#### Important Terms related to Chapter 1

Before studying this lesson, you should know:

1. Concept of set, types of sets, operations on sets
2. Concept of ordered pair and cartesian product of set.
3. Domain, co-domain and range of a relation and a function
##### Relation

Let A and B be two sets. Then a relation R from Set A into Set B is a subset of A × B.
Types of Relations

• Reflexive Relation
• Symmetric Relation
• Transitive Relation
##### Equivalence Relation

A relation R on a set A is said to be an equivalence relation on A iff

• it is reflexive
• it is symmetric
• it is transitive ###### CLASSIFICATION OF FUNCTIONS

Let f be a function from A to B. If every element of the set B is the image of at least one element of the set A i.e. if there is no unpaired element in the set B then we say that the function f maps the set A onto the set B. Otherwise we say that the function maps the set A into the set B.
Functions for which each element of the set A is mapped to a different element of the set B are said to be one-to-one.

A function can map more than one element of the set A to the same element of the set B. Such a type of function is said to be many-to-one. A function which is both one-to-one and onto is said to be a bijective function.

### Determine whether each of the following relation are reflexive, symmetric and transitive: Relation R in the set A = {1, 2, 3… 13, 14} defined as R = {(x, y): 3x – y = 0}

A = {1, 2, 3 … 13, 14}
R = {(x, y): 3x − y = 0}
∴ R = {(1, 3), (2, 6), (3, 9), (4, 12)}
R is not reflexive since (1, 1), (2, 2) … (14, 14) ∉ R.
Also, R is not symmetric as (1, 3) ∈ R, but (3, 1) ∉ R. [3(3) − 1 ≠ 0]
Also, R is not transitive as (1, 3), (3, 9) ∈ R, but (1, 9) ∉ R. [3(1) − 9 ≠ 0] Hence, R is neither reflexive, nor symmetric, nor transitive.

### Show that the relation R in the set R of real numbers, defined as R = {(a, b): a ≤ b²} is neither reflexive nor symmetric nor transitive.

R = {(a, b): a ≤ b²}
It can be observed that (1/2,1/2)∉R, since, 1/2>(1/2)²
∴ R is not reflexive.
Now, (1, 4) ∈ R as 1 < 42 But, 4 is not less than 12. ∴ (4, 1) ∉ R ∴ R is not symmetric. Now, (3, 2), (2, 1.5) ∈ R [as 3 < 2² = 4 and 2 < (1.5)² = 2.25] But, 3 > (1.5)² = 2.25
∴ (3, 1.5) ∉ R
∴ R is not transitive.
Hence, R is neither reflexive, nor symmetric, nor transitive.

### Check whether the relation R defined in the set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6} as R = {(a, b): b = a + 1} is reflexive, symmetric or transitive.

Let A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}.
A relation R is defined on set A as: R = {(a, b): b = a + 1}
∴ R = {(1, 2), (2, 3), (3, 4), (4, 5), (5, 6)}
We can find (a, a) ∉ R, where a ∈ A.
For instance, (1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3), (4, 4), (5, 5), (6, 6) ∉ R
∴ R is not reflexive.
It can be observed that (1, 2) ∈ R, but (2, 1) ∉ R.
∴ R is not symmetric.
Now, (1, 2), (2, 3) ∈ R but, (1, 3) ∉ R
∴ R is not transitive.
Hence, R is neither reflexive, nor symmetric, nor transitive.

### Show that the relation R in the set {1, 2, 3} given by R = {(1, 2), (2, 1)} is symmetric but neither reflexive nor transitive.

Let A = {1, 2, 3}. A relation R on A is defined as R = {(1, 2), (2, 1)}.
It is clear that (1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3) ∉ R,
∴ R is not reflexive.
Now, as (1, 2) ∈ R and (2, 1) ∈ R, then R is symmetric.
Now, (1, 2) and (2, 1) ∈ R, however, (1, 1) ∉ R,
∴ R is not transitive.
Hence, R is symmetric but neither reflexive nor transitive.

