The is the set of all values of the independent variable (typically x ) that produce real values for the dependent variable (typically y ). The is the set of all possible y values as x varies throughout the domain. Example 2: Find the domain and range of each function in Example 1. Vertical Line Test: An equation defines a if each vertical line in the coordinate system passes through at most one point on the graph of the equation. Example 3: Determine whether each is a function of x . a) 4 2-2-4-2-4 2 4 b) 2 4-4 2 4-2-2-4 c)-2-4-2-4 2 4 2 4 2 c circlecopyrt Kendra Kilmer January 20, 2009 Function Notation: If the correspondence is a function we use the notation...
