Bijection iff Left and Right Cancellable
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Let $f$ be a mapping.
Then $f$ is a bijection if and only if $f$ is both left cancellable and right cancellable.
Follows directly from:
- Injection iff Left Cancellable: $f$ is an injection if and only if $f$ is left cancellable
- Surjection iff Right Cancellable: $f$ is a surjection if and only if $f$ is right cancellable.
