1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Let f : X to Y . For each element b element of Y , let Y_b = f^-1({b}). Prove that the Y_b's
have the following property:
(a) If b and c are distinct elements of Y , then Yb intersection Yc = ∅.
(b) X =U_element of Y ( Yb).

2. Relevant equations



3. The attempt at a solution

Well a) we know that b≠c, but we have to prove that Y_b n Y_c is an empty set. I know it have to be an empty set becase Y_b=f^-1({b}) and Y_c=f^-1({c}); so it Y_b n Y_c would not be empty then f is not a function. But I don't know how to prove it.
b) X is a union of Y_b - I have no idea how to even start. I submitted pdf file.
