    Hint - its a reflection in one of the axes

    if f(x) = 4 g(x) becomes -4

    so its a 50/50 chance of x or y ............ (y i think)

    - its the 'y value' that becomes negative

    ok so f would reflect over the y axis...... just to make sure

    f(x) = x^4 looks something like |dw:1436730857921:dw|

    when x = 0 x^4 = 0 so it passes through the origin

    on which axis are the y (f(x)) values written?

    so it would reflect off the x axis then since it passes though the origin |dw:1436730941121:dw|
