Question 2.

Let f :A → B be a function defined by f(x) = \(\frac { x }{ 2 } \) – 1, Where A = {2,4,6,10,12},

B = {0,1, 2, 4, 5, 9}. Represent/by

(i) set of ordered pairs;

(ii) a table;

(iii) an arrow diagram;

Solution:

f: A → B

A = {2,4, 6, 10, 12}, B = {0,1, 2, 4,5,9}

(i) Set of ordered pairs

= {(2, 0), (4, 1), (6, 2), (10, 4), (12, 5)}

(ii) a table

(iii) an arrow diagram;

(iv) a graph

(i) an arrow diagram

(ii) a table form

(iii) a graph

Solution:

f = {(1,2), (2, 2), (3, 2), (4, 3), (5, 4)}

(i) An arrow diagram.

Question 4.

Show that the function f : N → N defined by f{x) = 2x – 1 is one – one but not onto.

Solution:

f: N → N

f(x) = 2x – 1

N = {1,2, 3, 4, 5,…}

f(1) = 2(1) – 1 = 1

f(2) = 2(2) – 1 = 3

f(3) = 2(3) – 1 = 5

f(4) = 2(4) – 1 = 7

f(5) = 2(5) – 1 = 9

Hence f : N → N is a one-one function.

A function f: N → N is said to be onto function if the range of f is equal to the co-domain of f

Range = {1,3, 5, 7, 9,…}

Co-domain = {1, 2,3,..}

But here the range is not equal to co-domain. Therefore it is one-one but not onto function.

Question 5.

Show that the function f: N → N defined by f (m) = m^{2} + m + 3 is one – one function.

Solution:

f: N → N

f(m) = m^{2} + m + 3

N = {1,2, 3,4, 5…..}m ∈ N

f{m) = m^{2} + m + 3

f(1) = 1^{2} + 1 + 3 = 5

f(2) = 2^{2} + 2 + 3 = 9

f(3) = 3^{2} + 3 + 3 = 15

f(4) = 4^{2} + 4 + 3 = 23

In the figure, for different elements in the (X) domain, there are different images in f(x). Hence f: N → N is a one to one but not onto function as the range of f is not equal to co-domain.

Hence it is proved.

Question 6.

Let A = {1, 2,3,4) and B = N. Letf: A → B be

defined by f(x) = x^{3} then,

(i) find the range off

(ii) identify the tpe of function

Solution:

A = {1,2,3,4}

B = N

f: A → B,f(x) = x^{3}

(i) f(1) = 1^{3} = 1

f(2) = 2^{3} = 8

f(3) = 3^{3} = 27

f(4) = 4^{3} = 64

(ii) Therange of f = {1,8,27,64 )

(iii) It is one-one and into function.

Question 7.

In each of the following cases state whether the function is bijective or not. Justify your answer.

(i) f: R → R defined by f(x) = 2x + 1

(ii) f: R → R defined by f(x) = 3 – 4x^{2}

Solution:

(i) f : R → R

f(x) = 2x + 1

f(1) = 2(1) + 1 = 3

f(2) = 2(2) + 1 = 5

f(-1) = 2(-1) + 1 = -1

f(0) = 2(0) + 1 = 1

It is a bijective function. Distinct elements of A have distinct images in B and every element in B has a pre-image in A.

(ii) f: R → R; f(x) = 3 – 4x^{2}

f(1) = 3 – 4(1^{2}) = 3 – 4 = -1

f(2) = 3 – 4(2^{2}) = 3 – 16 = -13

f(-1) = 3 – 4(-1)^{2} = 3 – 4 = -1

It is not bijective function since it is not one-one

Question 8.

Let A = {-1, 1} and B = {0, 2}. If the function f: A → B defined by f(x) = ax + b is an onto function? Find a and b.

Solution:

A= {-1, 1},B = {0,2}

f: A → B, f(x) = ax + b

f(-1) = a(-1) + b = -a + b

f(1) = a(1) + b = a + b

Since f(x) is onto, f(-1) = 0

⇒ -a + b = 0 …(1)

& f(1) = 2

⇒ a + b = 2 …(2)

-a + b = 0

Question 9.

If the function f is defined by

(i) f(3)

(ii) f(0)

(iii) f(-1.5)

(iv) f(2) + f(-2)

Solution:

(i) f(3) ⇒ f(x) = x + 2 ⇒ 3 + 2 = 5

(ii) f(0) ⇒ 2

(iii) f (- 1.5) = x – 1

= -1.5 – 1 = -2.5

Question 10.

A function f: [-5,9] → R is defined as follows:

Solution:

f : [-5, 9] → R

(i) f(-3) + f(2)

f(-3) = 6x + 1 = 6(-3) + 1 = -17

f(2) = 5×2 – 1 = 5(2^{2}) – 1 = 19

∴ f(-3) + f(2) = -17 + 19 = 2

(ii) f(7) – f(1)

f(7) = 3x – 4 = 3(7) – 4 = 17

f(1) = 6x + 1 = 6(1) + 1 = 7

f(7) – f(1) = 17 – 7 = 10

(iii) 2f(4) + f(8)

f(4) = 5x^{2} – 1 = 5 × 4^{2} – 1 = 79

f(8) = 3x – 4 = 3 × 8 – 4 = 20

∴ 2f(4) + f(8) = 2 × 79 + 20 = 178

Question 11

The distance S an object travels under the influence of gravity in time t seconds is given by S(t) = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \) gt^{2} + at + b where, (g is the 2 acceleration due to gravity), a, b are constants. Check if the function S (t)is one-one.

Solution:

Yes, for every different values of t, there will be different values as images. And there will be different preimages for the different values of the range. Therefore it is one-one function.

Question 12.

The function ‘t’ which maps temperature in Celsius (C) into temperature in Fahrenheit (F) is defined by ty(C)= F where F = \(\frac { 9 }{ 5 } \) C +32 . Find,

(i) t(0)

(ii) t(28)

(iii) t(-10)

(iv) the value of C when t(C) = 212

(v) the temperature when the Celsius value is equal to the Farenheit value.

Solution:
