Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's actually making alot of sense. So far, all my answers are correct in the back of the book, so now I want to make sure i'm getting the others right. I didn't understand the entire concept until now so its coming together quite well thanks to you. I'm going to submit in here what I have so far, so maybe you could tell me if it looks right if you would be so kind.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=4x^2 To solve for the xaxis, I have y=4x^2 I cannot do anything else with this equation and since it is not the original equation, I am saying there is no xaxis symmetry.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To solve for yaxis, I have y=(4x) (4x) y=4x^2 Original Equation makes it yaxis symmetric

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To solve the origin (replacing withx, y), I have y=(4x) (4x) y=4x^2 Origin YES........ I sure hope i'm doing this a bit better...what do you think?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Really? That is awesome. I sure have been studying hard considering this isn't even my work. I passed Algebra in 2002 in college with a 100%; however apparently after all those years you forget alot. Its pretty neat though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes its true but when you learned something and forget through some time you remember this very fast

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im not so sure that I got the origin right though. Aren't I replacing x,y with (x,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no let's see for example y=x^3 xaxis is y=x^3 yaxis is y=(x)^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So original equation is y=4x^2 For the origin, shouldn't I be replacing the x,y with (x, y)? Making it: y=(4x) (4x) y=4x^2 Making the origin not symmetric right?
