The definition of a function as a set of ordered pairs in which no two ordered pairs that have the same first coordinate have different second coordinates implies that any vertical line intersects the graph of a function at no more than one point. This is known as the vertical line test. The Vertical Line Test for Functions A graph is the graph of a function if and only if no vertical line intersects the graph at more than one point. EXAMPLE 6 » Apply the Vertical Line Test State whether the graph is the graph of a function.

The axes intersect at the point ͑0, 0͒, called the origin. 12, the axes are labeled such that positive numbers appear to the right of the origin on the x-axis and above the origin on the y-axis. The four regions formed by the axes are called quadrants and are numbered counterclockwise. This two-dimensional coordinate system is referred to as a Cartesian coordinate system in honor of René Descartes. 12 x 16 Chapter 1 Functions and Graphs take note The notation (a, b) was used earlier to denote an interval on a one- To plot a point P͑a, b͒ means to draw a dot at its location in the coordinate plane.
