Few problems along with their solutions from this chapter are given follows:
Question:
Are the following set of ordered pairs functions? If so examine whether the mapping is injective or surjective.
(i) { (x, y): x is a person, y is the mother of x }.
(ii) { (a, b) : a is a person, b is an ancestor of a}.
Solution:
(i) The set of ordered pairs given here represents a function.
Here, the images of distinct elements of x under f are not distinct, so it is not injective but it is surjective.
(ii) Since, each element of domain does not have a unique image.
Therefore, the set of ordered pairs given here does not represent function.
Question:
Using the definition, prove that the function f : A → b is invertible if and only if f is both oneone and onto.
Solution:
A function f :X → Y is defined to be invertible, if there exist a function g = Y → X such that gof = I_{x} and fog = I_{y}. The function is called the inverse of f and is denoted by f
We know that only bijective functions are invertible functions. A bijective function is both injective and surjective.
It means function f: X → Y is invertible iff f is a bijective function.
Question:
If the set a contains 5 elements and the set b contains 6 elements, then the number of oneone and onto mappings from a to b is
(a) 720
(b) 120
(c) 0
(d) None of these
Solution: (c)
Since, the number of elements in B is more than A.
Hence, there cannot be any oneone and onto mapping from A to B.
Question:
Every function is invertible.
Solution: False
We know that only bijective functions are invertible.
Question:
A binary operation on a set has always the identity element.
Solution: False
We have '+' is a binary operation on the set N but it has no identity element.
