a. algebraic b. Input Description: a circle centered at the origin with 6 cm radius Input Units: centimeters Output Description: a point between -6 and 6 on a circle Output Units: point c. function d. x (centimeters) ↓ Rule y ↓ y(x) (point)

Work Step by Step

a. The representation is algebraic because the data is given in an equation. b. The input is a 6cm circle and the output is a certain point on that circle, because if you input a number for the circle you will get an exact point. c. The relation is a function because there is only one output for each input. d. draw an input/output diagram of the data.
