A graph is said to be symmetric with respect to the x -axis if, for every point ( x , y ) on the graph, the point ( x , -y ) is also on the graph. If a graph is symmetric with respect to the x -axis and the point (3, 5) is on the graph, then (3, -5) is also on the graph.
Example Example 2 y x =

A graph is said to be symmetric with respect to the y -axis if, for every point ( x , y ) on the graph, the point (- x , y ) is also on the graph. If a graph is symmetric with respect to the y -axis and the point (3, 5) is on the graph then (-3, 5) is also on the graph.

A graph is said to be symmetric with respect to the origin if, for every point ( x , y ) on the graph, the point (- x , - y ) is also on the graph. If a graph is symmetric with respect to the origin and the point (3, 5) is on the graph then (-3, -5) is also on the graph.
Example Example 3 x y =
