It is symmetric to the x-axis if for every point (x, y) the point (x, -y) is also on the graph. It is symmetric to the origin if for every point (x, y) there is also a point (-x, -y). (1) Given the point (4, -2), find the point that is symmetric with respect to the: x-axis y-axis origin (2) Tell whether the given points are on the graph of the equation x 2 + 4y 2 = 4: (0, 1) (2, 0) (2, ) List the intercepts and test for symmetry: Intercepts Symmetry: does (x, y) = x-y-x-axis (x,-y) y-axis (-x, y) origin (-x,-y) 3 y 2 x 4 = 0 4 y = x 3- 8 5 4x 2 + y 2 = 4 6 2 y x =-7 y= -x 2 + 3 8 y = x...
