Unformatted text preview: 50 CHAPTER 1 FUNCTIONS AND MODELS 3. (a) An even function f satisﬁes f(~:£) = f(m) for every number x in its domain. It is symmetric with respect to the y—axis. (b) An odd function 9 satisﬁes g(—a:) = —g(m) for every number x in its domain. It is symmetric with respect to the origin. 4. A function f is called increasing on an interval I if f(a:1) < f(\$2) whenever 301 < :02 in I. 5. A mathematical model is a mathematical description (often by means of a function or an equation) of a real-world phenomenon. 6. (a) Linear function: f(m) : 230 + 1, f(a:) : aw + b 7.
