MAT 300 Awtrey MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS 1 / 17 Section 6 — Relations Ordered Pairs In discussing sets, we said that order was not important. But there are circumstances where order is important. MAT 300 Awtrey MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS 1 / 17 Section 6 — Relations Ordered Pairs In discussing sets, we said that order was not important. But there are circumstances where order is important. For example, MAT 300 Awtrey MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS 1 / 17 Section 6 — Relations Ordered Pairs In discussing sets, we said that order was not important. But there are circumstances where order is important. For example, 1 < 3 but 3 1. MAT 300 Awtrey MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS 1 / 17 Section 6 — Relations Ordered Pairs In discussing sets, we said that order was not important. But there are circumstances where order is important. For example, 1 < 3 but 3 1. As another example, in analytic geometry the coordinates of a point ( x ; y ) represent an ordered pair of numbers. MAT 300 Awtrey MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS 1 / 17 Section 6 — Relations Ordered Pairs In discussing sets, we said that order was not important. But there are circumstances where order is important. For example, 1 < 3 but 3 1. As another example, in analytic geometry the coordinates of a point ( x ; y ) represent an ordered pair of numbers. For instance, the point ( 1 ; 3 ) is different than ( 3 ; 1 ) .
