Let \(f(x) = ax^7 + bx^3 + cx - 5.\) If \(f(-7) = 7\) then find \(f(7).\)

f(-7)  =   

 

a(-7)^7 + b(-7)^3 + c(-7) - 5  = 7

 

a(-1)^7 * (7)^7   +  b (-1)^3 * (7)^3  + c (-1)(7) - 5  = 7

 

-a(7)^7  - b (7)^3  - c (7) - 5   =  7

 

- ( a(7)^7 + b (7)^3 + c(7)  )   = 12

 

a(7)^7 + b(7)^3 + c(7)  =  -12

 

So

 

a(7)^7 + b(7)^3 + c(7)  - 5   =  -12 - 5

 

f (7)   =   -17
