Finding Values and Domains, Average Rate of Change, and Odd/Even Functions

An even function is defined as f(x) = f(-x), and an odd function has -f(x) = f(-x). The domain of a function is the set of input data that keeps the function defined. Determine if the function f(x) = -2x^2 * absolute value(-6x) is even, odd, or neither. Find the average rate of change for the function f(x) = 4/(x+3) between t
