I don't understand how you determine whether a function is even, odd,or neither.
Here are my problems:
Determine whether the given function is even, odd, or neither.
8. f(x)=x^3x^2
This is how I did it.
f(x)=(x^3) (x^2)= (x)(x)(x)  (x)(x) = (x^3) (x^2) I got that it was odd
9. f(x)=4x^5+x^3 This is how I did it:
f(x)=4(x^5) + (x^3)=4x^5x^3  I got that it was neither.

8. Both answers are wrong. The #8 f(x) is neither even nor odd. It is the sum of an even term (x^2) and and odd term (x^3). The #9 f(x) is odd. It is the sum of two odd terms.
