High School Mathematics - 24.4 Many-one, One-One Functions

 Many - One Function: If the function f: A->B is such that 2 or more elements a1, a2.... of A have the same f-image in B, then the mapping is called many-one mapping or many-one function.Note that f:A->B is not one-one then it is many-one. One - One Onto Function If the function f is both one-one and onto then f is called one-one onto function. It is also called a bijection or a bijective function. In other words, a function f: A ->B is bijective if if it is one-one, i.e f(x) = f(y) which implies x = y for all x,y € A it is onto,i.e, for all y € B, there exists x € A such that f(x) = y. Example: If R->R be a function defined by f(x) = 5x3-8, show that the function is a bijective function. Solution: f(x) = 5x3-8 , x € R be any two elements of R (domain) f is one-one (injective) Let x,y €R then f(x) = f(y) which implies 5x3 - 8 = 5y3 - 8 From the above we get x3 = y3 Hence x3 = y3 = 0 (x-y) = 0, because the second factor is not equal to zero. x = y Hence is one-one. f is onto, i.e surjective. Let k be any real number in the codomain. Then f(x) = k = 5x3-8 k => x = {(k+8)/5}1/3 Now, f[(k+8)/5]1/3 Directions: Answer the following.
