyone could help

The following is a set of functional dependency for a relation R
(A,B,C,D,E,F) with  A->D, BE->CDF,  C->E,  D->B
where A->D implies A determines D or D is functionally dependent on A.

1. Show with explanation that the functional dependency AC->F is implied by
the set.
2. Compute the closure(A,C) for the above set.
3. Is the set A,C a super key for the given relation R.
