A relationship is a function only if there is no more than one *y*-value for each *x*-value. Check the *x*-values in both tables to see to find any that appear multiple times. When you find a value for *x* that appears multiple times, check the corresponding *y*-values. If the *y*-values are different, then the relationship is not a function.

Relationship (b) is not a function. When *x* equals 2, *y* can equal 0 or 1.
