is the function of
f(x)=x^24x
even, odd, or neither?
oh and on what intervals is the function of
f(x)=x+1+x1
increasing?

precalculus 
Reiny,
for the first one, why not graph the parabola ?
hint: it has xintercepts of (0,) and (4,0)
now check in your textbook or notebook what it says about even and odd functions in relation to their graphs.
for the second, I suggest you make a table of values, graph it, and draw your conclusion from that.
