Real World Function

My real world function is the simple shape toys that children play with. For every specific hole on the box there is only one shape that would be able to fit through. This is an example a function, a function is a relation that says that for every x value (domain) there is a specific y value (range). In this toy you can't put another shape into a hole that doesn't belong to that specific shape,for example you can't fit a triangle into a hole made specifically for a circle, this is a relation, a relation is an ordered pair (x,y) that doesn't have anything specific.
