the equation x-6+4y=4 is it a function

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

A definition of a function is a “special relationship where each input has a single output.  It is written

As f(x) , where x is the input value.

For example,

f(x) = x/2  is a function  because each input x has a single output x/2

f(2) = 1

f(16) = 8

f( -10) = -5

Now for the equation

X – 6 + 4y = 4

Simplify:

X + 4y – 6 = 4

X + 4y-6 + 6 = 4 + 6

X + 4y = 10  ; it is not a function because there is two variable or two inputs values.  Each input does not have a single output values.

F( 2) =  2+4y = 10 , not a function

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