### Show that the relation R in the set A of all the books in a library of a college, given by R = {(x, y): x and y have same number of pages} is an equivalence relation.

Set A is the set of all books in the library of a college.
R = {x, y): x and y have the same number of pages}
Now, R is reflexive since (x, x) ∈ R as x and x has the same number of pages.
Let (x, y) ∈ R
⇒ x and y have the same number of pages.
⇒ y and x have the same number of pages.
⇒ (y, x) ∈ R
∴ R is symmetric.
Now, let (x, y) ∈R and (y, z) ∈ R.
⇒ x and y and have the same number of pages and y and z have the same number of pages.
⇒ x and z have the same number of pages.
⇒ (x, z) ∈ R ∴ R is transitive.
Hence, R is an equivalence relation.

### Show that the relation R in the set A of points in a plane given by R = {(P, Q): Distance of the point P from the origin is same as the distance of the point Q from the origin}, is an equivalence relation. Further, show that the set of all point related to a point P ≠ (0, 0) is the circle passing through P with origin as centre.

R = {(P, Q): Distance of point P from the origin is the same as the distance of point Q from the origin}
Clearly, (P, P) ∈ R since the distance of point P from the origin is always the same as the distance of the same point P from the origin.
∴ R is reflexive.
Now, Let (P, Q) ∈ R.
⇒ The distance of point P from the origin is the same as the distance of point Q from the origin.
⇒ The distance of point Q from the origin is the same as the distance of point P from the origin.
⇒ (Q, P) ∈ R, ∴ R is symmetric.
Now, Let (P, Q), (Q, S) ∈ R.
⇒ The distance of points P and Q from the origin is the same and also, the distance of points Q and S from the origin is the same.
⇒ The distance of points P and S from the origin is the same.
⇒ (P, S) ∈ R ∴ R is transitive.
Therefore, R is an equivalence relation.
The set of all points related to P ≠ (0, 0) will be those points whose distance from the origin is the same as the distance of point P from the origin.
In other words, if O (0, 0) is the origin and OP = k, then the set of all points related to P is at a distance of k from the origin.
Hence, this set of points forms a circle with the centre as the origin and this circle passes through point P.

### Show that the relation R defined in the set A of all polygons as R = {(P1, P2): P1 and P2 have same number of sides}, is an equivalence relation. What is the set of all elements in A related to the right angle triangle T with sides 3, 4 and 5?

R = {(P1, P2): P1 and P2 have same the number of sides}
R is reflexive, Since (P1, P1) ∈ R, as the same polygon has the same number of sides with itself.
Let (P1, P2) ∈ R.
⇒ P1 and P2 have the same number of sides.
⇒ P2 and P1 have the same number of sides.
⇒ (P2, P1) ∈ R,
∴ R is symmetric.
Now, Let (P1, P2), (P2, P3) ∈ R.
⇒ P1 and P2 have the same number of sides.
Also, P2 and P3 have the same number of sides.
⇒ P1 and P3 have the same number of sides.
⇒ (P1, P3) ∈ R ∴ R is transitive.
Hence, R is an equivalence relation.
The elements in A related to the right-angled triangle (T) with sides 3, 4, and 5 are those polygons which have 3 sides (Since T is a polygon with 3 sides).
Hence, the set of all elements in A related to triangle T is the set of all triangles.

### Let L be the set of all lines in XY plane and R be the relation in L defined as R = {(L1, L2): L1 is parallel to L2}. Show that R is an equivalence relation. Find the set of all lines related to the line y = 2x + 4.

