QUESTION

# How do you determine if f(x)= x^3 + 1 is an even or odd function?

neither

To determine if a function is even/odd consider the following.

• If f(x) = f( -x) , then f(x) is even

Even functions have about the y-axis.

• If f( -x) = - f(x) , then f(x) is odd

Odd functions have symmetry about the origin.

Test for even

f(-x)=(-x)^3+1=-x^3+1 ≠f(x)

Since f(x) ≠ f( -x) , then f(x) is not even.

Test for odd

-f(x)=-(x^3+1)=-x^3-1≠f(-x)

Since f( -x) ≠ - f(x) , then f(x) is not odd.
