Graphs of Functions

A relation f from a set A to set B is said to be a function if every element of set A has one and only one image in set B.
Vertical line test is used to determine if a relation is a function or not. A relation is a function if vertical lines intersect the graph only at one point.
Let A and B be two non-empty sets. Then, a function ‘f’ from set A to set B is a rule or a method that associates the elements of set A with the elements of set B such that:
1. All the elements of set A are associated with the elements of set B.
2. An element of set A is associated with a unique element in set B.
Graphs are the geometrical visualisation of functions. Therefore, they help us to understand the domain, range and other information about the function.
Graph of a real function ‘f’, denoted by G (f) is the set of all ordered pairs {x, f(x)} of real numbers where x belongs to the domain of f.
