    if every (x) has 1 (y) then (y) is a function of (x)

    now if every (x) has 2 (y) s then (y) is not a function of (x) (x) is a function of (y)

    S0fw0N is waiting for you to give the real answer. So he/she just explained how it works!

    You need to see if the formula is injective.

    (if you plot the function, there must be just one y for each x, but there can be two or more x for an y value)

    in plain english, for any ONE x value, will you have only ONE y value?

    Yes for example if at (2,4). The point (2,7) would not make it a function because it does not pass the vertical line test.
