So, an even function \(f\) is a function where for all \(x\), \(f(x) = f(-x)\). The square function and the absolute-value functions are pretty cool examples.

You just answered the question, “explain algebraically why it is even”. Look back at the definition.

If f(-a)=f(a) then it is even example f(x)=x^2 f(-x)=(-x)^2 f(-x)=x^2 therfore, f(x)=f(-x) @parth explained it well :)

Let me do that for an absolute-value function too! So we define the absolute value function as follows\[f(x) = \cases{x \ \ \text{iff} \ \ x >0 \\ -x \ \ \text{iff} \ \ x < 0 }\]It is clear that \(f(-x)=f(x)=x\), hence an even function.
