- A function $f: A \rightarrow B$ where for every $x1, x2 \in X, f(x1) = f(x2) \Rightarrow x1 = x2$ is called a one-one function.
- A function$ f : X \rightarrow Y$ is said to be onto or surjective, if every element of Y is the image of some element of X under f, i.e., for every $y \in Y$, there exists an element x in X such that $f(x) = y$.
- |x| is always non negative

$ f:N\to N\qquad f(x)=x^2$

Let x and y be two elements in N

$f(x)=f(y)$

=>$x^2=y^2$

=>$x=y$

For the function f to be injective f(x) =f(y) => x=y

f defined by$ f:N\to N\qquad f(x)=x^2$ is injective

$2 \in N $ there does not exist any x in N

Such that $f(x)=x^2-2$

$\sqrt 2 \notin N$

For every y in N there does not exist an element in N such that f(x)=y

Hence $ f:N\to N\qquad f(x)=x^2$ is not surjective

Hence f is injective but not surjective

Therefore $ f:N\to N\qquad f(x)=x^2$ is injective but not surjective
