I need to determine if the given map ? is an isomorphism of the first binary structure with the second, and if it is not an isomorphism, why not? I have, ?Q , . ? with ?Q , . ? where ?(x) = x^2 for x ? Q (the dot in the brackets is my atempt to to represent multiplication) Smart people.. please help!!

?(1) = ?(1), so it's not even injective.
