Question 3

Prove that the Greatest Integer Function* f* : R → R, given by f(x) = [x], is neither one-one nor onto, where [x] denotes the greatest integer less than or equal to x.

Answer

*f*: **R** → **R** is given by,

*f*(*x*) = [*x*]

It is seen that *f*(1.2) = [1.2] = 1, *f*(1.9) = [1.9] = 1.

∴ *f*(1.2) = *f*(1.9), but 1.2 ≠ 1.9.

∴ *f* is not one-one.

Now, consider 0.7 ∈ **R**.

It is known that *f*(*x*) = [*x*] is always an integer. Thus, there does not exist any element *x* ∈ **R** such that *f*(*x*) = 0.7.

∴ *f* is not onto.

Hence, the greatest integer function is neither one-one nor onto.
