To determine if a function is even or odd, follow these simple steps:

## Step-by-Step Guide

**Even Function Test**: Replace (f(x)) with (f(-x)). If (f(-x)=f(x)), the function is even. [Example: (f(x)=x^2)]**Odd Function Test**: Replace (f(x)) with (f(-x)). If (f(-x)=-f(x)), the function is odd. [Example: (f(x)=x^3)]**Neither Even nor Odd**: If the function fails both tests, it is neither even nor odd. Verify by inspecting the symmetry around the y-axis for even, and origin for odd functions.
