1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let set 'A' have 'n' number of elements and let set 'B' have 'm' number of elements and let their's a defined function f:A→B. Determine the number of possible 'onto' functions that are possible and valid..!!..prove it by mapping of elements from 'A' to 'B'..!!

2. The attempt at a solution

According to my logic there are mP1 + mP2 + mP3 +..... + mPn Permutations..

is my answer correct....and i could understand that Only if m=n, we will have mPn onto functions. If n<m, none of the functions would be onto...is my statement correct for n>m...and also gimme other logic or methods..!!
