A={1,2,3,4,5}, B={2,6,12,20,30}, we can find a relation from A to B by inspection. That is set B is related to set A by the relation and this is one possible relation from set A to set B

The NCERT solutions for class 11 maths chapter 2 relations and functions start with cartesian products of sets. The main points to remember in these topics are:

1. Cartesian products two sets A and B are set of all ordered pair of the elements from A and B, for example, A={1,2,3}, B= {2,3} then

2. If set A contains n elements and set B contains m elements then Cartesian Products A and B contains mn elements.

3. Two ordered pairs are equal if corresponding first and second elements are equal. That is if (a,b) =(c,d) then a=c and b=d

2.1 Introduction

2.2 Cartesian Products of Sets

2.3 Relations

2.4 Functions

The second important topic of this chapter is a relation. A few points to remember are listed below

1. A relation from non-empty set A to non-empty set B is a subset of

2. The set of all first elements of the ordered pairs in a relation R from a set A to a set B is called the domain R and the set of all second elements in a relation R from a set A to a set B is called the range of R., For example, consider a relation R from set A ={1,2,3,4} to Set B={1,2,3.........20} of real numbers defined by R={(1,1),(2,4),(3,9),(4,16)}. Then the set {1,2,3,4} is the domain of R and {1,4,9,16} is the range of R and the whole set B is the codomain.

3. Let the set A has n element and set B has m element then the number of possible relation from A to B is

The last topic of this chapter is functions: A relation R from set A to set B is called as a function if every element of set A has only one image in set B.
