A function is a relation which relates the elements of two sets (of numbers) such that any element of the first set is related to exactly one element of the second set.
f: A->B is a function which relates elements of set A to elements of set B.
If we define f by (1,4),(2,6),(3,5), then the relation f is a function, since it satisfies the stipulation that any element in A is related to exactly one element in B.
On the other hand,
if we define:
g : A-> B such that
then g is not a function because element 1 of set A is related to two elements of B (4 and 6). So in this case, g is not a function.
3. The two lines are not parallel, so they intersect somewhere in space.
They are not parallel because the slopes are different (8 and -3).
