    Hi there,

    I have this question below and it is about how to prove that the function is ONTO,
    With sets, which are arbitrary sets U, V, W, Y.

    Let f:U→V and g:W→Y be onto functions.

    Prove that ϕ:U×W→V×Y, defined by ϕ(u,w)=(f(u),g(w)), where
    is an onto function.

    My approach was to say let an element, coordinate pair (v,y) ∈ VxY,
    And since we are given from the beginning that f and g are ONTO,
    that allows one to write that f(u) = v and g(w) = y.

    From this point, I am not certain how to create some
    more algebra, to somehow illustrate that ϕ:U×W→V×Y is an ONTO function.

    Hope someone can provide some insight into this.

    To prove that a function, f:X-> Y, s "ONTO" set Y we must show that for any y in Y, there exist x in X such that f(x)= y.

    In this case if y is in Vx Y then y= (v, y) with v in V and y in Y. Since f: U-> V is "onto" there exist u in U such that f(u)= v. Since g:W-> Y is "onto" there exist w in W such that g(w)= y. Then (u,w) is in UxW such that fxg(u, w)= (f(u), g(w))= (v, y) so f x g is "onto".

    To demonstrate that a function f:X→Y is "onto" or surjective onto set Y, we need to prove that for every y in set Y, there exists an x in set X such that f(x)=y.

    In this scenario, if y is an element in Y, it can be represented as (v,y) with v in V and y in Y. Given that f:U→V is "onto," there exists an u in U such that f(u)=v. Similarly, as g:W→Y is "onto," there exists a w in W such that g(w)=y. Thus, (u,w) belongs to U×W such that f×g(u,w)=(f(u),g(w))=(v,y), demonstrating that f×g is "onto".

    Many students find it difficult to do such types of question. Many students also miss their assignment due to not knowing the basic concepts. If you are one of them facing such difficulties, I would suggest you to visit Maths Assignment Help once. You can also contact them on +1 (315) 557-6473.
