©1999 by Design Science, Inc. 4 Function, domain, & range The domain of a function is the set of all “first coordinates” of the ordered pairs of a relation. The range of a function is the set of all “second coordinates” of the ordered pairs of a relation. A relation is a function if all values of the domain are unique (they do not repeat). A test to see if a relation is a function is the vertical line test . If it is possible to draw a vertical line and cross the graph of a relation in more than one point, the relation is not a function.
