Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1depends on the y value it is associated with.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it isn't a function? or is it because in the ycolumn there are repeats as well but i thought it didn't matter on the ycolumn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a function is defined so that each x value is associated with only one y value. if x=3, when y=7 .... then everytime x=3, it better have a y=7 associated with it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you have 2 or more values for y, when x=3 ... then its not going to be a function.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just doublechecking. if x=1.5 and y=3.5 and for the other x=1.5 and y=1.5 then it is definitely NOT a function, correct?
