Was hoping someone could tell me or point me to a resource that could tell me about the image of a function. I've read and reread the definition in my book, but it's just not getting through at this time.

    If there is an input \(x\) such that \(f(x)=y\), then \(y\) is in the image of \(f\). The image is all possible \(y\) when putting in every possible \(x\).

    The image is always a subset of the co-domain. It's sort of like the range, however "range" is an ambiguous term which can mean the image or the co-domain.
