Sets and Functions (XXXIV)

Functions

Let X be a non-empty set. The identity mapping ix on X is the mapping of X onto itself

defined by ix(x) = x for every x. Thus ix sends each element of X to itself; that is,

it leaves fixed each element of X. Show that f ix = ix f = f for any mapping f of X into

itself.
