# Label each of the following statements as either true or false.Let g : A → B and f : B → C such that f ∘ g is onto. Then both f and g are onto.

To determine

Whether the statement, “Let g:AB and f:BC such that fg is onto. Then both f and g are onto” is true or false.

Explanation

Formula used:

1) A standard way to demonstrate that f:AB is onto is to take an arbitrary element b in B and show that there exists an element aA such that b=f(x).

2) To show that a given mapping f:AB is not onto, find single element b in B for which no xA exists such that b=f(x).

Explanation:

Consider the statement, “Let g:AB and f:BC such that fg is onto. Then both f and g are onto.”

Let f:{1,1} defined by f(x)=(1)x

Also g: defined by g(x)=3x

By using definition of a composition function,

fg:{1,1} is defined by

(fg)(x)=f(g(x))=f(3x)=(1)3x

Since (fg)(2)=(1)32=(1)6=1 and

(fg)(1)=(1)31=(1)3=1

This implies 1 has preimage 1 and 1 has a preimage 2 in
