#### Question 1:

Given A = {1, 2, 3}, B = {3, 4}, C ={4, 5, 6}, find (A × B) ∩ (B × C).

#### Answer:

Given:

A = {1, 2, 3}, B = {3, 4} and C = {4, 5, 6}

Now,

(A × B) = {(1, 3), (1, 4), (2, 3), (2, 4), (3, 3), (3, 4)}

(B × C) = {(3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6), (4, 4), (4, 5), (4, 6)}

∴ (A × B) ∩ (B × C) = {(3, 4)}

If *A* = {2, 3}, *B* = {4, 5}, *C* ={5, 6}, find *A* × (*B* ∪ *C*), A × (*B* ∩ *C*), (*A* × *B*) ∪ (*A* × *C*).

#### Answer:

Given:

*A* = {2, 3}, *B* = {4, 5} and *C* ={5, 6}

Also,

(*B* ∪ *C*) = {4, 5, 6}

Thus, we have:

*A* × (*B* ∪ *C*) = {(2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3,6)}

And,

(*B* ∩ *C*) = {5}

Thus, we have:

A × (*B* ∩ *C*) = {(2, 5), (3, 5)}

Now,

(*A* × *B*) = {(2, 4), (2, 5), (3, 4), (3, 5)}

(*A* × *C*) = {(2, 5), (2, 6), (3, 5), (3, 6)}

∴ (*A* × *B*) ∪ (*A* × *C*) = {(2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6)}

Now,

(*A* × *B*) = {(1, 4), (2, 4), (3, 4)}

And,

(*A* × *C*) = {(1, 5), (2, 5), (3, 5)}

RHS: (*A* × *B*) − (*A* × *C*) = $\varphi $

∴ LHS = RHS

#### Answer:

Given:

A = {1, 2, 3}, B = {3, 4} and C = {4, 5, 6}

(i) A × (B ∩ C)

Now,

(B ∩ C) = {4}

∴ A × (B ∩ C) = {(1, 4), (2, 4), (3, 4)}

(ii) (A × B) ∩ (A × C)

Now,

(A × B) = {(1, 3), (1, 4), (2, 3), (2, 4), (3, 3), (3, 4)}

And,

(A × C) = {(1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6)}

∴ (A × B) ∩ (A × C) = {(1, 4), (2, 4), (3, 4)}

(iii) A × (B ∪ C)

Now,

(B ∪ C) = {3, 4, 5, 6}

∴ A × (B ∪ C) = {(1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6), (3, 3), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6)}

Now,

(A × B) = {(1, 3), (1, 4), (2, 3), (2, 4), (3, 3), (3, 4)}

And,

(A × C) = {(1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6)}

∴ (A × B) ∪ (A × C) = {(1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6), (3, 3), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6)}

#### Question 6:

Prove that: (i) (*A* ∪ *B*) × *C* = (*A* × *C*) ∪ (*B* × *C*) (ii) (*A* ∩ B) × C = (*A* × *C*) ∩ (B×*C*)

#### Answer:

(i) (*A* ∪ *B*) × *C* = (*A* × *C*) ∪ (*B* × *C*)

Let* *(*a, b*) be an arbitrary element of (*A* ∪ *B*) × *C.*

Thus, we have:

$(a,b)\in (A\cup B)\times C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow a\in (A\cup B)andb\in C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (a\in Aora\in B)andb\in C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (a\in Aandb\in C)or(a\in Bandb\in C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (a,b)\in (A\times C)or(a,b)\in (B\times C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (a,b)\in (A\times C)\cup (B\times C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore (A\cup B)\times C\subseteq (A\times C)\cup (B\times C)...\left(\mathrm{i}\right)$

Again, let (*x*,* y*)* *be an arbitrary element of (*A* × *C*) ∪ (*B* × *C*).

Thus, we have:

$(x,y)\in (A\times C)\cup (B\times C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x,y)\in (A\times C)or(x,y)\in (B\times C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x\in Ay\in C)or(x\in By\in C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x\in Aorx\in B)ory\in C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x\in A\cup B)y\in C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x,y)\in (A\cup B)\times C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore (A\times C)\cup (B\times C)\subseteq (A\cup B)\times C...\left(\mathrm{ii}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

From (i) and (ii), we get:

(*A* ∪ *B*) × *C* = (*A* × *C*) ∪ (*B* × *C*)

(ii) (*A* ∩ B) × C = (*A* × *C*) ∩ (B×*C*)

Let* *(*a*,* b*)* *be an arbitrary element of (*A* ∩ B) × C.

