If ƒ(x) is odd, can anything be said of g(x) = ƒ(x) - 2? What if ƒ is even instead? Give reasons for your answer


Expert Answer

Step 1

If f(x) is odd function, then describe g(x) = f(x) -2 and also describe, if f(x) is even.

Step 2


If f(x) is odd, then

g(x) = f(x) -2 should be odd.

Because f(x) is odd function and 2 in even.

Since, subtract even function from odd function given always odd function.
