Plus Two Maths Relations and Functions Three Mark Questions and Answers

Question 1.
Show that the relation R in the set is given by A = {x ∈ Z, 0 = x = 12}
R = {(a,b): a – b is a multiple of 4}
Answer:
Given; R = {(a,b): a – b is a multiple of 4}
Clearly a – a = 0 is a multiple of 4. So
(a, a) ∈ R, hence Reflexive
(a,b) ∈ R ⇒ a  -b is a multiple of 4, imply that b – a is a multiple of 4 ⇒ (b, a) ∈ R So Symmetric.
(a, b), (b, c) ∈ R ⇒ a – b and b – c are multiple of 4.
a – b + b – c is a multiple of 4
a – c is a multiple of 4 ⇒ (a, c) ∈ R So Transitive.
Hence R is an equivalence Relation.

Question 2.
Let R be a Relation in the set A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} defines as R = {(x,y): y = 2x – 1}

  1. Write R in roster form and find it’s domain and range
  2. Is R an equivalence relation ? Justify.

Answer:
1. R ={(1, 1), (2, 3), (3, 5)}
Domain = {1, 2, 3} ; Range ={1, 3, 5}

2. Since (2, 2) ∉ R, R is not reflexive
(2, 3) ∈ R but (3, 2) ∉ R
R is not symmetric.
(2, 3) ∈ R, (3, 5) ∉ R but, (2, 5) ∉ R
R is not transitive
∴ R is not an equivalence relation.

Question 4.
Let ‘ * ’ is a binary operation on the set Q of rational numbers as follows;

  1. a * b = a – b
  2. a * b = a + ab
  3. a * b = a2 + b2
  4. a * b = (a – b)2

Find which of the binary operation are commutative and associative. Also find the identity element if exists.
Answer:
1. Given; a * b = a – b
b * a = b – a ≠ a – b = a * b
Hence not commutative.
Now; a * (b * c) = a * (b – c)
= a – (b – c) – a – b + c
(a * b) * c = (a – b) * c = a – b – c
a * (b * c) ≠ (a * b) * c
Hence not associative.
Now; a * e = a ⇒ a – e = a ⇒ e = 0
e * a = a ⇒ e – a = a ⇒ e = 2a
a * e ≠ e * a.
So identity element does not exist.

Plus Two Maths Chapter Wise Questions and Answers Chapter 1 Relations and Functions

2. Given; a * b = a + ab
b * a = b + ab ≠ a + ab = a * b
Hence not commutative.
Now; a * (b * c) = a * (b + bc)
= a + a(b + be) = a + ab + abc
(a * b) * c = (a + ab) * c
= a + ab + c(a + ab)
= a + ab + ac + abc
a * (b * c) * (a * b) * c
Hence not associative.
Now; a * e = a ⇒ a + ae = a ⇒ e = 0
e * a = a ⇒ e + ea = a ⇒ e = \(\frac{a}{1+a}\)
a * e ≠ e * a.
So identity element does not exist.

3. Given; a * b = a2 + b2
b * a = b2 + a2 = a2 + b2 = a * b
Hence commutative.
Now; a * (b * c) = a* (b2 + c2) = a2 + (b2 + c2)2
(a * b) * c = (a2 + b2) * c
= (a2 + b2)2 + c2
a * (b * c) ≠ (a * b) * c
Hence not associative.
Now; a * e – a ⇒ a2 + e2 = a
⇒ e = \(\sqrt{a-a^{2}}\) ∉ Q
So identity element does not exist.

Plus Two Maths Chapter Wise Questions and Answers Chapter 1 Relations and Functions

4. Given; a * b = (a – b)2
b * a = (b – a)2 = (a – b)2 = a * b
Hence commutative.
Now; a * (b * c) = a * (b – c)2 (a – (b-c)2)2
(a * b) * c – (a – b)2 * c = ((a – b)2 – c)2
a * (b * c) ≠ (a * b) * c
Hence not associative.
Now; a * e = \(\sqrt{a}\) ⇒ e = a – \(\sqrt{a}\) ∉ Q
So identity element does not exist.

