Solutions

Chapter 1.1, Problem 71E
To determine

To find: Whether the given functionis even, odd, or neither.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 71E

The given function is an even function.

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given function is,

  f(x)=1+3x2x4

Concept used:

The function is said to be odd function if it satisfies f(x)=f(x) for all values of x and the function is said to be even function if it satisfies f(x)=f(x) for all values of x .

The given function is,

  f(x)=1+3x2x4

Calculate the value of f(x) as,

  f(x)=1+3(x)2(x)4f(x)=1+3x2x4f(x)=f(x)

The given function satisfies the condition of an even function. Hence, the given function is an even function.

Consider the graph of the given function as follows,
