a) f(x)=1-x
b) f(x)=1-x^2
c) f(x)=x^2-(1-x)^2
d) f(x)=x^2(1-x)^2
e) f(x)=x/(1-x)

D.

Set x=2, so f(2) = f(-1)
A) f(2) = -1, f(-1) = 2
B) f(2) = -3, f(-1) = 0
C) f(2) = 4-1=3, f(-1) = 1-4=-3
D) f(2) = 4, f(-1) = 4
E) f(2) = -2, f(-1) = -1/2

got it after looking at how people did the previous post on functions (thanks for that):

f(x)=f(1-x)

plug in "1-x" in for each function and set the two equal to each other.

a) 1-x = 1-(1-x); not true
b) 1-x^2=1-(1-x)^2; not true
c) x^2-(1-x)^2=(x-2)^2-(1-(1-x))^2; not true
d) x^2(1-x)^2=(x-1)^2(1-(1-x))2; true
e) x/(1-x)=(x-1)/(1-(1-x)); not true

answer D.
