Determine whether the function of f(x)=[[x+1]] is odd, even, or neither.
I figured since it's a step function it automatically couldn't have symmetry and therefore is neither.
and doing the whole f(x) thing:
f(x)=[[x+1]]
which is not equal to f(x) or f(x).
so the answer would be neither, right?

I am not certain of your symbols
If you mean f(x)=absolute(x+1) then it is even, with a line of symettry at x=1

it's a greatest integer function (AKA step function)
not absolute value.
