Terms in this set (64)
function
A relation in which each element of the domain is paired with exactly one element in the range.
Domain

Solving an open sentence
Finding a replacement value for the variable that results in a true sentence or an ordered pair that results in a true statement when substituted into the equation.
Like terms
Terms that contain the same variables, with corresponding variables having the same exponent.
Equation
A mathematical sentence that contains an equal sign (=).
Inequality
An open sentence that contains the symbol <, <, >, or >.
Variable
