Math 1300 Section 2.6 Notes 2 The DOMAIN of a relation is the set of all the first elements (the x -values or x -coordinates) in the ordered pairs. The RANGE of a relation is the set of all the second elements (the y -values or y -coordinates) in the ordered pairs. A FUNCTION is a special relation in which each element, x , of the domain is paired with exactly (only) one element, called f ( x ), of the range. One way to test a relation to see if it is a function is by using the vertical line test. 1.
