**Class 12 Maths Chapter 1- Relations and Functions** :

**Top Concepts in Relations**

**Introduction to Relation and no. of relations**

- A relation R between two non-empty sets A and B is a subset of their Cartesian product A × B.
- If A = B, then the relation R on A is a subset of A × A.
- The total number of relations from a set consisting of m elements to a set consisting of n elements is 2
^{mn}. - If (a, b) belongs to R, then a is related to b and is written as ‘a R b’. If (a, b) does not belong to R, then a is not related to b and it is written as

**Co-domain and Range of a Relation**

Let R be a relation from A to B. Then the ‘domain of

**Types of Relations**

A relation R in a set A is called an empty relation if no element of A is related to any element of A, i.e.,

A relation R in a set A is called a universal relation if each element of A is related to every element of A, i.e., R = A × A.

**A relation R on a set A is called:**

- Reflexive, if (a, a) R for every a A.
- Symmetric, if (a
_{1}, a_{2}) R implies that (a_{2}, a_{1}) R for all a_{1}, a_{2}**∈**A. - Transitive, if (a
_{1}, a_{2}) R and (a_{2}, a_{3}) R implies that (a1, a3) R for all a_{1}, a_{2}, a_{3}A._{ ∈} **Equivalence Relation**

- A relation R in a set A is said to be an equivalence relation if R is reflexive, symmetric and transitive.
- An empty relation R on a non-empty set X (i.e., ‘a R b’ is never true) is not an equivalence relation, because although it is vacuously symmetric and transitive, but it is not reflexive (except when X is also empty).

- Given an arbitrary equivalence relation R in a set X, R divides X into mutually disjoint subsets S
_{i}called partitions or subdivisions of X provided:

- All elements of S, are related to each other for all i.
- No element of Si is related to any element of St if i j.

The subsets St are called equivalence classes.

**Union, Intersection and Inverse of Equivalence Relations**

- If R and S are two equivalence relations on a set A, R S is also an equivalence relation on A.
- The union of two equivalence relations on a set is not necessarily an equivalence relation on the set.
- The inverse of an equivalence relation is an equivalence relation.

**Top Concepts in Functions**

**Introduction to functions**

A function from a non-empty set A to another non-empty set B is a correspondence or a rule which associates every element of A to a unique element of B written as f : A → B such that f(x) = y for all x A, y B.

All functions are relations, but the converse is not true.

**Domain, Co-domain and Range of a Function**

- If f : A → B is a function, then set A is the domain, set B is the co-domain and set {f(x) : x A) is the range of f.
- The range is a subset of the co-domain.
- A function can also be regarded as a machine which gives a unique output in set B corresponding to each input from set A.
- If A and B are two sets having m and n elements, respectively, then the total number of functions from A to B is n
^{m}.

**Real Function**

- A function f : A → B is called a real-valued function if B is a subset of R.
- If A and B both are subsets of R, then ‘f’ is called a real function.
- While describing real functions using mathematical formula, x (the input) is the independent variable and y (the output) is the dependent variable.
- The graph of a real function ‘f’ consists of points whose co-ordinates (x, y) satisfy y = f(x), for all x Domain(f).

**Vertical line test**

A curve in a plane represents the graph of a real function if and only if no vertical line intersects it more than once.

**One**–**one Function**

- A function f : A → B is one-to-one if for all x, y A, f(x) = f(y) ⇒ x = y or x ≠ y ⇒ f(x) ≠ f(y).
- A one-one function is known as an injection or injective function. Otherwise, f is called many-one.

**Onto Function**

- A function f : A → B is an onto function, if for each b B, there is at least one a A such that f(a) = b, i.e., if every element in B is the image of some element in A, then f is an onto or surjective function.
- For an onto function, range = co-domain.
- A function which is both one-one and onto is called a bijective function or a bijection.
- A one-one function defined from a finite set to itself is always onto, but if the set is infinite, then it is not the case.

