Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2are you able to draw a vertical line anywhere such that it crosses the purple curve more than once?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if each value of x has only ONE corresponding value of y then it IS a function (this is another way of looking at @jim_thompson5910 's answer)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if you've understood the definition, and are happy with your answer  then go with it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3what don't you understand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3hmmm  that's a LOT to explain in a simple text box. read my definition again: if each value of x has only ONE corresponding value of y then it IS a function what do oyu not understand about that (btw it IS either yes or no  so you're almost there)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if you take ANY point on the x axis  can you find just ONE value for y on the graph?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as if that is on the graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3look at the graph you were given (the wavy line) go along the x axis and choose ANY point you like. is there just one point on the wavy line that corresponds to the value on the x axis?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3can you tell me the point on the x axis that you have chosen where there is more than 1 value on the wavy line?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3dw:1443830272353:dw each point htat you drew is the only point corresponding to the value on the x axis. It seems to me that you don't have th ebackground knowledge to answer this question. You need to revise your learning on graphs and how to read them, and THEN look at the definition of a function I gave above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3If I tell you YES or NO you will still not have any understanding of WHY that it the answer  so the answer is useless to you
