Answers (1)


Here given that \left \{ 1,2,3....n \right \}  is the set.

Here we have find all onto function from the given set.


Since if f is onto then all element have a unique pre image.


Taking the set \left \{ 1,2,3 \right \}

\therefore Total number of one-one function 3\times 2\times 1=6

As example since f is onto, all elements of \left \{ 1,2,3 \right \} have unique pre-image

Element Number of possible pairs
1 3
2 2
3 1

So as the diagram, we get

Elements Number of possible pairs
1 n
2 n-1
3 n-2
. .
. .
n-1 .
n 2

So as the diagram, we get n \times(n-1) \times(n-2) \times \ldots \times 2 \times 1=n !