**Let A and B be two finite sets and f : A**→**B be a function.**

- If f is an injection, then n (A) n (B) .
- If f is a surjection, then n(A) n(B).
- If f is a bijection, then n(A) = n(B) .

- If A and B are two non-empty finite sets containing m and n elements, respectively, then Number of functions from A to B = n
^{m}.

- Number of one-one function from A to B

- Number of onto functions from A to B

- Number of one-one and onto functions from A to B

- If a function f : A → B is not an onto function, then f : A → f(A) is always an onto function.
**Composition of Functions**

Let f : A → B and g : B → C be two functions. The composition of f and g, denoted by g o f, is defined as the function g o f: A → C and is given by g o f(x): A → C defined by g o f(x) = g(f(x)) ∀ x∈ A.

- Composition of f and g is written as g o f and not f o g.
- g o f is defined if the range of f domain of g, and f o g is defined if the range of gdomain of f.
- Composition of functions is not commutative in general i.e., f o g(x) ≠ g o f(x).
- Composition is associative i.e., if f : X → Y, g : Y → Z and h : Z → S are functions, then h o (g o f) = (h o g) o f.
- The composition of two bijections is a bijection.

**Inverse of a Function**

- Let f : A → B is a bijection, then g : B → A is inverse of f if f(x) = y ⟺ g(y) = x OR g o f = l
_{A}and f o g = l_{B} - If g o f = l
_{A}and f is an injection, then g is a surjection. - If f o g’ l
_{B}and f is a surjection, then g is an injection.

- Let f : A → B and g: B → C be two functions. Then

- g o f: A → C is onto ⇒ g: B → C is onto.
- g o f: A → C is one-one ⇒ f:A → B is one-one.
- g o f: A → C is onto and g: B → C is one-one ⇒ f:A → B is onto.
- g o f: A → C is one-one and f:A → B is onto ⇒ g: B → C is one-one.

**Invertible Function**

- A function f : X → Y is defined to be invertible if there exists a function g : Y → X such that gof – l
_{x}and fog = I_{y}. - The function g is called the inverse of f and is denoted by f
^{-1}. If f is invertible, then f must be one-one and onto, and conversely, if f is one-one and onto, then f must be invertible. - If f : A → B and g : B → C are one-one and onto, then g o f : A → C is also one-one and onto. But if g o f is one-one, then only f is one-one and g may or may not be one-one. If g o f is onto, then g is onto and f may or may not be onto.
- Let f : X → Y and g : Y → Z be two invertible functions. Then g o f is also invertible with (g o f)
^{-1}= f^{-1}o g^{-1}. - If f: R → R is invertible, f(x) = y, then f
^{-1}(y) = x and (f^{-1})^{-1}is the function f itself.

**Binary Operations**

- A binary operation * on a set A is a function from A × A to A.
- If * is a binary operation on a set S, then S is closed with respect to *.
**Binary operations on R**

- Addition, subtraction and multiplication are binary operations on R, which is the set of real numbers.
- Division is not binary on R; however, division is a binary operation on R – {0} which is the set of non-zero real numbers.

**Laws of Binary Operations**

- A binary operation * on the set X is called commutative, if a * b = b * a, for every a, b X.
- A binary operation * on the set X is called associative, if a (b*c) = (a*b)*c, for every a, b, c X.
- An element e A is called an identity of A with respect to * if for each a A, a * e = a = e * a.
- The identity element of (A, *) if it exists, is unique.

**Existence of Inverse**

Given a binary operation * from A × A → A with the identity element e in A, an element a e A is said to be invertible with respect to the operation *, if there exists an element b in A such that a * b = e = b * a and b is called the inverse of a and is denoted by a^{-1}.

- If the operation table is symmetric about the diagonal line, then the operation is commutative.

The operation * is commutative.

**Binary Operation on Natural Numbers**

Addition ’+’ and multiplication ‘-‘ on N, the set of natural numbers, are binary operations. However, subtraction ‘—’ and division are not, because (4, 5) = 4 – 5 = -1 N and 4/5 = .8 N.

