    f (x) = x^3 + x^2 + 3x^0 is neither even nor odd. Why? Because we have a mixture of even and odd powers of x here: x^3 (odd) and x^2 and x^0 (even).

    Even functions: all component functions are even (e. g., x^2 and x^0).

    Odd functions: all component functions are odd (e. g., x^5 and x^3.

    Neither: There's a mixture of even ad odd functions.

    Another way to test for even, odd or neither:

    Even functions: f (-x) = f (x). Changing the sign of the input (x) doesn't change the sign of the output.

    Odd functions: f (-x) = - f (x). Changing the sign of the input changes the sign of the output.
