a function in math is most commonly used in graphing and the definition of a function is any equation that when graphed will not have 2 points on the same vertical line. the test for these is known as the vertical line test. functions include parabolas (y=x2, sine curves (y+sin(x)), lines (y=x), and polynomials (x3-4x2+9x) some things that are not functions would be circles (y=y2-x2) or side ways parabolas (x=y2).

Ans. A function is a relation in which each element of the 1st set,it corresponds to one and only one element in the 2nd set.

For every input there must be only one output for it to be a function What if there was more than one output to an input is it still then a function?

No, it is not. A function can only have one output per input. (If it has more than one, it is still maths, but it cannot be called a "function". It would probably be called an equation or a formula etc...).
