 Question 235398: is the following relation a function? Explain Please. (1,2),(2,3),(2,5),(2,7)Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!is the following relation a function? Explain Please. (1,2),(2,3),(2,5),(2,7) ----------- Points 2, 3 and 4 are colinear, on a straight line x = 2, and fit a simple function. ---------- The first point is not on the line. A function can be found that passes thru all 4 points, but it will be complex, I think 4th order or higher, or a sinusoid. A yes or no answer depends on what level of functions are acceptable.
