    In this case, no. You can rearrange it to be the case, but as given, "X is a function of y"

    Well, no, that's not correct. But again, that's not what the question is actually asking.

    How exactly do you tell is Y is a function of x

    i would guess no because y isnt by itself..correct?

    It's not asking you to FIND y in terms of x, simply to say whether, as given, it is or not. In this case ...it is not. If "y" was "in terms of x" , y would be by itself y = something....

    ...and within that "something", there would be an "x" in there.
