Even Symmetry

Concept

Even Symmetry

If a function has a symmetry, it is either even or odd. The symmetry is even when the graph is symmetric with respect to the yy-axis.

If a function has even symmetry, the following rule applies: f(-x)=f(x). f(\text{-} x)=f(x). The rule comes from the fact that even symmetry is a reflection across the yy-axis. Therefore, changing the sign of the xx-value does not affect the function value.

The concept applies both ways. Hence, if the rule is true for the entire domain, the function has even symmetry.
