Types of Relations
 Definition: A relation is a set of ordered pairs, typically representing a relationship between two sets.

Types:
 OnetoOne: Each element of the domain maps to a unique element in the range.
 Onto: Every element in the range is mapped by at least one element in the domain.
 ManytoOne: Two or more elements in the domain map to a single element in the range.
 ManytoMany: Elements from the domain can map to multiple elements in the range and vice versa.
Function Notation
 Definition: A function is a special type of relation where each input (from the domain) is associated with exactly one output (in the range).

Notation: Denoted as ( f(x) ), where:
 ( f ) represents the function name.
 ( x ) is the input value from the domain.
 ( f(x) ) is the corresponding output value.
 Example: If ( f(x) = 2x + 3 ), then ( f(2) = 2(2) + 3 = 7 ).
Domain and Range

Domain:
 The set of all possible input values (xvalues) for a function.
 Can be finite or infinite, depending on the function.
 Examples:
 For ( f(x) = \sqrt{x} ), the domain is ( x \geq 0 ).
 For ( f(x) = \frac{1}{x} ), the domain is ( x \neq 0 ).

Range:
 The set of all possible output values (yvalues) that a function can produce.
 Determined by the function's behavior and its domain.
 Examples:
 For ( f(x) = x^2 ), the range is ( y \geq 0 ).
 For ( f(x) = \sin(x) ), the range is ( 1 \leq y \leq 1 ).
Types of Relations
 A relation is defined as a set of ordered pairs representing the relationship between two sets.
 OnetoOne Relation: Each element in the domain is paired with a unique element in the range, ensuring no repetitions.
 Onto Relation: Each element in the range has at least one corresponding element in the domain, allowing for complete mapping.
 ManytoOne Relation: Multiple elements from the domain link to a single element in the range, maintaining a unique output.
 ManytoMany Relation: Elements from the domain can map to several elements in the range and vice versa, allowing for complex interactions.
Function Notation
 A function is a specific type of relation where each input from the domain is tied to exactly one output in the range.
 Function notation is expressed as ( f(x) ):
 ( f ) indicates the function's name.
 ( x ) is the input value chosen from the domain.
 ( f(x) ) denotes the respective output value linked to that input.
 Example: For the function ( f(x) = 2x + 3 ), evaluating at ( x = 2 ) yields ( f(2) = 7 ).
Domain and Range

Domain: Represents the complete set of possible input values (xvalues) for a function.
 The domain can either be finite or infinite based on the type of function applied.
 Example domains:
 For ( f(x) = \sqrt{x} ), the domain includes values where ( x ) is greater than or equal to zero.
 For ( f(x) = \frac{1}{x} ), the domain excludes zero, noted as ( x \neq 0 ).

Range: Comprises all potential output values (yvalues) a function can yield.
 Determined by the function's behavior and the constraints of its domain.
 Example ranges:
 For ( f(x) = x^2 ), the outputs are all nonnegative, specified as ( y \geq 0 ).
 For ( f(x) = \sin(x) ), outputs are limited to values between (1) and (1), inclusive.
