Question 4

Show that the Modulus Function *f* : R → R, given by f(x) = |x|, is neither oneone nor onto, where | x | is x, if x is positive or 0 and |x| is – x, if x is negative.

Answer

f : R → R is given by,

It is seen that.

∴*f*( - 1) = *f*(1), but - 1 ≠ 1.

∴ *f* is not one-one.

Now, consider - 1 ∈ **R**.

It is known that *f*(*x*) = |x| is always non-negative. Thus, there does not exist any element *x* in domain **R** such that *f*(*x*) = |x| = - 1.

∴ *f* is not onto.

Hence, the modulus function is neither one-one nor onto.
