Question 2

Check the injectivity and surjectivity of the following functions:

(i)* f* : **N → N** given by* f(x*) = x^{2}

(ii)* f* : **Z → Z** given by *f(x)* = x^{2}

(iii)* f* : **R → R** given by* f(x)* = x^{2}

(iv)* f *: **N → N** given by *f(x)* = x^{3}

(v)* f* : **Z → Z** given by *f(x)* = x^{3 }

Answer

(i) *f*: **N** → **N** is given by,

*f*(*x*) = *x*^{2}

It is seen that for *x*, *y* ∈**N**, *f*(*x*) = *f*(*y*) ⇒ *x*2 = *y*2 ⇒ *x* = *y*.

∴*f* is injective.

Now, 2 ∈ **N**. But, there does not exist any *x* in **N** such that *f*(*x*) = *x*^{2} = 2.

∴ *f* is not surjective.

Hence, function *f* is injective but not surjective.

(ii) *f*: **Z** → **Z** is given by,

*f*(*x*) = *x*^{2}

It is seen that *f*(-1) = *f*(1) = 1, but -1 ≠ 1.

∴ *f* is not injective.

Now,-2 ∈ **Z**. But, there does not exist any element *x* ∈**Z** such that *f*(*x*) = *x*^{2} = -2.

∴ *f* is not surjective.

Hence, function *f* is neither injective nor surjective.

(iii) *f*: **R** → **R** is given by,

*f*(*x*) = *x*^{2}

It is seen that *f*(-1) = *f*(1) = 1, but -1 ≠ 1.

∴ *f* is not injective.

Now,-2 ∈ **R**. But, there does not exist any element *x* ∈ **R** such that *f*(*x*) = *x*^{2} = -2.

∴ *f* is not surjective.

Hence, function *f* is neither injective nor surjective.

(iv) *f*: **N** → **N** given by,

*f*(*x*) = *x*^{3}

It is seen that for *x*, *y* ∈**N**, *f*(*x*) = *f*(*y*) ⇒ *x*^{3} = *y*^{3} ⇒ *x* = *y*.

∴*f* is injective.

Now, 2 ∈ **N**. But, there does not exist any element *x* in domain **N** such that *f*(*x*) = *x*^{3 }= 2.

∴ *f* is not surjective

Hence, function *f* is injective but not surjective.

(v) *f*: **Z** → **Z** is given by,

*f*(*x*) = *x*^{3}

It is seen that for *x*, *y* ∈ **Z**, *f*(*x*) = *f*(*y*) ⇒ *x*^{3} = *y*^{3} ⇒ *x* = *y*.

∴ *f* is injective.

Now, 2 ∈ **Z**. But, there does not exist any element *x* in domain **Z** such that *f*(*x*) = *x*^{3} = 2.

∴ *f* is not surjective.

Hence, function *f* is injective but not surjective.
