4-2 Relations and Functions

Warm Up
Generate ordered pairs for the function
y = x + 3 for x = 2, 1, 0, 1, and 2.
Find the y values, and put them together as
an ordered pairs as (x,y)

Representations of Relations
Example 1:
Express the relation {(2, 3), (4, 7), (6, 8)}:
1. as a table,
2. as a graph,
3. and as a mapping diagram.

Write all x-values under x and


all y-values under y. Draw an
arrow from each x-value to its
corresponding y-value.

4-2 Relations and Functions

The domain of a relation is the set


of first coordinates (or x-values) of
the ordered pairs.
The range of a relation is the set
of second coordinates (or y-values)
of the ordered pairs.

4-2 Relations and Functions


A function is a special type of relation
that pairs each domain value with
exactly one range value.
Notes:
If it is a function, then none of x
(domain) value should be repeated

Example 3A: Identifying Functions
Give the domain and range of the relation. Tell
whether the relation is a function. Explain.
{(3, 2), (5, 1), (4, 0), (3, 1)}

The relation is not a function. Each domain value


does not have exactly one range value.
The domain value 3 is repeated, paired with the
range values 2 and 1.

Example 3C: Identifying Functions
Give the domain and range of the relation. Tell
whether the relation is a function. Explain.

Draw in lines to see


the domain and range

Check out the points
that the line cut

The relation is not a function. Nearly all domain


values have more than one range value.
