  • A function $f: X \rightarrow Y$ where for every $x1, x2 \in X, f(x1) = f(x2) \Rightarrow x1 = x2$ is called a one-one or injective 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 $f(x) = y$.
Given $ f: R \to R$ defined by $ f(x)=3-4x$
$x_1\,x_2$ be two elements $\in R$
Step1: Injective or One-One function:
$ f: R \to R$ defined by $ f(x)=3-4x$ is one one
Step 2: Surjective or On-to function:
For any element y in R then exist a real number in R such that $f(x)=y$
Let x=$\frac{3-y}{4}$
$ f: R \to R$ defined by $ f(x)=3-4x$ is onto since ,A function $f:A \to B $ is onto if for $y \in B \; then\;exist \; x \in A$ such that $f(x)=y$
Solution: Hence $ f: R \to R$ defined by $ f(x)=3-4x$ is bijection
