# If the set A contains 5 elements and the set B contains 6 elements, then the number of one-one and onto mappings from A to B is

Toolbox:
• 1. A mapping from A to B is one-one
• if $f(a)=f(b) \qquad a,b \in A$
• $=> a=b$
• 2.For every element $y \in B$ there exists an element $x \in A$ such that $f(x)=y$
• 3.For a mapping to be both one-one and onto. the number of elements of A and B should be equal or a
• B subset of A
A has 5 elements
B has 6 elements
Since mumber of elements in B is more than A there cannot be any one-one and onto mapping from A to B
Solution:'c' option is correct
