## What is an image in mathematical terms?

In mathematics, the image of a function is the set of all output values it may produce. More generally, evaluating a given function at each element of a given subset of its domain produces a set, called the “image of under (or through) “.

Numbers, functions, triangles, matrices, groups and more complicated things such as vector spaces and infinite series are all examples of mathematical objects.

**How does mathematics relate to real life?**

Mathematics makes our life orderly and prevents chaos. Certain qualities that are nurtured by mathematics are the power of reasoning, creativity, abstract or spatial thinking, critical thinking, problem-solving ability, and even effective communication skills.

**How would you describe what it means to do mathematics?**

Mathematics is the solving of numerical problems using specific rules and laws. Certain methods are applied to solve equations and obtain an answer which is either definitely right or wrong. Richard. Mathematics is a discipline which uses one’s cognitive abilities to solve numerical arguments.

### What is the image of a figure?

Figures are any images that you include in your document, i.e. illustrations, diagrams, graphs, photographs, images of artworks and etc. Whenever you include a figure in your document, you also provide a caption.

### Are there mathematical objects?

Commonly encountered mathematical objects include numbers, sets, functions, expressions, geometric shapes, transformations of other mathematical objects, and spaces. Mathematical objects can be very complex; for example, theorems, proofs, and even theories are considered as mathematical objects in proof theory.

**How many things are in mathematics?**

There are 5 main branches of mathematics, i.e. Algebra, Number Theory, Arithmetic and Geometry.

**What does doing math look like?**

“Doing math” involves all kinds of mental capacities: numerical reasoning, quantitative reasoning, linguistic reasoning, symbolic reasoning, spatial reasoning, logical reasoning, diagrammatic reasoning, reasoning about causality, the ability to handle abstractions, and maybe some others I have overlooked.

#### What is a math reflection?

A reflection is a transformation representing a flip of a figure. Figures may be reflected in a point, a line, or a plane. When reflecting a figure in a line or in a point, the image is congruent to the preimage. The fixed line is called the line of reflection.
