Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[f(x)=5x^38x\] so \[f(x)=5(x)^38(x)\] .. can you simplify this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3good, so you found \[f(x)=5x^3+8x\] if we now factor out the negative sign\[f(x)=(5x^38x)\] We have the negative of the original function\[f(x)=f(x)\] This is the definition of an odd function.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if we had gotten\[f(x) = f(x)\], (after simplification), it would have been an even function
