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
