(Section 1.3: Basic Graphs and Symmetry) 1.3.10 The term “odd function” comes from the following fact: If fx()=xn, where nis an odd integer, thenfis an odd function. • The graphs of y=x5, y=x7, etc. resemble the graph of y=x3. • In Part C, we saw that the graph of y=xis a line. • We will discuss the cases with negative exponents later. How do these graphs compare? For example, let =x3and gx=x5. Compare the graphs offand g. Based on our experience from Part F, we expect that the graph of
