    \[T=\left\{ f _{1} (x)=x,f _{2}(x)=\frac{ 1 }{ 1-x },f _{3}(x)\frac{ x }{ x-1 },f _{4}(x)=\frac{ x-1 }{ x },f _{5}(x)=1-x,f _{6}(x)=\frac{ 1 }{ x }\right\}\] show that T is a group or not <T,0> i've shown that 0 is associative on T can u pls help on showing the identity and the inverse

    let \[f _{7}(x) \in T\] be the identity with respect to 0,then \[(f _{7}0f _{1})(x)=(f _{1}0f _{7})(x)=f _{1}(x)\]

    the identity is unique on this case ... f(x) = x is the only identity element.

    the only way to get the inverse of a certain element u must multiply two elements and this does not clearly tell us the inverse of a function.As we know that for every function wen we use the operation combining the function and its inverse we must get the identity

    here, the operation is not multiplication ... but i think there is no unique inverser. But I am not sure ... let me do this seriously on copy.

    assuming associativity holds for all operations define your idenity by \( f_1(x) = x \) ... in any case you won't get \( f_x f_y = f_x \) if y \( \neq 1\)