Thus, we have:

$(a,b)\in (A\cap B)\times C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow a\in (A\cap B)b\in C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (a\in Aa\in B)b\in C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (a\in Ab\in C)(a\in Bb\in C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (a,b)\in (A\times C)(a,b)\in (B\times C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (a,b)\in (A\times C)\cap (B\times C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore (A\cap B)\times C\subseteq (A\times C)\cap (B\times C)...\left(\mathrm{iii}\right)$

Again, let (*x*,* y*) be an arbitrary element of (*A* × *C*) ∩ (*B* × *C*).

Thus, we have:

$(x,y)\in (A\times C)\cap (B\times C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x,y)\in (A\times C)(x,y)\in (B\times C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x\in Ay\in C)(x\in By\in C)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x\in Ax\in B)y\in C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x\in (A\cap B)y\in C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x,y)\in (A\cap B)\times C\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore (A\times C)\cap (B\times C)\subseteq (A\cap B)\times C...\left(\mathrm{iv}\right)$

From (iii) and (iv), we get:

(*A* ∩ *B*) × *C* = (*A* × *C*) ∩ (*B* × *C*)

If *A* × *B* ⊆ *C* × *D* and *A* × *B* ≠ ϕ, prove that *A* ⊆ *C* and *B* ⊆ *D*.

#### Answer:

$\mathrm{Let}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}(x,y)\in (A\times B)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore x\in A,y\in B\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Now},\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\because (A\times B)\subseteq (C\times D)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore (x,y)\in (C\times D)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Or},\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}x\in Candy\in D\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Thus},\mathrm{we}\mathrm{have}:\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}A\subseteq CB\subseteq D\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

#### Question 1:

If A = [1, 2, 3], B = [4, 5, 6], which of the following are relations from A to B? Give reasons in support of your answer.

(i) [(1, 6), (3, 4), (5, 2)]

(ii) [(1, 5), (2, 6), (3, 4), (3, 6)]

(iii) [(4, 2), (4, 3), (5, 1)]

(iv) A × B.

#### Answer:

Given:

A = {1, 2, 3} and B = {4, 5, 6}

Thus, we have:

A × B = {(1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 6)}

(i) {(1, 6), (3, 4), (5, 2)}

Since it is not a subset of A × B, it is not a relation from A to B.

(ii) {(1, 5), (2, 6), (3, 4), (3, 6)}

Since it is a subset of A × B, it is a relation from A to B.

(iii) {(4, 2), (4, 3), (5, 1)}

Since it is not a subset of A × B, it is not a relation from A to B.

(iv) A × B

Since it is a subset (equal to) of A × B, it is a relation from A to B.

#### Question 2:

A relation R is defined from a set A = [2, 3, 4, 5] to a set B = [3, 6, 7, 10] as follows:

(*x*, *y*) ∈ R ⇔ *x* is relatively prime to *y*

Express R as a set of ordered pairs and determine its domain and range.

#### Answer:

Given:

(*x*, *y*) ∈ R ⇔ *x* is relatively prime to y.

Here,

2 is co-prime to 3 and 7.

3 is co-prime to 7 and 10.

4 is co-prime to 3 and 7.

5 is co-prime to 3, 6 and 7.

Thus, we get:

R = {(2, 3), (2, 7), (3, 7), (3, 10), (4, 3), (4, 7), (5, 3), (5, 6), (5, 7)}

Domain of R = {2, 3, 4, 5}

Range of R = {3, 7, 6, 10}

#### Page No 2.20:

#### Question 3:

Let A be the set of first five natural numbers and let R be a relation on A defined as follows:

(*x*, *y*) ∈ R ⇔ *x* ≤ *y*

Express R and R^{−1} as sets of ordered pairs. Determine also (i) the domain of R^{−1} (ii) the range of R.

#### Answer:

Given:

A is the set of the first five natural numbers.

