Functions: Domain and Range (page 2 of 2) Sections: Functions versus relations , Domain and range Let's return to the subject of domain and range. When functions are first introduced, you will probably have some slightly pathetic "functions" and relations to deal with, being just sets of points. These won't be terribly useful or interesting functions and relations, but your text wants you to get the idea of what the domain and range are. For instance: State the domain and range of the following relation. Is the relation a function? {(2, –3), (4, 6), (3, –1), (6, 6), (2, 3)} This list of points, being a relationship between certain x 's and certain y 's, is a relation. The domain is all the x -values, and the range is all the y -values. You list the values without duplication: domain: {2, 3, 4, 6} range: {–3, –1, 3, 6} (It is customary to list these values in numerical order, but it is not required. Sets are called "unordered lists", so you can list the numbers in any order you feel like. Just don't duplicate: technically, repititions are okay in sets, but most instructions would count off for this.) While this is a relation (because x 's and y 's are being related to each other), you have two points

### What students are saying

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
