**Reiny**, Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 9:39pmlet me rewrite k(x)

k(x) = 5(x^3) + 5(1/x^3) - x/1 - 1/x

it should be intuitively obvious that

k(x) = k(1/x)

**krista**, Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 9:41pmyea i realize that but the question says "show" that they equal each other. im thinking possibly by some sort of identity or something.

**Reiny**, Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 9:45pmsub 1/x for x

k(1/x) = 5(1/x^3) + 5/(1/x^3) - 1/x - 1/(1/x)

= 5/x^3 + 5x^3 - 1/x - x

= the original k(x) , just the order of writing down the terms has changed.
