A function f is even if for every number x in its domain the number -x is also in the domain and f(x) = f(-x). A function is even if and only if its graph is symmetric with respect to the y -axis. A function f is odd if for every number x in its domain the number -x is also in the domain and - f(x) = f(-x). A function is odd if and only if its graph is symmetric with respect to the origin.
Example of an Even Function. It is symmetric about the y-axis x y (0,0) x y (0,0) Example of an Odd Function. It is symmetric about the origin
