## TOPIC 1: RELATIONS ~ MATHEMATICS FORM 3

Normally relation deals with matching of elements from the first set called

DOMAIN with the element of the second set called RANGE.

**Relations**

A relation “R” is the rule that connects or links the elements of one set with the elements of the other set.

Some examples of relations are listed below:

- “Is a brother of “
- “Is a sister of “
- “Is a husband of “
- “Is equal to “
- “Is greater than “
- “Is less than “

Normally

relations between two sets are indicated by an arrow coming from one

element of the first set going to the element of the other set.

element of the first set going to the element of the other set.

Relations Between Two Sets

Find relations between two sets

The relation can be denoted as:

R = {(a, b): a is an element of the first set, b is an element of the second set}

Consider the following table

This

is the relation which can be written as a set of ordered pairs {(-3,

-6), (0.5, 1), (1, 2), (2, 4), (5, 10), (6, 12)}. The table shows that

the relation satisfies the equation y=2x. The relation R defining the

set of all ordered pairs (x, y) such that y = 2x can be written

symbolically as:

set of all ordered pairs (x, y) such that y = 2x can be written

symbolically as:

Exercise 3

Test Yourself:

**Quiz.**

**Domain and Range of a Relation**

The Domain of Relation

State the domain of relation

**Domain**:

The domain of a function is the set of all possible input values (often

the “x” variable), which produce a valid output from a particular

function. It is the set of all real numbers for which a function is

mathematically defined.

The Range of a Relation

State the range of a relation

**Range**:

The range is the set of all possible output values (usually the

variable y, or sometimes expressed as f(x)), which result from using a

particular function.

If

R is the relation on two sets A and B such that set A is an independent

set while B is the dependent set, then set A is the Domain while B is

the Co-domain or Range.

R is the relation on two sets A and B such that set A is an independent

set while B is the dependent set, then set A is the Domain while B is

the Co-domain or Range.

B and each member of set B must be an image of at least one element in

set A.

Y ={2, 4, 6, 8}

Draw the pictorial diagram to illustrate the relation “is less than or equal to‘ and state its domain and range

**Inequalities:**

The equations involving the signs < , ≤, > or ³ are called inequalities

Eg. x<3 x is less than 3

x>3 x is greater than 3

x≤ 2 x is less or equal to 2

x³ 2 x is greater or equal to 2

x > y x is greater or than y etc

Inequalities can be shown on a number line as in the following

Inequalities involving two variables:

If

the inequality involves two variables it is treated as an equation and

its graph is drawn in such a way that a dotted line is used for > and

< signs while normal lines are used for those involving ≤ and ≥.

**Inverse of a Relation**

The Inverse of a Relation Pictorially

Explain the Inverse of a relation pictorially

If there is a relation between two sets A and B interchanging A and B gives the inverse of the relation.

If R is the relation, then its inverse is denoted by R

^{-1}- If the relation is shown by an arrow diagram then reversing the direction of the arrow gives its inverse
- If the relation is given by ordered pair ( x, y) , then inter changing

the variables gives inverse of the relation, that is (y,x) is the

inverse of the relation. So domain of R = Range of R -1 and range of R =

domain of R^{-1}

Example 13

The inverse of this relation is “ is a multiple of “

**:**y = 2x }After interchanging the variable x and y, the equation

y = 2x becomes x = 2y

Use the

**horizontal line test**to determine if a function has an*inverse function*.If

ANY horizontal line intersects your original function in ONLY ONE

location, your function has an inverse which is also a function.

ANY horizontal line intersects your original function in ONLY ONE

location, your function has an inverse which is also a function.

The function

*y*= 3*x*+ 2, shown at the right, HAS an*inverse function*because it passes the horizontal line test.

I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at

the same time as other folks think about issues that they

plainly don’t realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as

well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a

signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks asmr 0mniartist
