3. symmetry

A function is even if f(-x) = f(x), that is, if its graph is symmetric with respect to y-axis:

A function is odd if f(-x) = -f(x), that is, if its graph shows rotational symmetry with respect to the origin:


Exercise: study the symmetry of these functions:




Solutions: a) f is an odd function; d) g is neither odd nor even function
