Solutions

Chapter 2.5, Problem 81E
To determine

To state : whether the function f(x)=1x3 is even, odd or neither.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 81E

The function f(x)=1x3 is neither.

Explanation of Solution

Given information :

The function is f(x)=1x3

The function f is even if f(x)=f(x) for all x in the domain of f .

The function f is odd if f(x)=f(x) for all x in the domain of f .

  f(x)=f(x)=1x3f(x)=1(x)3f(x)f(x) and f(x)f(x)

since, f(x)f(x) and f(x)f(x) we conclude that f(x)=1x3 neither even nor odd function.
