Answer:
no
Stepbystep 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.
