The textbook says it's a way of transforming a set of numbers into another set that preserves the order. But I don't understand what that means.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here are a few examples. The question was: do these functions represent a monotonic transformation.

u = 2v - 13 (yes)

u = -1/v^{2}(no)

u = ln(v) (yes)

u = v^{2}(no)

I have no clue what you're supposed to look for.
