1. The relation f is defined by The relation g is defined by Show that f is a function and g is not a function.

Solution:

The given relation f is defined as: It is seen that, for 0 ≤ x < 3,

f(x) = x2 and for 3 < x ≤ 10,

f(x) = 3x

Also, at x = 3

f(x) = 32 = 9 or f(x) = 3 × 3 = 9

i.e., at x = 3, f(x) = 9 [Single image]

Hence, for 0 ≤ x ≤ 10, the images of f(x) are unique.

Therefore, the given relation is a function.

Now,

In the given relation g is defined as It is seen that, for x = 2

g(x) = 22 = 4 and g(x) = 3 × 2 = 6

Thus, element 2 of the domain of the relation g corresponds to two different images i.e., 4 and 6.

Therefore, this relation is not a function.

2. If f(x) = x2, find Solution:

Given,

f(x) = x2

Hence, 3. Find the domain of the function Solution:

Given function, . It clearly seen that, the function f is defined for all real numbers except at x = 6 and x = 2 as the denominator becomes zero otherwise.

Therefore, the domain of f is R – {2, 6}.

4. Find the domain and the range of the real function f defined by f(x) = √(x – 1).

Solution:

Given real function,

f(x) = √(x – 1)

Clearly, √(x – 1) is defined for (x – 1) ≥ 0.

So, the function f(x) = √(x – 1) is defined for x ≥ 1.

Thus, the domain of f is the set of all real numbers greater than or equal to 1.

Domain of f = [1, ∞).

Now,

As x ≥ 1 ⇒ (x – 1) ≥ 0 ⇒ √(x – 1) ≥ 0

Thus, the range of f is the set of all real numbers greater than or equal to 0.

Range of f = [0, ∞).

5. Find the domain and the range of the real function f defined by f (x) = |x – 1|.

Solution:

Given real function,

f (x) = |x – 1|

Clearly, the function |x – 1| is defined for all real numbers.

Hence,

Domain of f = R

Also, for x ∈ R, |x – 1| assumes all real numbers.

Therefore, the range of f is the set of all non-negative real numbers.

6. Let be a function from R into R. Determine the range of f.

Solution:

Given function, Substituting values and determining the images, we have The range of f is the set of all second elements. It can be observed that all these elements are greater than or equal to 0 but less than 1.

[As the denominator is greater than the numerator.]

Or,

We know that, for x ∈ R,

x2 ≥ 0

Then,

x2 + 1 ≥ x2

1 ≥ x2 / (x2 + 1)

Therefore, the range of f = [0, 1)

7. Let fg: R → R be defined, respectively by f(x) = + 1, g(x) = 2x – 3. Find f + gf – g and f/g.

Solution:

Given, the functions fg: R → R is defined as

f(x) = + 1, g(x) = 2x – 3

Now,

(f + g) (x) = f(x) + g(x) = (x + 1) + (2x – 3) = 3x – 2

Thus, (f + g) (x) = 3x – 2

(f – g) (x) = f(x) – g(x) = (x + 1) – (2x – 3) = x + 1 – 2x + 3 = – x + 4

Thus, (f – g) (x) = –x + 4

f/g(x) = f(x)/g(x), g(x) ≠ 0, x ∈ R

f/g(x) = + 1/ 2x – 3, 2x – 3 ≠ 0

Thus, f/g(x) = + 1/ 2x – 3, x ≠ 3/2

8. Let = {(1, 1), (2, 3), (0, –1), (–1, –3)} be a function from Z to Z defined by f(x) = ax + b, for some integers ab. Determine ab.

Solution:

Given, = {(1, 1), (2, 3), (0, –1), (–1, –3)}

And the function defined as, f(x) = ax + b

For (1, 1) ∈ f

We have, f(1) = 1

So, a × 1 + b = 1

a + b = 1 …. (i)

And for (0, –1) ∈ f

We have f(0) = –1

a × 0 + b = –1

b = –1

On substituting b = –1 in (i), we get

a + (–1) = 1 ⇒ a = 1 + 1 = 2.

