12. The name we use for a set of ordered pairs is a ___. | relation |

13. We often use the notation (x,y) to name a set of ordered pairs. The set containing all of the x's is called the ___. | domain |

14. We often use the notation (x,y) to name a set of ordered pairs. The set containing all of the y's is called the ___. | range |

15. A relation between two sets so that each member of the first set goes with exactly one member of the second set is called a ___. | function |

16. A function is a ___ between ___ ____ so that each member of the ___ corresponds to ___ ___ member of the ___. | relation, two sets, domain, exactly one, range |

17. We can determine whether a graph is that of a function by applying the Vertical Line Test. The graph is that of a function if ___. | every vertical line crosses the graph at most once |