R = {(L1, L2): L1 is parallel to L2}
R is reflexive as any line L1 is parallel to itself
i.e., (L1, L1) ∈ R.
Now, let (L1, L2) ∈ R.
⇒ L1 is parallel to L2
⇒ L2 is parallel to L1.
⇒ (L2, L1) ∈ R
∴ R is symmetric.
Now, let (L1, L2), (L2, L3) ∈ R.
⇒ L1 is parallel to L2. Also, L2 is parallel to L3.
⇒ L1 is parallel to L3.
∴ R is transitive.
Hence, R is an equivalence relation.
The set of all lines related to the line y = 2x + 4 is the set of all lines that are parallel to the line y = 2x + 4.
Slope of line y = 2x + 4 is m = 2
It is known that parallel lines have the same slopes.
The line parallel to the given line is of the form y = 2x + c, where c ∈ R. Hence, the set of all lines related to the given line is given by y = 2x + c, where c ∈ R.

### Let f: {1, 3, 4} → {1, 2, 5} and g: {1, 2, 5} → {1, 3} be given by f = {(1, 2), (3, 5), (4, 1)} and g = {(1, 3), (2, 3), (5, 1)}. Write down gof.

The functions f: {1, 3, 4} → {1, 2, 5} and
g: {1, 2, 5} → {1, 3} are defined as
f = {(1, 2), (3, 5), (4, 1)} and
g = {(1, 3), (2, 3), (5, 1)}.
gof(1) = g[f(1)] = g(2) = 3 [as f(1) = 2 and g(2) = 3]
gof(3) = g[f(3)] = g(5) = 1 [as f(3) = 5 and g(5) = 1]
gof(4) = g[f(4)] = g(1) = 3 [as f(4) = 1 and g(1) = 3]
∴ gof = {(1, 3), (3, 1), (4, 3)}

### Show that the function f: R → R given by f(x) = x³ is injective.

f: R → R is given as f(x) = x³.
For one – one Suppose f(x) = f(y), where x, y ∈ R.
⇒ x³ = y³ … (1)
Now, we need to show that x = y.
Suppose x ≠ y, their cubes will also not be equal.
⇒ x³ ≠ y³
However, this will be a contradiction to (1).
∴ x = y Hence, f is injective. ### What is the core motive of chapter 1 Relations and Functions of 12th standard Maths?

The core motive of chapter 1 (Relations and Functions) of 12th standard Maths is to teach students the following things:

1. Empty relation is the relation R in X given by R = φ ⊂ X × X.
2. Universal relation is the relation R in X given by R = X × X.
3. Reflexive relation R in X is a relation with (a, a) ∈ R ∀ a ∈ X.
4. Symmetric relation R in X is a relation satisfying (a, b) ∈ R implies (b, a) ∈ R.
5. Transitive relation R in X is a relation satisfying (a, b) ∈ R and (b, c) ∈ R implies that (a, c) ∈ R.
6. Equivalence relation R in X is a relation which is reflexive, symmetric and transitive.
7. A function f: X → Y is one-one (or injective) if f(x₁) = f(x₂) ⇒x₁ = x₂ ∀ x₁, x₂∈ X.
8. A function f: X → Y is onto (or surjective) if given any y ∈ Y, ∃ x ∈ X such that f(x) = y.
9. A function f: X → Y is one-one and onto (or bijective), if f is both one-one and onto.
10. The composition of functions f: A → B and g: B → C is the function
gof: A → C given by gof(x) = g(f(x)) ∀ x ∈ A.
11. A function f: X → Y is invertible if and only if f is one-one and onto.
12. Given a finite set X, a function f: X → X is one-one (respectively onto) if and only if f is onto (respectively one-one). This is the characteristic property of a finite set. This is not true for infinite set.
13. A binary operation ∗ on a set A is a function ∗ from A × A to A.
14. An element e ∈ X is the identity element for binary operation ∗: X × X → X, if a ∗ e = a = e ∗ a ∀ a ∈ X.
15. An element a ∈ X is invertible for binary operation ∗: X × X → X, if there exists b ∈ X such that a ∗ b = e = b ∗ a where, e is the identity for the binary operation ∗. The element b is called inverse of a and is denoted by a^(–1).
16. An operation ∗ on X is commutative if a ∗ b = b ∗ a ∀ a, b in X.
17. An operation ∗ on X is associative if (a ∗ b) ∗ c = a ∗ (b ∗ c) ∀ a, b, c in X.
