The graph of a function ) ( x f is the set of points ( x , y ) whose x coordinates are in the domain of f and whose y coordinates are are given by ). ( x f y = • Vertical line test First, does the graph represent a function? To answer this, you will need to use the vertical line test (VLT) . The Vertical Line Test: A graph in the xy plane is the graph of a function if and only if no vertical line intersects the graph more than one time. Example 1: Determine if the graph represents a function: Example 2: Determine if the graph represents a function: Math 1310 Class Notes – Section 3.2, Page 2 of 7 Example 3: Determine if the graph represents a function: • Finding information from a graph of an equation You can also state the domain and range of a function, given its graph, and you can find function values at various values of x . You can also find the value of...
