Determine if the functions below are odd, even or neither.
(a) f(x) = x^2 + 2
(b) f(x) = (x^2 + 2)tan(x^2)
(c) f(x) = (x^2 + 2)sin (x)tan(x^2)© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com July 19, 2018, 11:18 pm ad1c9bdddf
To determine wether the function is even or odd, use the following rules:
For an even function, the following is true: f(x) = f(-x)
For an odd function, the following must be true: f(-x) = -f(x)
(a) f(x) = x^2 + 2 ...
This solution illustrates and lists steps involved in determining if a function is odd, even or neither.
