For which of the following functions f is f(x) = f(1-x) for all x?

1) 1-x

2) 1-x^2

3) x^2 - (1-x)^2

4) x^2 (1-x)^2

5) x/(1-x)

I'm not sure how to solve.


The answer is


f(x) = (x^2) (1-x)^2

The following are all the answer choices.

1) 1-x

2) 1-x^2

3) x^2 - (1-x)^2

4) x^2 (1-x)^2

5) x/(1-x)

x^2(1-x)^2=(1-x)^2(1-(1-x)^2, <-- look at this (1-x)^2(1-1+x)^2=(1-x)^2(x)^2

What you need to do for this type of question is to replace x with 1-x. And other people already showed you how to do that.
