y is a function of x if for each independent variable there exists a
unique dependent variable .

y is a function of x if for each x there exists only one y.



Vertical Line Test : If a vertical line intersects the graph of the
relation in more than one point then the relation is not a function.

The graph below shows the (hypothetical) relationship between fuel
economy and speed.

Deepening Understanding:

1. What is the relationship between the x- intercepts and the solutions to the quadratic equation

2. What would you conjecture about the number and type of x-intercepts
for a perfect square trinomial ?
