does the graph represent a function? yea or no

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    no

    Step-by-step explanation:

    It is not because it does not pass the vertical line test.

    ****************************************************************

    This is the vertical line test:

    Imagine a vertical line that starts at the left side of the graph, at x = -8, and is moving right to x = 8. If at any time in the vertical line's movement from left to right, it intersects more than 1 point of the relation simultaneously, then the relation is not a function.

    ******************************************************************

    Here, when the vertical line is x = -7, the vertical line intersects points (-7, 4) and (-7, 6) simultaneously. That means this relation does not pass the vertical line test, and it is not a function.