∴ A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

The relation is defined as:

(*x*, *y*) ∈ R ⇔ *x* ≤ *y*

Now,

R = {(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (3, 3), (3, 4), (3, 5), (4, 4), (4, 5), (5, 5)}

R^{-1} = {(1, 1), (2, 1), (3, 1), (4, 1), (5, 1), (2, 2), (3, 2), (4, 2), (5, 2), (3, 3), (4, 3), (5, 3), (4, 4), (5, 4), (5, 5)}

(i) Domain of R^{-1} = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

(ii) Range of R = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

#### Page No 2.20:

#### Question 4:

Find the inverse relation R^{−1} in each of the following cases:

(i) R = {(1, 2), (1, 3), (2, 3), (3, 2), (5, 6)}

(ii) R = {(*x*, *y*), : *x*, *y* ∈ N, *x* + 2*y* = 8}

(iii) R is a relation from {11, 12, 13} to (8, 10, 12] defined by *y* = *x* − 3.

#### Answer:

(i) R = {(1, 2), (1, 3), (2, 3), (3, 2), (5, 6)}

R^{−1}^{ }= {(2, 1), (3, 1), (3, 2), (2, 3), (6, 5)}

(ii) R = {(*x*, *y*) : *x*, *y* ∈ N, *x* + 2*y* = 8}

On solving *x* + 2*y* = 8, we get:

*x* = 8 $-$ 2*y*

On putting *y* = 1, we get *x* = 6.

On putting *y* = 2, we get *x* = 4.

On putting *y* = 3, we get *x* = 2.

∴ R = {(6, 1), (4, 2), (2, 3)}

Or,

R^{−1}^{ }= {(1, 6), (2, 4), (3, 2)}

(iii) R is a relation from {11, 12, 13} to {8, 10, 12} defined by *y* = *x* − 3.

*x* belongs to {11, 12, 13} and y belongs to {8, 10, 12}.

Also, 11 − 3 = 8 and 13 − 3 = 10

∴ R = {(11, 8), (13,10)}

Or,

R^{−1}^{ }= {(8, 11), (10,13)}

#### Page No 2.20:

#### Question 5:

Write the following relation as the sets of ordered pairs:

(i) A relation R from the set [2, 3, 4, 5, 6] to the set [1, 2, 3] defined by *x* = 2*y*.

(ii) A relation R on the set [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7] defined by (*x*, *y*) ∈ R ⇔ *x* is relatively prime to *y*.

(iii) A relation R on the set [0, 1, 2, ....., 10] defined by 2*x* + 3*y* = 12.

(iv) A relation R from a set A = [5, 6, 7, 8] to the set B = [10, 12, 15, 16,18] defined by (*x*, *y*) ∈ R ⇔ *x* divides *y*.

#### Answer:

(i) A relation R from the set [2, 3, 4, 5, 6] to the set [1, 2, 3] is defined by *x* = 2*y*.

Putting *y* = 1, 2, 3 in *x* = 2*y*, we get:

*x* = 2, 4, 6

∴ R = {(2, 1), (4, 2), (6, 3)}

(ii) A relation R on the set [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7] defined by (*x*, *y*) ∈ R ⇔ *x* is relatively prime to *y.*

Here,

2 is relatively prime to 3, 5 and 7.

3 is relatively prime to 2, 4, 5 and 7.

4 is relatively prime to 3, 5 and 7.

5 is relatively prime to 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7.

6 is relatively prime to 5 and 7.

7 is relatively prime to 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

∴ R = {(2, 3), (2, 5), (2, 7), (3, 2), (3, 4), (3, 5), (3, 7), (4, 3), (4, 5), (4, 7), (5, 2), (5, 3), (5, 4), (5, 6), (5, 7), (6, 5), (6, 7), (7, 2), (7, 3), (7,4), (7, 5), (7, 6)}

(iii) A relation R on the set [0, 1, 2,..., 10] is defined by 2*x* + 3*y* = 12.

$x=\frac{12-3y}{2}$

Putting *y* = 0, 2, 4, we get:

*x* = 6, 3, 0

∴ R = {(0, 4), (3, 2), (6, 0)}

(iv) A relation R from the set A = [5, 6, 7, 8] to the set B = [10, 12, 15, 16, 18] defined by (*x*, *y*) ∈ R ⇔ *x* divides *y*.

Here,

5 divides 10 and 15.

6 divides 12 and 18.

8 divides 16.

∴ R = {(5, 10), (5, 15), (6, 12), (6, 18), (8,16)}

#### Page No 2.20:

#### Question 6:

Let *R* be a relation in N defined by (*x*, *y*) ∈ R ⇔ *x* + 2*y* =8. Express R and R^{−1} as sets of ordered pairs.

