#### Answer

$y$ is a function of $x$

#### Work Step by Step

Solve for $y$.
Add $y$ on both sides of the equation to obtain:
$|x|=5+y$
Subtract $5$ on both sides to obtain:
$|x|-5=y$
Note that when you assign any real number value to $x$, the equation will give only one value of $y$.
Thus, the given equation represents $y$ as a function of $x$.
