Graphs of functions !!

I need to determine if these are odd or even?

1. f(x)=x^5-x

2. f(x)=5

3.f(x)=x^4+2x^3

odd if f(-x) = -f(x)

even if all powers are even

odd if all powers are odd

remember that 0 is an even power

Sorry I'm still kind of lost..

**Steve**, Wednesday, August 29, 2012 at 2:38pmcome on. can't tell even and odd numbers?!?!?

x^5-x = x^5 - x^1

5 and 1 are both odd, so f(x) is odd

5 = 5x^0

0 is an even power, so f(x) is even

x^4 + 2x^3

4 is even, 3 is odd, so f(x) is neither even nor odd.