#### Answer:

Let *R* be a relation in N defined by (*x*, *y*) ∈ R ⇔ *x* + 2*y* = 8.

We have:

*x* = 8$-$2*y*

For *y* = 3, 2, 1, we have:

*x* = 2, 4, 6

∴ *R* = {(2, 3), (4, 2), (6, 1)}

And,

*R*^{−1}^{ }= {(3, 2), (2, 4), (1, 6)}

#### Page No 2.21:

#### Question 7:

Let A = (3, 5) and B = (7, 11). Let R = {(*a*, *b*) : *a* ∈ A, *b* ∈ B, *a* − *b* is odd}. Show that R is an empty relation from A into B.

#### Answer:

Given:

A = (3, 5) and B = (7, 11)

Also,

R = {(*a*, *b*) : *a* ∈ A, *b* ∈ B, *a* − *b* is odd}

*a* are the elements of A and *b* are the elements of B.

$\therefore a-b=3-7,3-11,5-7,5-11\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow a-b=-4,-8,-2,-6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Here},a-b\mathrm{is}\mathrm{always}\mathrm{an}\mathrm{even}\mathrm{number}.$

So, R is an empty relation from A to B.

Hence proved.

#### Question 8:

Let A = [1, 2] and B = [3, 4]. Find the total number of relation from A into B.

#### Answer:

We have:

A = {1, 2} and B = {3, 4}

Now,

$n(A\times B)=n\left(A\right)\times n\left(B\right)=2\times 2=4$

There are 2* ^{n}* relations from A to B, where

*n*is the number of elements in their Cartesian product.

∴ Number of relations from A to B is 2

^{4}= 16.

#### Question 9:

Determine the domain and range of the relation R defined by

(i) R = [(*x*, *x* + 5): *x* ∈ (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)]

(ii) R = {(*x*, *x*^{3}) :* x* is a prime number less than 10}

#### Answer:

(i) R = {(*x*, *x* + 5): *x* ∈ (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)}

We have:

R = {(0, 0 + 5), (1, 1 + 5), (2, 2 + 5), (3, 3 + 5), (4, 4 + 5), (5, 5 + 5)}

Or, R = {(0, 5), (1, 6), (2, 7), (3, 8), (4, 9), (5, 10)}

∴ Domain (R) = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

Range (R) = {5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}

(ii) R = {(*x*, *x*^{3}) :* x* is a prime number less than 10}

We have:

*x* = 2, 3, 5, 7

*x*^{3}^{ }= 8, 27, 125, 343

Thus, we get:

R = {(2, 8), (3, 27), (5, 125), (7, 343)}

Domain (R) = {2, 3, 5, 7}

Range (R) = {8, 27, 125, 343}

(i) R = {(*a*, *b*) : *a* ∈ N, *a* < 5, *b* = 4}

(ii) $S=\left\{\left(a,b\right):b=\left|a-1\right|,a\in Z\mathrm{and}\left|a\right|\le 3\right\}$

#### Answer:

(i) *R *= {(*a*, *b*) : *a* ∈ N, *a* < 5, *b* = 4}

We have:

*a *= 1, 2, 3, 4

*b *= 4

*R* = {(1, 4), (2, 4), (3, 4), (4, 4)}

Domain (*R*) = {1, 2, 3, 4}

Range (*R*) = {4}

(ii) $S=\left\{\left(a,b\right):b=\left|a-1\right|,a\in Z\mathrm{and}\left|a\right|\le 3\right\}$

Now,

*a *= $-$3, $-$2, $-$1, 0, 1, 2, 3

$b=\left|-3-1\right|=4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}b=\left|-2-1\right|=3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}b=\left|-1-1\right|=2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}b=\left|0-1\right|=1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}b=\left|1-1\right|=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}b=\left|2-1\right|=1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}b=\left|3-1\right|=2$

Thus, we have:

*b* = 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2

Or,

S = {($-$3, 4), ($-$2, 3), ($-$1, 2), (0, 1), (1, 0), (2, 1), (3, 2)}

Domain (*S*) = {$-$3, $-$2, $-$1, 0, 1, 2, 3}

Range (*S*) = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4}

#### Question 11:

Let A = {*a*, *b*}. List all relations on A and find their number.

#### Answer:

Any relation in *A* can be written as a set of ordered pairs.

