Tutoring Algebra at CSUMB, vertical line test and horizontal line test

We looked at functions and inverses of function.

One quick way to see whether something is a function is to do the vertical line test. If a vertical line can ever pass through two points, it’s not a function.

An inverse function switches the x and y values. You can figure out if a function has an inverse that is a function by doing the horizontal line test.

Looked at telling the shape from a few types of equations, especially lines and parabolas.
