Determine algebraically whether each function is even, odd or neither F(x)=2x^2-4x-1
Apr 28th, 2015

Test for even: If even, then F(-x) = F(x)

F(-x) = 2(-x)^2 - 4(-x) - 1 = 2x^2 + 4x -1

therefore, F(-x) does NOT equal F(x) and function is NOT even.

If odd, then F(-x) = -F(x)

But -F(x) = -2x^2 + 4x +1 which does NOT equal F(-x)

Therefore the function is NEITHER