The only ordered pairs that can be included are (*a*, *a*), (*a, b*), (*b, a*) and (*b, b*).

There are four ordered pairs in the set, and each subset is a unique combination of them.

Each unique combination makes different relations in A.

{ } [the empty set]

{(*a, a*)}

{(*a, b*)}

{(*a, a*), (*a, b*)}

{(*b, a*)}

{(*a, a*), (*b, a*)}

{(*a, b*), (*b, a*)}

{(*a, a*), (*a, b*), (*b, a*)}

{(*b, b*)}

{(*a, a*), (*b, b*)}

{(*a, b*), (*b, b*)}

{(*a, a*), (*a, b*), (*b, b*)}

{(*b, a*), (*b, b*)}

{(*a, a*), (*b, a*), (*b, b*)}

{(*a, b*), (*b, a*), (*b, b*)}

{(*a ,a*), (*a, b*), (*b, a*), (*b, b*)}

Number of elements in the Cartesian product of *A* and *A* = $2\times 2=4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

∴ Number of relations = ${2}^{4}=16$

Now,

Number of elements in the Cartesian product of $A\mathrm{and}B=3\times 2=6\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

Number of relations from *A* to *B* = ${2}^{6}=64$

(ii) (*a*, *b*) ∈ R ⇒ (*b*, *a*) ∈ R

(iii) (*a*, *b*) ∈ R and (*b*, *c*) ∈ R ⇒ (*a*, *c*) ∈ R

#### Answer:

Given: R = [(*a*, *b*) : *a*, *b* ∈ N and *a* = *b*^{2}]

(i) (*a*, *a*) ∈ R for all *a* ∈ N.

Here, 2 ∈N, but $2\ne {2}^{2}$.

∴ (2,2)$\notin $R

False

(ii) (*a*, *b*) ∈ R ⇒ (*b*, *a*) ∈ R

∵ 4 = 2^{2}

(4, 2) ∈ R, but (2,4)$\notin $R.

False

(iii) (*a*, *b*) ∈ R and (*b*, *c*) ∈ R ⇒ (*a*, *c*) ∈ R

∵ 16 = 4^{2} and 4 = 2^{2}

∴ (16, 4) ∈ R and (4, 2) ∈ R

Here,

(16,2)$\notin $R

False

#### Answer:

A = [1, 2, 3,..., 14]

R = {(*x*, *y*) : 3*x* − *y* = 0, where *x*, *y* ∈ A}

Or,

R = {(*x*, *y*) : 3*x* = *y*, where *x*, *y* ∈ A}

As

#### Answer:

R = {(*x*, *y*) : *y* = *x* + 5, *x* is a natural number less than 4, *x*, *y* ∈ N}

(i) ∵ *x = *1, 2, 3

*∴ y *= 1 + 5, 2 + 5, 3 + 5

y = 6, 7, 8

Thus, we have:

R = {(1, 6), (2, 7), (3, 8)}

#### Answer:

A = [1, 2, 3, 5] and B = [4, 6, 9]

R = {(*x*, *y*) : the difference between *x* and *y* is odd, *x* ∈ A, *y* ∈ B}

For* x* = 1,

4$-$1 = 3 and 6$-$1 = 5

*y* = 4, 6

For *x* = 2,

9$-$2 = 7

*y* = 9

For *x* = 3,

4$-$3 = 1 and 6$-$3 = 3

*y* = 4, 6

For *x* = 5,

5$-$4 =1 and 6$-$5 =1

*y* = 4, 6

Thus, we have:

R = {(1, 4), (1, 6), (2, 9), (3, 4), (3, 6), (5, 4), (5, 6)}

(i) Writer R in roster form

(ii) Find the domain of R

(ii) Find the range of R.

#### Answer:

A = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]

R = {(*a*, *b*) : *a*, *b* ∈ A, *b* is exactly divisible by *a*}

(i) Here,

2 is divisible by 1 and 2.

3 is divisible by 1 and 3.

4 is divisible by 1 and 4.

5 is divisible by 1 and 5.

6 is divisible by 1, 2, 3 and 6.

Find the domain and range of R.

#### Answer:

R = {(*a*, *b*) : *a*, *b* ∈ Z, *a − b* is an integer}

We know:

Difference of any two integers is always an integer.

Thus, for all *a*, *b* ∈ Z, we get *a* − *b *as an integer.

