  • algebra -

    If for every x, there is one and only one value of y, we have a function

    in your c)
    I see 1 --->3
    and 1 ----> 7
    oops, contradiction!
    same is true for a and b
    mmmmhhh, look carefully at D

  • algebra -

    in b, x=1, y=2 or 3 not a function
    in c, x=1, y=3 or 7, not a function
    In a, x=5, y can be two values. not a function
    in d. each x has a related unique y.
