### About Domain and Range:

When working with relations and functions, we will sometimes be asked to find the domain and range of a relation or function from its equation or its graph. If we want to find the domain, we will inspect our equation and ask the question: what is allowed as a replacement for our independent variable x? For the range, we will think about the possible outputs or y-values, given the possible x-values.

Test Objectives
• Demonstrate the ability to find the domain and range of a relation or function from a graph