∴ Domain (R) = Z

And,

Range (R) = Z

#### Question 21:

For the relation R_{1} defined on R by the rule (*a*, *b*) ∈ R_{1} ⇔ 1 + *ab* > 0.

Prove that: (*a*, *b*) ∈ R_{1} and (*b* , *c*) ∈ R_{1} ⇒ (*a*, *c*) ∈ R_{1} is not true for all *a*, *b*, *c* ∈ R.

#### Answer:

We have:

(*a*, *b*) ∈ R_{1} ⇔ 1 + *ab* > 0

Let:

a = 1, b = $-\frac{1}{2}$ and c = $-$4

Now,

$\left(1,-\frac{1}{2}\right)\in {R}_{1}and\left(-\frac{1}{2},-4\right)\in {R}_{1}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$, as $1+\left(-\frac{1}{2}\right)0and1+\left(-\frac{1}{2}\right)\left(-4\right)0$.

But $1+1\times \left(-4\right)0$.

∴ (1,$-$4) $\notin {R}_{1}$

And,

(*a*, *b*) ∈ R_{1} and (*b* , *c*) ∈ R_{1}

Thus, (*a*, *c*) ∈ R_{1} is not true for all *a*, *b*, *c* ∈ R.

#### Answer:

We are given ,

(*a*, *b*) R (*c*, *d*) ⇔ *a* + *d* = *b* + *c* for all (*a*, *b*), (*c*, *d*) ∈ N × N

(i) (*a*, *b*) R (*a*, *b*) for all (*a*, *b*) ∈ N × N

A = (11, 12, 13) and B = (8, 10, 12)

R is defined by (*y* = *x* − 3) from A to B.

We know:

8 = 11$-$3

#### Answer:

R = [(*x*, *y*) : *x*, *y* ∈ Z, *y* = 2*x* − 4]

(*a*, $-$2) and (4, *b*^{2}) ∈ R

$\mathrm{So,}-2\; =\; 2(a)\; -4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2=2a\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow a=1$

$\mathrm{Also},{b}^{2}=2\left(4\right)-4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {b}^{2}=4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow b=\pm 2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}$

*x* + 2*y* = 8

⇒* x* = 8 $-$ 2y

For *y* = 1, *x* = 6

*y* = 2, *x* = 4

*y* = 3, *x* = 2

Then R = {(2,3),(4,2),(6,1)}

∴ Domain of R = {2,4,6}

#### Question 1:

(i) If $\left(\frac{a}{3}+1,b-\frac{2}{3}\right)=\left(\frac{5}{3},\frac{1}{3}\right)$, find the values of *a* and *b*.

(ii) If (*x* + 1, 1) = (3, *y* − 2), find the values of *x* and *y*.

#### Answer:

(i) $\left(\frac{a}{3}+1,b-\frac{2}{3}\right)=\left(\frac{5}{3},\frac{1}{3}\right)$

By the definition of equality of ordered pairs, we have:

$\left(\frac{a}{3}+1,b-\frac{2}{3}\right)=\left(\frac{5}{3},\frac{1}{3}\right)$

$\Rightarrow \left(\frac{a}{3}+1\right)=\frac{5}{3}\mathrm{and}\left(b-\frac{2}{3}\right)=\frac{1}{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{a}{3}=\frac{5}{3}-1\mathrm{and}b=\frac{1}{3}+\frac{2}{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{a}{3}=\frac{2}{3}\mathrm{and}b=1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow a=2\mathrm{and}b=1$

(ii) (*x* + 1, 1) = (3, *y* − 2)

By the definition of equality of ordered pairs, we have:

$(x+1)=3\mathrm{and}1=(y-2)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=2\mathrm{and}y=3$

#### Page No 2.8:

#### Question 2:

If the ordered pairs (*x*, −1) and (5, *y*) belong to the set {(*a*, *b*) : *b* = 2*a* − 3}, find the values of *x* and *y*.

#### Answer:

The ordered pairs (*x*, −1) and (5, *y*) belong to the set {(*a*, *b*) : *b* = 2*a* − 3}.

Thus, we have:

*x = a *and −1 *= b *such that *b* = 2*a* − 3.

∴ −1 = 2*x** *− 3

or, 2*x* = 3 − 1 = 2

or,* x* = 1

Also,

5 = *a *and *y = b* such that *b* = 2*a* − 3.

