I know what an ODD and EVEN function are, but I can't seem to figure out a problem on my study guide for my math exam.
question: If f is ODD and f(4) = 3 and f(7) = 30 name for points on the graph of f.
question 2: do question 1 again, replacing ODD with "EVEN"
if anyone could help me figure out these questions, that'd be really great. thanks!

First it should be find FOUR points on the graph. ODD: f(x)=f(x). Do f(4)=3 and f(7)=30. Four points: (4,3), (4,3), (7,30), & (7,30).
You do the even case.

ODD function: f(x) = f(x) symmetric w/ respect to the Origin
example: x + 2x + 5
Even Function: f(x) = f(x) symmetric w/ respect to the yaxis
example: x + 5x + 1
so yeah, i do know what odd and even functions are...do you want to know their end behaviors too?...and sorry about the couple of spelling errors, i was in a rush and probably getting sleepy at the time I posted.

Apparently you may know the definitions of odd and even functions, but you have not the foggiest notion how to apply them. Neither example that you gave is odd nor even

If a function is odd, then f(x) = f(x); for example, f(x) = x: f(3) = f(3) = 27. If a function is even, then f(x) = f(x); for example, g(x) = x: g(2) = g(2) = 4.
If the function is odd with points (4,3) and (7,30) on its graph, the points (4,3) and (7,30) will also be on its graph.
If the function is even with points (4,3) and (7,30) on its graph, then (4,3) and (7,30) will also be on its graph
