Is it possible to solve and explain this question in a different way? I am working on an online mathematics Helper web site and I need solutions in different ways. This is not a homework or any kind of exam as I already have a solution of these questions. I just need different ways of solutions so that I can write different algorithms on those solutions and then call them in software coding randomly.

there's not really anything else to explain this example.

given some input (from the domain) to a function, the function must return exactly one output (in the range)

Since your table has one value (8) returning 2 values (4 & 6)  that table can't be describing a function.

The answer is simply applying the definition of a function.

maybe it would help you to think of it in normal "function" syntax rather than as a table.

f(4)  = 2
f(12) = 3

but

f(8) =6
f(8)=4

therefore f is not a function, because a function can't return 2 answers for one input.

Can you explain or a link little bit more about what is domain input and what exactly the range is?

domain - the set of values a function can operate on

range - the set of values a function can return

Thanks. I think its a called parameters when we use these term in methods or functions in any programming language.

a parameter is a single value taken from the domain to be used in a function.

for example  I might have a function that operates on positive integers.

So f(10)  would be a legal function call.  10 is the parameter, not the domain.

the domain is the positive integers.
