Unformatted text preview: x and solving for y . A graph is symmetric to the yaxis if, for every point (x, y) on the graph, the point (x, y) is also on the graph. It is symmetric to the xaxis 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: xaxis yaxis origin (2) Tell whether the given points are on the graph of the equation x 2 + 4y 2 = 4: (0, 1) (2, 0) (2, ½) List the intercepts and test for symmetry: Intercepts Symmetry: does (x, y) = xyxaxis (x,y) yaxis (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...
