# How do you decide whether the relation #│2y│ = 4x# defines a function?

This defines x as a single-valued function of y for all values of y.

To determine if the relation │2y│ = 4x defines a function, you need to check if for each value of x, there is only one corresponding value of y.

First, isolate y to express y in terms of x:

If 2y = 4x, then y = 2x. If -2y = 4x, then y = -2x.

So, for every value of x, there are two corresponding values of y: 2x and -2x.

Since there are two possible y-values for some x-values, the relation does not define a function.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
