So in this arrow diagram example, the function G is defined as C --> D with the sets represented below:

C = {1, 2, 3, 4} and D = {a, b, c, d}

Elements, **1, 2, 3,** and **4** from set C all correspond to element **C** from set D.

So is the domain: { 1, 2, 3, 4} and codomain: { a, b, c, d} ?


Also, does G (1) simply mean: G(1) = C?

What about, G(2), G (3), and G (4)?

Would the correct solution be

G (2) = C

G (3) = C

G (4) = C

Or is there a fancier way of writing this in discrete math? Neither youtube nor the textbook covers any examples for my second portion of the question.

Seems correct to me. The domain and codomain are correct (but note that the range would be {c} and not the whole set)

Small error. It'll be c and not C. C is the name of the set, while c is an element. Writing G(1) = C is incorrect. Writing G(1) = c, however, is correct. Otherwise yes, as all elements from C map to c in D, any input into the function from set C will only yield c as the output, as you have shown
