Determine whether each of the following functions is 1-to-1 and whether it is onto.
Assume the domain and co-domain is Z, the integers. Explain your answers.
a. f(n) = n / 2, assuming integer division
This function is one-to-one. There are no two or

Enumerate the elements of the following sets:
1. cfw_x: x is an odd positive integer less than 13
cfw_1,3,5,7,9,11
2. cfw_y: y is a positive integer that is a multiple of 4 and greater than 10 but
less than 25
cfw_12,16,20,24

Calculate the number of integers divisible by 4 between 50 and 500, inclusive.
Just divide the numbers by 4 and cut out any remainder. E.g.
50
=12 <- the
4
number of integers between 0 and 50 divisible by 4. There are 12 integer

Enumerate the elements of the following relations from the set A of positive integers
less than or equal to 10 to the set B of positive integers less than or equal to 30.
1. An element a of A is related to the element b of B if b = 3 a