Therefore, the values of a and b are 2 and –1 respectively.

9. Let R be a relation from N to N defined by R = {(ab): ab ∈ N and a = b2}. Are the following true?

(i) (aa) ∈ R, for all a ∈ N
(ii) (ab) ∈ R, implies (ba) ∈ R

(iii) (ab) ∈ R, (bc) ∈ R implies (ac) ∈ R.

Solution:

Given relation R = {(ab): ab ∈ N and a = b2}

(i) It can be seen that 2 ∈ N; however, 2 ≠ 22 = 4.

Thus, the statement “(aa) ∈ R, for all a ∈ N” is not true.

(ii) Its clearly seen that (9, 3) ∈ N because 9, 3 ∈ N and 9 = 32.

Now, 3 ≠ 92 = 81; therefore, (3, 9) ∉ N

Thus, the statement “(ab) ∈ R, implies (ba) ∈ R” is not true.

(iii) Its clearly seen that (16, 4) ∈ R, (4, 2) ∈ R because 16, 4, 2 ∈ N and 16 = 42 and 4 = 22.

Now, 16 ≠ 22 = 4; therefore, (16, 2) ∉ N

Thus, the statement “(ab) ∈ R, (bc) ∈ R implies (ac) ∈ R” is not true.

10. Let A = {1, 2, 3, 4}, B = {1, 5, 9, 11, 15, 16} and = {(1, 5), (2, 9), (3, 1), (4, 5), (2, 11)}. Are the following true?

(i) f is a relation from A to B (ii) f is a function from A to B.

Solution:

Given,

A = {1, 2, 3, 4} and B = {1, 5, 9, 11, 15, 16}

So,

A × B = {(1, 1), (1, 5), (1, 9), (1, 11), (1, 15), (1, 16), (2, 1), (2, 5), (2, 9), (2, 11), (2, 15), (2, 16), (3, 1), (3, 5), (3, 9), (3, 11), (3, 15), (3, 16), (4, 1), (4, 5), (4, 9), (4, 11), (4, 15), (4, 16)}

Also given that,

= {(1, 5), (2, 9), (3, 1), (4, 5), (2, 11)}

(i) A relation from a non-empty set A to a non-empty set B is a subset of the Cartesian product A × B.

It’s clearly seen that f is a subset of A × B.

Therefore, f is a relation from A to B.

(ii) As the same first element i.e., 2 corresponds to two different images (9 and 11), relation is not a function.

11. Let f be the subset of Z × Z defined by = {(aba + b): ab ∈ Z}. Is f a function from Z to Z: justify your answer.

Solution:

Given relation f is defined as

= {(aba + b): ab ∈ Z}

We know that a relation f from a set A to a set B is said to be a function if every element of set A has unique images in set B.

As 2, 6, –2, –6 ∈ Z, (2 × 6, 2 + 6), (–2 × –6, –2 + (–6)) ∈ f

i.e., (12, 8), (12, –8) ∈ f

It’s clearly seen that, the same first element, 12 corresponds to two different images (8 and –8).

Therefore, the relation f is not a function.

12. Let A = {9, 10, 11, 12, 13} and let f: A → N be defined by f(n) = the highest prime factor of n. Find the range of f.

Solution:

Given,

A = {9, 10, 11, 12, 13}

Now, f: A → N is defined as

f(n) = The highest prime factor of n

So,

Prime factor of 9 = 3

Prime factors of 10 = 2, 5

Prime factor of 11 = 11

Prime factors of 12 = 2, 3

Prime factor of 13 = 13

Thus, it can be expressed as

f(9) = The highest prime factor of 9 = 3

f(10) = The highest prime factor of 10 = 5

f(11) = The highest prime factor of 11 = 11

f(12) = The highest prime factor of 12 = 3

f(13) = The highest prime factor of 13 = 13

The range of f is the set of all f(n), where n ∈ A.

Therefore,

Range of f = {3, 5, 11, 13}
