Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See if this helps. ODD Functions: Opposite X's and Opposite Y's and symmetrical to the origin. EVEN Functions: Opposite X's nut Equal Y's. In that case even functioms would be symmetrical to the y axis. If you have opposite x's and opposite y's then that means you are symmetrical to the origin. Ex: (5,10) (5,10). With X Axis, your Y values change. Ex: (3,5) (3,5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Try and solve the first one, and ill let you know if you got it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so xy^2=0 will go to (x)y^2=0 so it would be y axis symm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let me ask this first. Do you agree at x^2, it creates a parabla

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The equation ultimately ends up being. X=Y^2. You probabably recognize the opposite of that, Y=X^2. With Y=x^2 the parabla would make a U shape that would mean the ordered pairs would have opposite x's but equal y's or in other words, symmetrical to the y axis.. Now if X is what your trying to find, what must it be symmetrical to?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does any of that make sense to you? Do i need to clarify anything?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea it kind of does! ha but for the x axis you change the y. So from (x,y) to (x,y)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes exactly. Think of the parabola on it's side. Like how Y=x^2 the parabola went through (0,0) and the two pieces curved up on each side of the y axis. In this case, your just flipped on the xaxis, and instead of your x values changing, your y values change, exactly like you mentioned

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so it would be xy^2=0 to x+y^2=0

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. The question you asked, was what would be the symmetry. The symmetry would be over the xaxis. xy^2=0 to x+y^2=0 can lead to 2 separate functions: xy^2=0 ends up being x=y^2. x+y^2=0 ends up being x=y^2. Making the parabola negative negates it, and flips facing the other direction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would 5 be xy^2+10=0 to x(y)^2+10=0 to xy^2+10=0 so it is the x axis? But no I know that it's just I'm showing my work on how.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea! and if the axis is correct

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your axis is correct. It is symmetrical over the xaxis. However im confused with what you typed "xy^2+10=0 to x(y)^2+10=0 to xy^2+10=0".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What I would do personally, is make a table with your x values. and just plug them in and see if they follow any particular rule.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is very sloppy but it proves my point. These numbers aren't real, its just to prove a point. If you were to plug in x=1, you would get y=2. But if you were to also plug in x=1 to the equation, you would get y=2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay yea I see what you are saying! What about the other questions? like idk what to do with the whole sqrt or the fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But do you mean what it converts to?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have the rules out in front of me, i can type it out if you think you may need it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the x axis it changes from (x,y) to (x,y) for the y axis it changes from (x,y) to (x,y) and for origin it changes from (x,y) to (x,y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just clarifying this is the equation: \[y=\sqrt{9}x^2\]

jewlzme17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the sqrt is over the whole equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0um changing x^2 into a positive x^2? I don't know

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite, y is already by itself so all you really need to do is just plug and chug. For example, say you plug in 3 or even 3 for x. you would get \[y=\sqrt{99}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah exactly, plugging in some other numbers would get you decimals. I was just too lazy.
