What is a Function?

?

A function is a special type of mapping such that each member of the domain is mapped to one, and only one, element in the range.DOMAINThe DOMAIN is the set of ALLOWED INPUTS TO A FUNCTION.RANGEThe RANGE is the set of POSSIBLE OUTPUTS FROM A FUNCTION

A function is a special type of mapping such that each member of the domain is mapped to one, and only one, element in the range.Only a one-to-one or a many-to-one

mapping can be called a function.

A function is a special type of mapping such that each member of the domain is mapped to one, and only one, element in the range.BUT THERE’S MORE TO CONSIDER

KNOW ALL!!

FOR A FUNCTION TO EXIST:The DOMAIN MUST BE DEFINED- Or values which can NOT be in the DOMAIN MUST BE IDENTIFIED

Consider the MAPPING 1yx

The MAPPING becomes a FUNCTION when we define the DOMAIN 1( ) 0f x x

x

The DOMAIN MAY BE DEFINED- to make a mapping become a function

1y x

( ) 1 1f x x x …-

The set of values in the DOMAIN can also be written in INTERVAL NOTATION 1,

I KNEW THAT

INTERVAL/SET NOTATION

R Is a symbol standing for theSET OF REAL NUMBERS

xRMeans that x “is a member of” theSET OF REAL NUMBERS

Finding the RANGE of a function

The RANGE of a ONE TO ONE FUNCTION will depend on the DOMAIN.

The RANGE of a function can be visualised as the projection onto the y axis

Find the RANGE of the function defined as

2( ) -1 1f x x x

The RANGE of the function:

INTERVAL NOTATION

2( ) -1 > 2f x x x

The set of values in the domain written in INTERVAL NOTATION is 2,

The RANGE of a MANY TO ONE FUNCTION willNeed careful consideration.

The set of values in the RANGE written in INTERVAL NOTATION is

What if you have no graph to LOOK AT?Then you would need to identify any STATIONARY POINTS of the graph

Minimum point with coordinate(0,-1)

Take care finding the range of a Many to one Function

The function is ONE TO ONE on the given DOMAIN so

1(bit bigger than 2)(bigger than 2)-2
