U2 D1: Relations/Functions &amp; Domain/Range

Formal notes:
A _____________________is a set of pairs of input and output values. You can write them as ordered pairs.
The ___________________ of a relation is the set of all inputs, or x-coordinates of the ordered pairs.
The ____________________ of a relation is the set of all outputs, or y-coordinates of the ordered pairs.
A _______________________ is a relation in which each element of the domain is paired with exactly one
element in the range.
Look for: The same x-value, but different y-values! This means it is not a function!
Are the following relations function? State why or why not!
a)
 5,1 ,  3,5 , 8,1 ,  2, 7  ,
b)
 3,1 ,  2, 4  ,  3,3 , 1, 0  ,
Vertical Line test: A relation is a function if and only if no vertical line intersects the graph of the relation at
more than one point. If a vertical line passes through two or more points on the graph, then the relations is
not a function.
Using the Vertical Line Test, determine whether each relation is a function. Then state the domain &amp; range.
