What's the difference between a relation and a solution set?

  1. Sep 10, 2013 #1
    Hi,

    Say y=x2: the solution set is equal to the relation, which is also a set.
    What's the difference between saying "plot the relation y=x2" and "plot the solution set of y=x2"?

    Thanks for help.

    I would always say relation, it is clearer.
