We have determined that it’s functional and has ordered sets of numbers for input and output (in other words it’s at least a “3” on the properties scale). It may turn out that we can’t algebraically model the re lationship but that doesn’t stop us from making a very important symbolic leap! We can associate symbols to stand in place of the verbose English of the input and output to the relationship (now a business functional relationship or just business function). Before continuing a point should be made. There are TWO functions we are talking about. One is the REAL world business functional relationship that doesn’t need math for it to exist and the mathematical function that we will end up using to model that REA L function.

    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.
