Unformatted text preview: ution. The relation R consists of those points whose y -coordinate only is restricted between 1 and 3 excluding 1, but including 3. The x-coordinate is free to be whatever we like. After plotting some3 friendly elements of R, it should become clear that R consists of the region between the horizontal lines y = 1 and y = 3. Since R requires that the y -coordinates be greater than 1, but not equal to 1, we dash the line y = 1 to indicate that those points do not belong to R. Graphically, y 4 3 2 1 −4 −3 −2 −1 1 2 3 4 x The graph of R 2 3 In fact, much of our time in College Algebra will be spent examining the graphs of equations. The word ‘some’ is a relative term. It may take 5, 10, or 50 points until you see the pattern. 18 Relations and Functions 1.2.1 Exercises 1. Graph the following relations.
