COT3100 Summer’2001 Assignment #4. (Solutions). Assigned: 06/19, due: 07/03 on lecture. Total 100pts. 1. Which of the following are functions from the domain to the codomain given? Which functions are injective? Which functions are surjective? Find the inverse function for any bijective function. a) (5pts) f : Z N where f is defined by f ( x ) = x 2 +1. f is a function, since it returns a unique value for any x Z, but this function is not injective, because for instance f ( - 1)= f (1)=2. Neither it is surjective, because there is no- x Z such that f ( x ) = 0, 0 N. b) (5pts) g : N Q where g is defined by g ( x ) = 1/ x g is not a function, because there is no unique value assigned to x = 0, 0 N. c) (5pts) h : Z × N Q where h is defined by h ( z , n ) = z /( n +1) h is a function, since for any pair ( z , n ) Z × N, the given formula defines a unique value from Q. It is surjective and it is injective. d) (5pts) f : {1, 2, 3} { p , q , r } where f = {(1, q ), (2, r ), (3, p )} f defines a function, the function is injective and surjective. e) (5pts) g : N N where g is defined by g ( x ) = 2 x g is a function, it is injective, but not surjective Here N is the set of nonnegative integers, N={0, 1, 2, 3, …}, Z - the set of all integers, Z={…-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, …}, Q - the set of rational numbers, Q={ x / y | x , y Z and y 0 } 2 Let A = R - {2}, and let f be the function with domain A defined by the formula: 2 3 ) ( - = x x x f a) (6pts) Show that f is a bijective function from A to B for some set B R.

### 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.
