Explicit vs Implicit

Explicit: Explicit: A function defined in terms of one variable. y= 3x + 2 is defined in terms of x only. Implicit: Implicit: A function defined in terms of two or more variables. y 2 + 2xy + 3x 2 = 12 is defined in terms of x and y. You can’t solve the equation for either x or y only.

Identify each function as either explicit or implicit. Polling question: 1.2
