To be more specific,

1) is y=sqrroot of x a square root function? I'm assuming yes.

2) What about y=x^2? is this a square root function? I understand it is the inverse of y=sqrroot of x. But, would it also be considered a square root function?

**In other words, is this a correct definition of square root functions?:**

"When the output values (y), in each ordered pair of a relation, are the

**SQUARE**of the input values (x).

**OR**When the output values (y), in each ordered pair of a relation, are the

**SQUARE ROOT**of the input values (x).

Do both statements describe a square root function in the definition?
