Let S and T are non empty sets. A function (mapping) f from S to T is a rule which assosiates, with element of S, a unique element of T. For s in S, the unique element of T that f assosiates with s is the image of s under f.
A mapping f from S to T is onto if every element of T is the image under f of at least one element of S.
A mapping f from S to T is a one to one if each element of S is made to correspondend with exactly one element of T, and vice versa.
Let S be the set of points in a plane. A transformation of the plane is one to one mapping from S to S. The types of transformation found in geometry are translation, reflection, rotation, and enlargement.
A boy moving down a slide is an example of translation.
Translation is a transformation which moves all points on a plane.
A man in front of the mirror is an example of reflection.
Reflection is a transformation which reflects all points of a plane in a line.
open the lid of rice cooker is an example of rotation.
Rotation is a transformation which rotate all points on a plane about a fixed point known.
The process of enlargement in copier machine is an example of enlargement.
Enlargement is a transformation which each points is mapped along a straight line down from a fixed point.