Question 5.
Show that the relation R on the set of natural numbers defined as R: { (x, y): y – x is a multiple of 2} is an equivalance relation
Answer:
Since x – x = 0 is multiple of 2, (x, x)∈ R
Therefore reflexive.
If y – x is a multiple of 2 then x – y is also a multiple of 2. Therefore (x, y) ∈ R ⇒ (y, x) ∈ R. Hence symmetric.
If y – x is a multiple of 2 and z-y is a multiple of 2, then their sum y – x + z – y = z – x is a multiple of 2. Therefore (x, y), (y, z) ∈ R ⇒ (x, z) ∈ R
Hence transitive.
Therefore R is an equivalance relation.

Question 6.
Consider f : [3, ∞) → [1, ∞) given by f(x) = x2 – 6x + 10. Find f-1
Answer:
f(x) = (x – 3)2 + 1
y = (x – 3)2 + 1
⇒ (x – 3)2 = y – 1
⇒ x = \(\sqrt{y-1}\) + 3
∴ f-1(x) = \(\sqrt{x-1}\) + 3

Question 7.
‘*’ be a binary operation on N × N defined as (a, b) * (c, d) – (ac, bd)

  1. Show that * is commutative.
  2. Find the identity element of * if any
  3. Write an element of N × N which has an inverse.

Answer:
1. (a, b) * (c, d) = (ac, bd) = (ca, db)
= (c, d) * (a, b)
Hence * is commutative.

2. (a, b) * (e, e) = (a, b)
⇒ (ae, be) = (a, b)
⇒ ae = a ⇒ e = 1
⇒ be = b ⇒ e = 1
Therefore (1,1) is the identity element.

3. Invertible element is (1,1).

Question 8.
Show that the relation R in the set R of Real numbers defined asR = {(a, b): a ≤ b2} is neither reflexive, nor symmetric nor transitive.
Answer:
a ≤ a2 is not true for all a. So (a, a) ∉ R hence not Reflexive.
(a, b) ∈ R ⇒ a ≤ b2 does not imply that b ≤ a2. So (b, a) ∉ R, hence not Symmetric. (a, b),(b, c) ∈ R ⇒ a ≤ b2 and b ≤ c2 does not imply that a ≤ c2. So (a, c) ∉ R, hence not Transitive.

Question 9.

Question 10.
Let A = R – {3} and B = R – {1} consider the function f: A → B defined by f(x) = \(\frac{x-2}{x-3}\) is f one-one and onto? Justify your answer.
Answer:
Given; f: A → B, A = R – {3} and B = R – {1}
f(x1) = f(x2) ⇒ \(\frac{x_{1}-2}{x_{1}-3}=\frac{x_{2}-2}{x_{2}-3}\)
⇒ (x1 – 2)(x2 – 3) = (x2 – 2)(x1 – 3)
⇒ x1x2 – 2x2 – 3x1 + 6 = x2x1 – 2x1 – 3x2 + 6
⇒ -2x2 – 3x1 = – 2x1 – 3x2 ⇒ x1 = x2
Hence one-one
Let y ∈ B ⇒ f(x) = y ⇒ \(\frac{x-2}{x-3}\) = y
⇒ x – 2 = xy – 3y
⇒ x – xy = 2 – 3y
⇒ x(1 – y) = 2 – 3y ⇒ x = \(\frac{2-3 y}{1-y}\) ∈ A=
Hence onto. Therefore bijective.

  1. Check whether R is reflexive, symmetric and transitive.
  2. Is R an equivalence relation

Answer:
1. (-1, -1) ∉ R, R is not reflexive
(-1,1) ∈ R but (1, -1) ∉ R, R is not symmetric
(-1,1) ∈ R, (1, 1) ∈ R and (-1, 1) ∈ R,
R is transitive.

2. R is not reflexive, not symmetric and not transitive. So R is not an equivalence relation.

Question 2.
Let A = {1, 2, 3}. Give an example of a relation on A which is

  1. Symmetric but neither reflexive nor transitive.
  2. Transitive but neither reflexive nor symmetric.

Answer:
1. R = {(1, 2),(2, 1)}
(1, 1) ∉ R ⇒ R is not reflexive
(1, 2) ∈ R ⇒ (2, 1) ∈ R, R is symmetric
(1, 2) ∈ R, (2, 1) ∈ R but (1,1) ∉ R,
R is not transitive

2. R = {(1, 2),(1, 3),(2, 3)}
(1, 1) ∉ R ⇒ R is not reflexive
(1, 2) ∈ R ⇒ but (2,1) ∉ R, R is not symmetric
(1, 2) ∈ R, (2, 3) ∈R ⇒ (1, 3) ∈ R,
R is transitive.

