Term | Definition |

function | In mathematics, a function is a relation between a set of inputs and a set of permissible outputs with the property that each input is related to exactly one output. An example is the function that relates each real number x to its square x2.c |

relation | A relation is a relationship between sets of values. In math, the relation is between the x-values and y-values of ordered pairs. The set of all x-values is called the domain, and the set of all y-values is called the range. |

independent variable | Independent variable definition. An independent variable is a variable that represents a quantity that is being manipulated in an experiment. A dependent variable represents a quantity whose value depends on those manipulations. |

dependent variable | variable whose value depends upon independent variable s. The dependent variable is what is being measured in an experiment or evaluated in a mathematical equation. The dependent variable is sometimes called "the outcome variable." In a simple mathematic |

domain | The set of values of the independent variable(s) for which a function or relation is defined. Typically, this is the set of x-values that give rise to real y-values. Note: Usually domain means domain of definition, but sometimes domain refers to a restric |

range | Image result for range math definitionstudy.com The difference between the lowest and highest values. In {4, 6, 9, 3, 7} the lowest value is 3, and the highest is 9, so the range is 9 − 3 = 6. Range can also mean all the output values of a function. See: |

slope | Definition & Formulas. The slope is a measure of the steepness of a line, or a section of a line, connecting two points. In this lesson, you will use several different formulas for slope and learn how those formulas relate to the steepness of a line. Supp |

y-intercept | In the equation of a straight line (when the equation is written as "y = mx + b"), the slope is the number "m" that is multiplied on the x, and "b" is the y-intercept (that is, the point where the line crosses the vertical y-axis). by google |

linear equation | a first-order equation involving two variables: its graph is a straight line in the Cartesian coordinate system. 2. any equation such that the sum of two solutions is a solution, and a constant multiple of a solution is a solution. Compare linear operator |
