Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes 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.