Question 3.
Find fog and gof if

  1. f(x) – |x| and g(x) – |3x + 4|
  2. f(x) = 16x4 and g(x) = x \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Answer:
1. Given; f(x) = |x| and g(x) = |3x + 4|
fog(x) = f(g(x))
= f(|3x + 4|) = ||3x + 4|| = |3x + 4|
gof(x) = g(f(x)) = g(|x|) = |3|x| + 4|

2. fog(x) = f(g(x)) = g(x\(\frac{1}{4}\)) = 16(x\(\frac{1}{4}\))4 = x
gof (x) = g(f(x)) = g(16x4) = (16x4)\(\frac{1}{4}\) = 4x.

e * a = a ⇒ e + a – ea = a
⇒ e(1 – a) = 0 ⇒ e = 0 is the identity element.

3. a * b = 0 ⇒ a + b – ab = 0 ⇒ b = \(\frac{a}{a-1}\)

Question 5.
‘*’ is a binary operation on R defined as a * b = 2ab

  1. Determine whether * is commutative and associative
  2. Find the identity element if exists.
  3. Find the inverse element, if exists

Answer:
1. a * b = 2ab = 2ba = b * a
Therefore commutative
a * (b * c) = a * (2bc) = 4abc
(a * b) * c = (2ab) * c = 4 abc
Therefore is associative.

2. a * e = a ⇒ 2ae = a ⇒ e = \(\frac{1}{2}\)
e * a = a ⇒ 2ea = a ⇒ e = \(\frac{1}{2}\)
Therefore identity element is \(\frac{1}{2}\).

3. a * b = \(\frac{1}{2}\) ⇒ 2ab = \(\frac{1}{2}\) ⇒ b = \(\frac{1}{4a}\), a ≠ 0.

Question 7.
If f :R → R is a function defined by f(x) = 3x – 2

  1. Show that f is one-one.
  2. Find fof(x).
  3. Find the inverse of f if exists.

Answer:
1. f(x1) = f(x2)
⇒ 2x1 – 3 = 2x2 – 3 ⇒ x1 = x2
Therefore one-one.

2. fof(x) = f(f(x)) = f(3x – 2)
f (x) = 3(3x – 2) – 2 = 9x – 6 – 2 = 9x – 8.

3. Let g(x) = \(\frac{x+2}{3}\)
fog(x) = f(g(x))
= f\(\left(\frac{x+2}{3}\right)\) = 3\(\left(\frac{x+2}{3}\right)\) – 2 = x
Similarly we can show that

Let A = N × N and be the binary operation. On A defined by (a, b) * (c, d) = (a+c, b+d). Show that ‘ * ’ is commutative and associative. Find the identity for ‘ * ’ on A if any.
Answer:
Given; A = N × N and
(a, b) * (c, d) = (a + c, b + d)
(c, d) * (a, b) = (c + a, d + b)
= (a + c, b + d) = (a, b) * (c, d))
Hence commutative.
Now; (a, b) * [(c, d) * (e, f)] = (a, b) * [c + e, d+f]
= (a + c + e, b + d + f)
[(a, b) * (c, d)] * (e, f) = [a + c, b + d] * (e, f)
= (a + c + e, b + d + f)
Hence associative.
(a, b) * (e, e) = (a, b) ⇒ (a + e, b + e) = (a, b)
⇒ a + e = a, b + e = b ⇒ e=0, e = 0 ⇒ (0,0) ∉ A

There does not exist any element x ∈ R
such that f(x) = 0.7

  2. Prove that * is neither commutative nor associative. (2)
  3. Find the identity elements in R if exists. (2)

Answer:
1. a * b = a + b + a2b
2 * 6 = 2 + 6 + 22 × 6 = 8 + 24 = 32

2. a * b = a + b + a2b a * b ≠ b * a
b * a = b + a + b2a
