Which one the following relations on A = {1, 2, 3} is a function?
Question:

Which one the following relations on A = {1, 2, 3} is a function?

f = {(1, 3), (2, 3), (3, 2)}, g = {(1, 2), (1, 3), (3, 1)}       

Solution:

As, each element of the domain set has unique image in the relation f = {(1, 3), (2, 3), (3, 2)}

So, f is a function.

Also, the element 1 of the domain set has two images 2 and 3 of the range set in the relation g = {(1, 2), (1, 3), (3, 1)}

So, g is not a function.
