Let a, b, c ∈ R with b 6 = ac and let the function f : R → R be given by f ( x ) = 8 < : a if x = c, ax- b x- c if x 6 = c. i) Show that f is one-to-one. ii) Show that f is onto. iii) Find f- 1 ( y ). 2. For sets A , B , and S , with S ⊆ B , and a function f : A → B , we define f- 1 ( S ) = ˘ a ∈ A : f ( a ) ∈ S ¯ . For each of the following find f- 1 ( S ). A B f S i) R R x 7→ x- b x c { y : 0 < y < 1 } ii) R R x 7→ x 3- 7 x + 16 { y : 10 ≤ y ≤ 22 } iii) R R × R t 7→ (cos t, sin t ) { ( x, y ) : x < 0, y > } 3. Let x be a real number. i) Prove that b- x c =-d x e and d- x e =-b x c . ii) Give a proof by cases that ¨ 4 x ˝ = ¨ x ˝ + ¨ x + 1 4 ˝ + ¨ x + 1 2 ˝ + ¨ x + 3 4 ˝ . 4. Let a and b be relatively prime positive integers....
