The process given in Example 1.3.5 for determining whether an equation of a relation represents \( y\) as a function of \( x\) breaks down if we cannot solve the equation for \( y\) in terms of \( x\). However, that does not prevent us from proving that an equation fails to represent \( y\) as a function of \( x\). What we really need is two points with the same \( x\)coordinate and different \( y\)coordinates which both satisfy the equation so that the graph of the relation would fail the Vertical Line Test 1.1. Discuss with your classmates how you might find such points for the relations given in Exercises 50  53.

Exercise \(\PageIndex{76}\):
We have through our examples tried to convince you that, in general, \( f(a + b)\ \neq\ f(a)\ +\ f(b)\). It has been our experience that students refuse to believe us so we'll try again with a different approach. With the help of your classmates, find a function \( f\) for which the following properties are always true.
Exercise \(\PageIndex{A}\):
\( f(0)\ =\ f(1\ +\ 1)\ =\ f(1)\ +\ f(1)\)

Did you find an attribute common to those functions that did succeed? You should have, because there is only one extremely special family of functions that actually works here. Thus we return to our previous statement, in general, \( f(a\ +\ b)\ \neq\ f(a)\ +\ f(b)\).
