How would you sketch a graph that is an even degree function, but is not an even function?

    what does that even mean? (x-5)^2 = y

    an even function is an even degree; but perhaps you are talking about rational expressions?

    does y = x^2 have an even degree?

    y = x^2 is an even degree :)

    y = x^2 + x is of degree 2, so it is even, but y is not an even function

    or do we mean even function as in "spins around the y axis"?

    why are you trying to sketch this thing? What math class are you in?

    was your last question a comment or a statement?

    an even degree implies f(-x) = f(x), or reflects across the y axis

    i'm sorry an even funciton

    so you can have even degreed functions even, or not.. ie y = x^2 vs y = (x-2)^2 which is not centered at the origin

    an even degree is y = x ^2n where n is an integer

    (x-a)^2n involves a translation of a units to the right

    (x-a)^2n + b involves the same a translation, with a vertical translation b units (up)
