MACM 101 — Discrete Mathematics I Outline Solutions to Exercises on Functions and Relations 1. Give a definition of a one-to-one function. Let f be a function from A to B . The function f is called one-to-one if and only if for any a,b A f ( a ) = f ( b ) implies a = b . 2. Give a definition of the composition of two functions. Let g be a function from A to B and f be a function from B to C . The composition of functions f and g , denoted by f g is the function from A to C defined by ( f g )( a ) = f ( g ( a )) . 3. Prove that for any sets A , B , and C [15] ( A B ) C = ( A C ) ( B C ) . Draw Venn diagrams of both sides of the equality. Method 1. ( A C ) ( B C ) = { a | a ( A C ) a negationslash∈ ( B C ) } = { a | a A a negationslash∈ C ∧ ¬ ( a ( B C )) } = { a | a A a negationslash∈ C ∧ ¬ ( a B a negationslash∈ C } = { a | a A a negationslash∈ C ( a negationslash∈ B a C ) } = { a | a A (( a negationslash∈ C a negationslash∈ B ) ( a negationslash∈ C a C ) } = { a | a A

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.
