Rev.

For example: {( 1,4),( 3,5),(1,2),(7, 2)} ! ! ! * A function is a relation in which, for each value of the first component of the ordered pairs, there is exactly one value of the second component. * A function from X into Y is a relation that associates with each element of X exactly one element of Y . * In a relation, the set of all values of the independent variable is the domain ; the set of all values of the dependent variable is the range . * Vertical Line Test: If every vertical line intersects the graph of a relation only once, the relation is a function
