1). I would say this is fine and doesn't need changing and that it is surjective. My one query is that it's a many-to-one function (since all the prime numbers would have hcf=1) so does it need to be altered to give a one-to-one function?In each case below, we list a set D, a set T, and a definition of for . Decide first whether the given information defines a bona fide map/function \rightarrow T" alt="f \rightarrow T" />, and, when it doesn't, modify the target T or the domain D to ensure that it does. Then decide whether the (possibly modifed map) is surjective, injective or bijective.
1). D= X , T= , f(m,n)=hcf(m,n)
2).D= =T, . You will need to consider different cases separately.
3). D is the open interval (0,1); each element of D has a unique representation as a decimal that does not end with a recurring 9. Let T=(0,1)x(0,1) and define
2). I think this one is fine to (as well as being bijective). I can't see how case analysis is needed either. It's a map from to and it's a line. Are the different cases when a=0 and when a 0?
3). I can see this is a square of unit side length 1. However, due to the open interval and the fact that 0.99999....(which=1) is not in the square, then the sides are not limited. It's an odd thing to describe really, or i'm not making a good job of it.
However, I think this is fine (and bijective) to since none of the numbers will be the same so their decimal expansion will be different. Hence all the points on the square will be different.
My question is whether this reasoning is correct or I have completely misunderstood the question.
