An input value and its corresponding output value make an ordered pair. Analyze each set of ordered pairs rendered in these pdf worksheets and state whether each relation is a function.
Examine the inputs (x-coordinates) and outputs (y-coordinates) keenly. The criterion for a relation to be a function is that each input should have only one output. Also, x-coordinates shouldn't be duplicated.
Inspect the graph to see if any vertical line drawn would intersect the curve more than once. If it does, the graph does not represent a function, else it does. This batch of printable worksheets is ideal for grade 8 and high school.
When a relation is denoted as an equation, the dependent variable y is expressed in terms of x, the independent variable. For a relation to be a function, there should be one y-value for any x-value inserted.