∴ *y* = 2(5) − 3

or, *y *= 10 − 3 = 7

Thus, we get:

*x *= 1 and *y = *7

#### Question 3:

If *a* ∈ [−1, 2, 3, 4, 5] and *b* ∈ [0, 3, 6], write the set of all ordered pairs (*a*, *b*) such that *a* + *b* = 5.

#### Answer:

Given:

*a* ∈ [−1, 2, 3, 4, 5] and *b* ∈ [0, 3, 6]

We know:

−1 + 6 = 5, 2 + 3 = 5 and 5 + 0 = 5

Thus, possible ordered pairs (*a*, *b*) are {(−1, 6), (2, 3), (5, 0)} such that *a* + *b* = 5.

#### Question 4:

If *a* ∈ [2, 4, 6, 9] and *b* ∈ [4, 6, 18, 27], then form the set of all ordered pairs (*a*, *b*) such that a divides *b* and *a* < *b*.

#### Answer:

Given:

*a* ∈ [2, 4, 6, 9] and *b* ∈ [4, 6, 18, 27]

Here,

2 divides 4, 6 and 18 and 2 is less than all of them.

6 divides 18 and 6 and 6 is less than 18.

9 divides 18 and 27 and 9 is less than 18 and 27.

Now,

Set of all ordered pairs (*a*, *b*) such that a divides *b* and *a* < *b* = {(2, 4), (2, 6), (2, 18), (6, 18), (9, 18), (9, 27)}

Now,

*A* × *B = *{(1, 3), (1, 4), (2, 3), (2, 4), (3, 3), (3, 4)}

To represent *A* × *B *graphically, follow the given steps:

(a) Draw two mutually perpendicular lines—one horizontal and one vertical.

(b) On the horizontal line, represent the elements of set A; and on the vertical line, represent the elements of set B.

(c) Draw vertical dotted lines through points representing elements of set A on the horizontal line and horizontal lines through points representing elements of set B on the vertical line.

The points of intersection of these lines will represent *A* × *B* graphically.

#### Answer:

Given :

*A* = {1, 2, 3} and *B* = {2, 4}

Now,

*A* × *B =* {(1, 2), (1, 4), (2, 2), (2, 4), (3, 2), (3, 4)}

*B* × *A =* {(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (4, 1), (4, 2), (4, 3)}

*A* × *A = *{(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3)}

*B* × *B = *{(2, 2), (2, 4), (4, 2), (4, 4)}

#### Answer:

Given:

*n(A)* = 5 and *n(B)* = 4

Thus, we have:

*n(A* × *B)* = 5*(*4*)* = 20

*A* and *B* are two sets having 3 elements in common.

Now,

Let:

*A *=* **(a, a, a, b, c)* and *B *= *(a, a, a, d)*

Thus, we have:

*(A × B)* = {(*a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, d), (a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, d), (a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, d), (b, a), (b, a), (b, a), (b, d), (c, a), (c, a), (c, a), (c, d)*}

*(B × A)* = {*(a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, b), (a, c), (a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, b), (a, c), (a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, b), (a, c), (d, a), (d, a), (d, a), (d, b), (d, c)*}

[*(A × B) ∩ (B × A)*] = {*(a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, a), (a, a)}*

#### Question 9:

Let *A* and *B* be two sets. Show that the sets *A* × *B* and *B* × *A* have elements in common *iff* the sets *A* and *B* have an elements in common.

#### Answer:

Case (i): Let:

*A =* (a, b, c)

*B* = (e, f)

Now, we have:

*A* × *B = *{(*a, e*}), (*a, f*),* *(*b*,*e*), (*b, f*), (*c, e*), (*c, f*)}

*B* × *A* = {(*e, a*), (*e, b*), (*e, c*), (*f, a*), (*f, b*), (*f, c*)}

Thus, they have no elements in common.

Case (ii): Let:

*A =* (a, b, c)

*B = *(*a, f*)

Thus, we have:

*A* × *B = *{(*a, a*}), (*a,f*), (*b, a*), (*b, f*), (*c,a*), (*c, f*)}

*B* × *A* = {(*a, a*), (*a, b*), (*a, c*), (*f, a*), (*f, b*), (*f, c*)}

Here, *A* × *B *and* B* × *A* have two elements in common.

Thus, *A* × *B* and *B* × *A* will have elements in common *iff* sets *A* and *B* have elements in common.
