Solution

The given function f:A×BB×A is defined by ( a,b )=( b,a ).

Let ( a 1 , a 2 ) and ( a 2 , b 2 )A×B such that,

f( a 1 , b 1 )=f( a 2 , b 2 ) ( b 1 , a 1 )=( b 2 , a 2 ) b 1 = b 2 and a 1 = a 2 ( a 1 , b 1 )=( a 2 , b 2 )

Hence, f is one-one.

Let, ( b,a )B×A be any element.

Then the element ( a,b )A×B exists, such that ( a,b )=( b,a ).

So, f is onto.

Thus, f is both one-one and onto and thus, fis bijective.
