Functions. A function is a relationship in which each input has only one output. In the relation y is a function of x, because for each input x (1, 2, 3 or 0) there is only one output y. x is not a function of y, because input y = 3 has different outputs: x = 1 and x = 2.
One function defines a variable in terms of another. The set y is a function of x (denoted by y = y (x)), which means that y varies according to the value of x. It probably also depends on how many recreational activities you participate in, how much sleep you need and how crazy you are.

A relation of a set X to a set Y is called a function if every element of X refers to exactly one element of Y. That is, if there is an element x of X there is only one element of Y to which x is related. It is a function because each element of X is related to a single element of Y.
