Q. 8

# If then let us show that, f(a) + f(b) = f(a + b)

We have Let us simplify it,   f(x) = x …(i)

To show, f(a) + f(b) = f(a + b)

Take LHS: f(a) + f(b)

Just replace x by a in equation (i),

f(a) = a

Now, replace x by b in equation (i),

f(b) = b

LHS: f(a) + f(b)

f(a) + f(b) = a + b …(ii)

Now, Put (a + b) in equation (i),

f(a + b) = a + b

Replace (a + b) in equation (ii) from f(a + b), we get

f(a) + f(b) = f(a + b)

Thus, shown that f(a) + f(b) = f(a + b).
