can you please help me understand relations and functions.
Like how to figure out if an equation is a function or not a funcion.
for example:
1) 3x+2y=6,
2) x=y^2+2
and
3) y=square root of 1x
thank you

drwls,
The equation in 1, after rearranging, can be considered y as a function of x or x as a function of y.
2. expresses x as a function of y and
3. expresses y as a function of x.
I would say that they are all functions, but your teacher may have other ideas.
