A Relation is a set of ordered pairs of numbers.

A Function is a relation in which domain element has a unique range element.

Domain: all the x-values in the relation.

Range: all the y-values in the relation.

Vertical Line Test: If a vertical line cross the graph no more than once, everywhere, the graph
represents a function.




State the domain and the range for the relation, then determine if the relation is a function.

Use the vertical line test to determine if each graph represents a function. State its domain and
range.




Domain:                                                 Domain:


Range:                                                  Range:




Function: yes                                           Function?
All lines that are
not vertical
are functions.

Let g(x) = x2 + 1 Find:

g(-4)                     g(5)             g(0)




g( t )                    g( 2a )   g( 3 ) – 6
Function Notation: F(x) = 3x – 7
The function name is F, and this function is in terms of x.

To evaluate the function at -3, we write F(-3)
F(-3) = 3(-3) – 7
        -9 – 7
          -16



Let f (x ) 5  2 x Find:

f (1)                                               f (0 )




f (a 2 )                                            f (a ) 2
F(x) = 2    F(x) = 3


F(2) =      F(-2) =




F(x) = -3   F(x) = 3
