Consider  y = f(x) = x As y = x, both x and y take identical values. That is why this function is called an identity function. Both x and y are defined for all real values of x. So domain and range of the identity function is all real value, that is  x  \epsilon  R and  y  \epsilon  R .



Graph of y = f(x) = x

Graph of the identity function, 'f'(x) = x is a straight line passing through the origin and inclined at an angle of 45o ( \pi with X-axis. It is also known as angle bisector of I and III quadrant.