**Number of Binary Operations**

- Let S be a finite set consisting of n elements. Then S x S has n
^{2}elements. - The total number of functions from a finite set A to a finite set B is [n(B)]
^{n(A)}. Therefore, total number of binary operations on S is n^{n}^{2}. - The total number of commutative binary operations on a set consisting of n elements is n n(n-1)2.

**Very Short Questions:**

- If R = {(x, y) : x + 2y = 8} is a relation in N, write the range of R.
- Show that a one-one function:

f {1, 2, 3} → {1, 2, 3} must be onto. (N.C.E.R.T.)

- What is the range of the function f(x) = |x – 1|x – 1 ? (C.B.S.E. 2010)
- Show that the function f : N → N given by f(x) = 2x is one-one but not onto. (N.C.E.R.T.)
- If f : R → R is defined by f(x) = 3x + 2 find f(f(x)). C.B.S.E. 2011 (F))
- If f(x) = xx – 1, x ≠1 then find fof. (N.C.E.R.T)
- If f: R → R is defined by f(x) = (3 – x
^{3})^{1/3}, find fof (x) - Are f and q both necessarily onto, if gof is onto? (N.C.E.R.T.)

**Very Short Answer:**

- Solution: Range of R = {1, 2, 3}.

[∵ When x = 2, then y = 3, when x = 4, then y = 2, when x = 6, then y = 1]

- Solution: Since ‘f’ is one-one,

∴ under ‘f’, all the three elements of {1, 2, 3} should correspond to three different elements of the co-domain {1, 2, 3}.

Hence, ‘f’ is onto.

- Solution: When x > 1,

than f(x) = x – 1x – 1 = 1.

When x < 1,

than f(x) = -(x – 1)x – 1 = -1

Hence, Rf = {-1, 1}.

- Solution:

Let x_{1}, x_{2} ∈ N.

Now, f(x_{1}) = f(x_{2})

⇒ 2x_{1} = 2x_{2}

⇒ x_{1} = x_{2}

⇒ f is one-one.

Now, f is not onto.

∵ For 1 ∈ N, there does not exist any x ∈ N such that f(x) = 2x = 1.

Hence, f is ono-one but not onto.

- Solution:

f(f(x)) = 3 f(x) + 2

= 3(3x + 2) + 2 = 9x + 8.

- Solution:

- Solution:

f_{o}f(x) = f(f(x)) = (3-(f(x))^{3})^{1/3}

= (3 – ((3 – x^{3})^{1/3})^{3})^{1/3}

= (3 – (3 – x^{3}))^{1/3} = (x^{3})^{1/3} = x.

- Solution:

Consider f: {1, 2, 3, 4} → {1, 2, 3, 4}

and g: {1, 2, 3,4} → {1,2.3} defined by:

f(1) = 1, f(2) = 2, f(3) = f(4) = 3

g (1) = 1, g (2) = 2, g (3) = g (4) = 3.

∴ gof = g (f(x)) {1, 2,3}, which is onto

But f is not onto.

[∵ 4 is not the image of any element]

**Short Questions:**

- Let A be the set of all students of a Boys’ school. Show that the relation R in A given by:

R = {(a, b): a is sister of b} is an empty relation and the relation R’ given by :

R’ = {(a, b) : the difference between heights of a and b is less than 3 metres} is an universal relation. (N.C.E.R.T.)

- Solution:

(i) Here R = {(a, b): a is sister of b}.

Since the school is a Boys’ school,

∴ no student of the school can be the sister of any student of the school.

Thus R = Φ Hence, R is an empty relation.

(ii) Here R’ = {(a,b): the difference between heights of a and b is less than 3 metres}.

Since the difference between heights of any two students of the school is to be less than 3 metres,

∴ R’ = A x A. Hence, R’ is a universal relation.

- Let f : X → Y be a function. Define a relation R in X given by :

R = {(a,b):f(a) = f(b)}.

Examine, if R is an equivalence relation. (N.C.E.R.T.)

- Solution:

For each a ∈ X, (a, a) ∈ R.

