The Basic Language of Functions b. Input a number x, the output is the largest integer less than or equal to x. Is this a function? This is a function. Its called the greatest integer function and it’s denoted as [x]. A function is a procedure that assigns each input exactly one output.

- 82. The Basic Language of Functions The equation x = y 2 , treating x as the input, is not a function. For instance, for the input x = 4, there are two output y’s that satisfy 4 = y 2 , namely y = 2 and y = –2. So x = y 2 is not a function. Plot the graph by the table shown. x = y 2 x 0 1 1 4 4 y 0 1 -1 2 -2 x 0 1 1 4 4 y 0 1 -1 2 -2

For instance, for the input x = 4, there are two output y’s that satisfy 4 = y 2 , namely y = 2 and y = –2. So x = y 2 is not a function. Plot the graph by the table shown. In particular that if we draw the vertical line x = 4, x = y 2 it intersects the graph at two points (4, 2) and (4, –2). x 0 1 1 4 4 y 0 1 -1 2 -2 x 0 1 1 4 4 y 0 1 -1 2 -2

For instance, for the input x = 4, there are two output y’s that satisfy 4 = y 2 , namely y = 2 and y = –2. So x = y 2 is not a function. Plot the graph by the table shown. In particular that if we draw the vertical line x = 4, x = y 2 it intersects the graph at two points (4, 2) and (4, –2). In general if any vertical line crosses a graph at two or more points then the graph does not represent any function. x 0 1 1 4 4 y 0 1 -1 2 -2 x 0 1 1 4 4 y 0 1 -1 2 -2
- 85. The Basic Language of Functions Since for functions each input x has exactly one output, therefore each vertical line can only intersect it’s graph at exactly one location (e.g. y = x + 1).

- 87. The Basic Language of Functions Since for functions each input x has exactly one output, therefore each vertical line can only intersect it’s graph at exactly one location (e.g. y = x + 1). y = x + 1 However, if any vertical line intersects a graph at two or more points, i.e. there are two or more outputs y associated to one input x (eg. x = y 2 ),
- 88. The Basic Language of Functions Since for functions each input x has exactly one output, therefore each vertical line can only intersect it’s graph at exactly one location (e.g. y = x + 1). y = x + 1 However, if any vertical line intersects a graph at two or more points, i.e. there are two or more outputs y associated to one input x (eg. x = y 2 ), then the graph must not be the graph of a function.
