    i am having the same trouble too. i think if the x points are different, the its a function. but if not, then its not a function.

    seeking for help also :)

    By definition, it is a function.

    Have you learned about the Vertical Line Test?

    Here is a short video that explains it.
    Too bad that the guy is sort of dry in his explanation.