Thus R is reflexive. [∵ f (a) = f(a)]

Now (a, b) ∈ R

⇒ f(a) = f(b)

⇒ f(b) = f (a)

⇒ (b, a) ∈ R.

Thus R is symmetric.

And (a, b) ∈ R

and (b, c) ∈ R

⇒ f(a) = f(b)

and f(b) = f(c)

⇒ f(a)= f(c)

⇒ (a, c) ∈ R.

Thus R is transitive.

Hence, R is an equivalence relation.

- Let R be the relation in the set Z of integers given by:

R = {(a, b): 2 divides a – b}.

Show that the relation R is transitive. Write the equivalence class [0]. (C.B.S.E. Sample Paper 2019-20)

- Solution:

Let 2 divide (a – b) and 2 divide (b – c), where a,b,c ∈ Z

⇒ 2 divides [(a – b) + (b – c)]

⇒ 2 divides (a – c).

Hence, R is transitive.

And [0] = {0, ± 2, ± 4, ± 6,…].

- Show that the function:

f : N → N

given by f(1) = f(2) = 1 and f(x) = x -1, for every x > 2 is onto but not one-one. (N.C.E.R.T.)

- Solution:

Since f(1) = f(2) = 1,

∴ f(1) = f(2), where 1 ≠ 2.

∴ ‘f’ is not one-one.

Let y ∈ N, y ≠ 1,

we can choose x as y + 1 such that f(x) = x – 1

= y + 1 – 1 = y.

Also 1 ∈ N, f(1) = 1.

Thus ‘f ’ is onto.

Hence, ‘f ’ is onto but not one-one.

- Find gof and fog, if:

f : R → R and g : R → R are given by f (x) = cos x and g (x) = 3x^{2}. Show that gof ≠ fog. (N. C.E.R. T.)

- Solution:

We have:

f(x) = cos x and g(x) = 3x^{2}.

∴ gof (x) = g (f(x)) = g (cos x)

= 3 (cos x)^{2} = 3 cos^{2} x

and fog (x) = f(g (x)) = f(3x^{2}) = cos 3x^{2}.

Hence, gof ≠ fog.

- If f(x) = 4x + 36x – 4, x ≠ 23 find fof(x)

- Solution:

We have: 4x + 36x – 4 …(1)

∴ fof(x) – f (f (x))

- Let A = N x N be the set of ail ordered pairs of natural numbers and R be the relation on the set A defined by (a, b) R (c, d) iff ad = bc. Show that R is an equivalence relation.

- Solution:

Given: (a, b) R (c, d) if and only if ad = bc.

(I) (a, b) R (a, b) iff ab – ba, which is true.

[∵ ab = ba ∀ a, b ∈ N]

Thus, R is reflexive.

(II) (a, b) R (c,d) ⇒ ad = bc

(c, d) R (a, b) ⇒ cb = da.

But cb = be and da = ad in N.

∴ (a, b) R (c, d) ⇒ (c, d) R (a, b).

Thus, R is symmetric.

(III) (a,b) R (c, d)

⇒ ad = bc …(1)

(c, d) R (e,f)

⇒ cf = de … (2)

Multiplying (1) and (2), (ad). (cf) – (be), (de)

⇒ af = be

⇒ (a,b) = R(e,f).

Thus, R is transitive.

Thus, R is reflexive, symmetric and transitive.

Hence, R is an equivalence relation.

- Let f: R → R be the Signum function defined as:

and g : R → R be the Greatest Integer Function given by g (x) = [x], where [x] is greatest integer less than or equal to x. Then does fog and gof coincide in (0,1]?

- Solution:

For x ∈ (0,1].

And (gof) (x) = g(f(x)) = g(1)

[∵ f(x) = 1 ∀ x > 0]

= [1] = 1

⇒ (gof) (x) = 1 ∀ x ∈ (0, 1] …(2)

From (1) and (2), (fog) and (gof) do not coincide in (0, 1].

