Question 10

Let A = R – {3} and B = R – {1}. Consider the function *f* : A → B defined by

. Is f one-one and onto? Justify your answer.

Answer

A = **R** - {3}, B = **R** - {1}

*f*: A → B is defined as.

.

∴ *f* is one-one.

Let *y* ∈B = **R** - {1}. Then, *y* ≠ 1.

The function *f* is onto if there exists *x* ∈A such that *f*(*x*) = *y.*

Now,

Thus, for any *y* ∈ B, there existssuch that

Hence, function *f* is one-one and onto.
