Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let x=0, y=1 to get: f(0*f(1))*f(1)=(f(0+1) f(0)*f(1)=f(1) therefore f(0)=1 let y=2 to get: f(x*f(2))*f(2) = f(x+2) f(0)*0=f(x+2) therefore f(x+2)=0 let x = y = 1 to get: f(1*f(1))*f(1) = f(1+1) f(f(1))*f(1) = f(2) = 0 therefore f(f(1)) = 0 since f(1) cannot be zero from the question statement. summary: f(0) = 1 f(x+2) = 0 f(f(1)) = 0 therefore: f(x) = 1 for x=0 f(x) = ? for x=1 f(x) = 0 for x >= 2 f(f(1)) = 0 => f(1) >= 2 ?
