tell if even,odd,or neither 

Aug 30th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

f(-x)=-x^3+x^2-x+1

       =-(x^3-x^2+x-1)


which is not equal to f(x) and -f(x)

hence it is neither odd nor even.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

could you show me how to determine  if its even,or odd  I mean why its not even or odd

Okay.

See if

f(-x)=f(x) than function is even.

If f(-x)=-f(x) than function is odd.

If both theconditions are not satisfied than it is neither.