**Long Questions** / **Answer:**

- Show that the relation R on R defined as R = {(a, b):a ≤ b}, is reflexive and transitive but not symmetric.

- Solution:

We have: R = {(a, b)} = a ≤ b}.

Since, a ≤ a ∀ a ∈ R,

∴ (a, a) ∈ R,

Thus, R reflexive.

Now, (a, b) ∈ R and (b, c) ∈ R

⇒ a ≤ b and b ≤ c

⇒ a ≤ c

⇒ (a, c) ∈ R.

Thus, R is transitive.

But R is not symmetric

[∵ (3, 5) ∈ R but (5, 3) ∉ R as 3 ≤ 5 but 5 > 3]

Solution:

Let x_{1}, x_{2} ∈ N.

Now, f(x_{1}) = f(x_{2})

Thus, f is one-one.

Let y ∈ N, then for any x,

f(x) = y if y = x^{2} + x + 1

- Prove that function f : N → N, defined by f(x) = x
^{2}+ x + 1 is one-one but not onto. Find inverse of f : N → S, where S is range of f.

- Solution:

We have:

R = {(a, b): a, b ∈ A; |a – b| is divisible by 4}.

(1) Reflexive: For any a ∈ A,

∴ (a, b) ∈ R.

|a – a| = 0, which is divisible by 4.

Thus, R is reflexive.

Symmetric:

Let (a, b) ∈ R

⇒ |a – b| is divisible by 4

⇒ |b – a| is divisible by 4

Thus, R is symmetric.

Transitive: Let (a, b) ∈ R and (b, c) ∈ R

⇒ |a – b| is divisible by 4 and |b – c| is divisible by 4

⇒ |a – b| = 4λ

⇒ a – b = ±4λ ………….(1)

and |b – c| = 4µ

⇒ b – c = ± 4µ ………….(2)

Adding (1) and (2),

(a-b) + (b-c) = ±4(λ + µ)

⇒ a – c = ± 4 (λ + µ)

⇒ (a, c) ∈ R.

Thus, R is transitive.

Now, R is reflexive, symmetric and transitive.

Hence, R is an equivalence relation.

(ii) Let ‘x’ be an element of A such that (x, 1) ∈ R

⇒ |x – 1| is divisible by 4

⇒ x – 1 = 0,4, 8, 12,…

⇒ x = 1, 5, 9, 13, …

Hence, the set of all elements of A which are related to 1 is {1, 5, 9}.

(iii) Let (x, 2) ∈ R.

Thus |x – 2| = 4k, where k ≤ 3.

∴ x = 2, 6, 10.

Hence, equivalence class [2] = {2, 6, 10}.

- Let A = (x ∈Z : 0 ≤ x ≤ 12}.

Show that R = {(a, b) : a, b ∈ A; |a – b| is divisible by 4} is an equivalence relation. Find the set of all elements related to 1. Also write the equivalence class [2]. (C.B.S.E 2018)

- Solution:

Let y∈ R.

For any x, f(x) = y if y = 9x^{2} + 6x – 5

⇒ y = (9x^{2} + 6x + 1) – 6

= (3x + 1)^{2} – 6

- Prove that the function f: [0, ∞) → R given by f(x) = 9x
^{2}+ 6x – 5 is not invertible. Modify the co-domain of the function f to make it invertible, and hence find f-1. (C.B.S.E. Sample Paper 2018-19

- Reflexive i.e., (a, a) ∈ R ∀ a ∈ A.
- Symmetric i.e., (a, b) ∈ R ⇒ (b, a) ∈ R ∀ a, b ∈ A.
- Transitive i.e., (a, b) ∈ R and (b, c) ∈ R ⇒ (a, c) ∈ R ∀ a, b, c ∈ A.

Based on the above information, answer the following questions.

