Okay I know the definition of a Vector and of a scalar.... but I am getting a little confused for some reason.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Wolfram.com gives this definition of a scalar function:

A function [itex]f(x_1,x_2,...,x_n)[/itex] of one or more variables whose range is one-dimensional,as compared to a vector function, whose range is three-dimensional (or,in general, n-dimensional).

So if what if n=1 then is the vector function really a scalar function?

I know this is a stupid question, but if I can answer it, I may or may not have to ask a series of even more stupid questions.
