Solutions

Chapter 2.1, Problem 2E
To determine

The term which is used for set of all possible inputs and all possible outputs for a function f.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 2E

The set of all possible inputs for a function f is called Domain of f and the set of all possible outputs for a function f is called Range of f.

Explanation of Solution

A function f is a rule that assigns to each element x in set A exactly one element called f(x) , in set B. In other words a function is a relationship between the set of inputs and outputs, where each input is related to exactly one output.

The set of all possible inputs A is called Domain of f.

The set of all possible outputs B is called Range of f.

Thus, the set of all possible inputs for a function f is called Domain of f and the set of all possible outputs for a function f is called Range of f.
