(Section 1.3: Basic Graphs and Symmetry)
1.3.7
How can we quickly get the other half of the picture? Exploit symmetry!
f
and
g
are both
even
functions, so their graphs are
symmetric about
the
y
axis
.
• Observe that
±

is our third intersection point.

In calculus
, you might find the area of one or both of those tiny regions
