4.4 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
  1. if it is one-one, i.e f(x) = f(y) which implies x = y for all x,y A
  2. 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.
Q 1: f(x) = x+1, A function R->R, is onto or not.
