 Question 54494: determine wheather the given function is even, odd, or neither....thanks f(x)=5x^2+x^4Answer by Born2TeachMath(20)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!An even function is one where all of the exponents of x are even numbers. An odd function is one where all of the exponents of x are odd numbers. A function is neither if the exponents of x are both even and odd. And remember that constants (numbers by themselves) are of even power, since 3 = 3*(x^0)!! Therefore, your function: f(x) = 5x^2 + x^4 is an even function, since 2 and 4 are both even (x^2 and x^4).
