MATH 74 HOMEWORK 5 SOLUTIONS 1. Just so people can see how these go I am including proofs. They were not a required part of the homework. 1(a). Injective but not surjective. Proof. To see that f is not surjective, notice that 2 is not in the range of f . Indeed, 1 2 = 1 is less than 2, and if x 2, then x 2 4 is bigger than 2, so there is no n N for which n 2 = 2. To see that f is injective, fix x, y N and suppose f ( x ) = f ( y ), ie, that x 2 = y 2 . We cannot have x < y because then x 2 = x · x < x · y < y · y = y 2 , and similarly (interchanging x and y in the proof just given) we cannot have x > y . So x = y . There is a general fact at work here. The point is that squaring, on the given domain, is strictly increasing : if x < y , then f ( x ) < f ( y ). Any strictly increasing function is injective. 1(b). Injective but not surjective. Proof. To see that it is injective, consider the function g : R R given by g ( x ) = x 1 / 3 . Then g ( f ( x )) = ( x 3 ) 1 / 3 = x, x R . so f is injective by “Theorem 18” from class. To see that f is not surjective, notice that every number in the range of f , being a cube of a nonnegative number, must be nonnegative. So any negative number (eg - 1) is not in the range of f . 1(c). Injective and surjective. Proof. Without a precise definition of the sine function (or the number π ) we are not really in a position to “prove” this, but it is clear from calculus. On the given

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