- If the relation R = {(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (2, 2), (2, 3), (3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3)} defined on the set A = {1, 2, 3}, then R is:

- Reflexive
- Symmetric
- Transitive
- Equivalence
- If the relation R = {(1, 2), (2, 1), (1, 3), (3, 1)} defined on the set A = {1, 2, 3}, then R is:

- Reflexive
- Symmetric
- Transitive
- Equivalence
- If the relation R on the set N of all natural numbers defined as R = {(x, y): y = x + 5 and x < 4}, then R is:

- Reflexive
- Symmetric
- Transitive
- Equivalence
- If the relation R on the set A = {1, 2, 3, ………, 13, 14} defined as R = {(x, y): 3x – y = O}, then R is:

- Reflexive
- Symmetric
- Transitive
- Equivalence
- If the relation R on the set A = {I, 2, 3} defined as R = {(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3)}, then R is:

- Reflexive only
- Symmetric only
- Transitive only
- Equivalence

**Case Study Answers-**

**1. Answer :**

- (a) R – {2}

**Solution:**

For f(x) to be defined x – 2; ≠ 0 i.e., x; ≠ 2.

∴ Domain of f = R – {2}

- (b) R – {2}

**Solution:**

Let y = f(x), then

⇒ xy – 2y = x – 1 ⇒ xy – x = 2y –

Since, x ∈∈ R – {2}, therefore y ≠ 1

Hence, range of f = R – {1}

**Solution:**

We have, g(x) = 2f(x) – 1

- (a) One-one

**Solution:**

⇒ x_{1}x_{2} – 2x_{1} = x_{1}x_{2} – 2x_{2} ⇒ 2x_{1} = 2x_{2} ⇒ x_{1} = x_{2}

Thus, g(x_{1}) = g(x_{2}) ⇒ x_{1 }= x_{2}

Hence, g(x) is one-one.

- (c) f(x
_{1}) = f(x_{2}) ⇒ x_{1}= x_{2}

**2. Answer :**

- (a) Reflexive

**Solution:**

Clearly, (1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3), ∈ R. So, R is reflexive on A.

Since, (1, 2) ∈ R but (2, 1) ∉ R. So, R is not symmetric on A.

Since, (2, 3), ∈ R and (3, 1) ∈ R but (2, 1) ∉ R. So, R is not transitive on A.

- (b) Symmetric

**Solution:**

Since, (1, 1), (2, 2) and (3, 3) are not in R. So, R is not reflexive on A.

Now, (1, 2) ∈ R ⇒ (2, 1) ∈ R and (1, 3) ∈ R ⇒ (3, 1) ∈ R. So, R is symmetric,

Clearly, (1, 2) ∈ R and (2, 1) ∈ R but (1, 1) ∉ R. So, R is not transitive on A.

- (c) Transitive

**Solution:**

We have, R = {(x, y): y = x + 5 and x < 4}, where x, y ∈ N.

∴ R = {(1, 6), (2, 7), (3, 8)}

Clearly, (1, 1), (2, 2) etc. are not in R. So, R is not reflexive.

Since, (1, 6) ∈ R but (6, 1) ∉ R. So, R is not symmetric.

Since, (1, 6) ∈ R and there is no order pair in R which has 6 as the first element.

Same is the case for (2, 7) and (3, 8). So, R is transitive.

- (d) Equivalence

**Solution:**

We have, R = {(x, y): 3x – y = 0}, where x, y ∈ A = {1,2, ……, 14}.

∴ R = {(1, 3), (2, 6), (3, 9), (4, 12)}

Clearly, (1, 1) ∉ R. So, R is not reflexive on A.

Since, (1, 3) ∈ R but (3, 1) ∉ R. So, R is not symmetric on A.

Since, (1, 3) ∈ Rand (3, 9) ∈ R but (1, 9) ∉ R. So, R is not transitive on A.

- (d) Equi0076alence

**Solution:**

Clearly, (1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3) ∈ R. So, R is reflexive on A.

We find that the ordered pairs obtained by interchanging the components of ordered pairs in R are also in R. So, R is symmetric on A. For 1, 2, 3 ∈ A such that (1, 2) and (2, 3) are in R implies that (1, 3) is also, in R. So, R is transitive on A. Thus, R is an equivalence relation.
