Q. 4

# Show that the fun

It is given that f: R {x R : – 1 < x < 1} defined by , x R

Now, suppose that f(x) = f(y), where x,y ϵ R. We can see that if x is positive and y is negative, then we get: Since, x is positive, and y is negative.

Then, 2xy ≠ x –y.

Thus, the case of x being positive and y being negative can be ruled out.

Similarly, x being negative and y being positive can also be ruled out.

Therefore, x and y have to be either positive or negative.

When x and y are both positive, we get:

f(x) = f(y) And when x and y are both negative, we get:

f(x) = f(y) f is one- one.

Now, let y ϵ R such that -1 < y < 1.

It y is negative, then there exists such that f is onto.

Therefore, f is one – one and onto.
