1. ## domination ??

When a variable varies, can I use 'domination' for its variation?

For example suppose that 1<x<3. So can I say:
domination of x is 2 (because 3 minus 1).
Is domination is a good word here? or I need a better word?

No, "domination" doesn't work here. Perhaps you're confusing it with "denomination" - which still doesn't work anyway, but it's closer.

If 1< x< 3, than x = 2 can be an "instantiation" of x. That is, in this instance, x= 2. x is instantiated as 2.

Perhaps domain?

Yes, the domain of a variable is the set of values that a variable can take, so I think you're probably right. I should have thought of that.

The domain is only 2 in this case if we are talking about integers.
