Business requirements

Business requirements define the business problems to be solved or the business opportunities to
be addressed by the software product. In general, the set of business requirements define why the software
product is being developed. Business requirements are typically stated in terms of the objectives of the
customer or organization requesting the development of the software.

Business requirements

Business requirements are what must be delivered to provide value. Products, systems, software, and processes are the ways how to deliver, satisfy, or meet the business requirements whats. Consequently, the topic of business requirements often arises in the context of developing or procuring software or other system; but business requirements exist much more broadly. That is, 'business' can be at work or personal, for profit or non-profit.

Functional requirement

a functional requirement defines a function of a system or its component. A function is described as a set of inputs, the behavior, and outputs (see also software). Functional requirements may be calculations, technical details, data manipulation and processing and other specific functionality that define what a system is supposed to accomplish. Behavioral requirements describing all the cases where the system uses the functional requirements are captured in use cases.

Non-functional requirement

non-functional requirement is a requirement that specifies criteria that can be used to judge the operation of a system, rather than specific behaviors. This should be contrasted with functional requirements that define specific behavior or functions. The plan for implementing functional requirements is detailed in the system design. The plan for implementing non-functional requirements is detailed in the system architecture.

nice sharing Zahra Rana....

Thanks So Much Zara for giving Idea solution .

What is a Business Requirement?

Business requirements are statements of what a system should do rather than how it should do it. They are instructions describing the functions the system should provide and the characteristics the solution should have. They answer the question: “what does the business want to do?” Small to medium sized businesses typically buy solutions from the market, because development of one off systems is too expensive. Developing business requirements is a disciplined way to differentiate between the products on offer

solution of the assignment, 

is it correct?
