Normally relation deals with matching of elements from the first set called

DOMAIN with the element of the second set called RANGE.
Definitions:
A
function is a relation with a property that for each element in the
domain there is only one corresponding element in the range or co-
domain
Therefore functions are relations but not all relations are functions
The Concept of a Functions Pictorially
Explain the concept of a functions pictorially
Example 1
Which of the following relation are functions?
Solution
  1. It is not a function since 3 and 6 remain unmapped.
  2. It is not a function because 2 has two images ( 5 and 6)
  3. It is a function because each of 1, 2, 3 and 4 is connected to exactly one of 5, 6 or 7.
Functions
Identify functions
TESTING FOR FUNCTIONS;
If
a line parallel to the y-axis is drawn and it passes through two or
more points on the graph of the relation then the relation is not a
function.
If it passes through only one point then the relation is a function
Example 2
Identify each of the following graphs as functions or not.
Exercise 1
1. Which of the following relations are functions?
2. Let A = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}
and B ={ 2, 3, 5, 7 }
Draw an arrow diagram to illustrate the relation “ is a multiple of ‘ is it a function ? why?
3. let A = {1,-1 ,2,-2} and
B = {1, 2, 3, 4 } which of the following relations are functions ?
  1. { ( x , y ) : x < y }
  2. { ( x , y ) : x > y}
  3. { ( x , y ) : y = x2}

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was
    curious what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  2. My brother suggested I may like this blog. He was entirely right.
    This put up truly made my day. You can not consider simply how much time I had spent
    for this information! Thank you! asmr 0mniartist

  4. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole
    my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
