Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y=f(x)=1+(1/x)+(1/x^2) Check for f(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or if numbers are more your type does f(2) = f(2)? or does f(2) = f(2)??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If @amistre64 1st condition gets proved its Even,If the 2nd condition gets proved its Odd,If your question does not satisfy the above conditions,Then its neither even nor odd.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or by analysis \[1+(1/x)+(1/x^2)=\frac{x^2+x+1}{x^2}\] these work like + rules; even/even=even i believe

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but then again, the top is not even since it is shifted from the y axis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In some case if the power turns out to be even then the function is even,if the power is odd then the answer is odd. The trigonometric values also : sin (–x) = –sin x cos (–x) = cos x tan (–x) = –tan x csc (–x) = –csc x sec (–x) = sec x cot (–x) = –cot x
