1. f(-x) = 3 x^2 + 1 = f(x)
so it is even, symmetric about y axis
it is a parabola with vertex at (0,1) and opening up
Not symmetric about x axis or origin

f(-x)= f(x) = (-x)^2 + y^2 = x^2 + y^2
also symmetric about origin (x^2+y^2) = distance from origin^2 = 9^ 2 = constant
It is a circle with radius 9 and center at origin

How would you determine whether |y|= x^3 is symmetric with respect to the x-axis, y-axis, both, or neither. In my book it said to plug in (a,b) and to get an equation to compare the other ones to. So I got |b|= a^3. Then I plugged
