f(x)  =  -2x^4  +  3x^2

 

If even, then    f(x)  =  f(-x)

 

f(-x)  =  -2(-x)^4  + 3(-x)^2   =   -2x^4  + 3x^2   =   f(x)    ⇒   even

 

 

 

 

f(x)   =  7

f(x)  = x^2 + 2x  - 8

 

Set these equal

 

x^2 + 2x  - 8  = 7   subtract 7 from both sides

 

x^2 + 2x  - 15  =  0        factor

 

(x + 5) ( x - 3)  =  0

 

Set each factor to 0

 

x +  5  =  0              x -  3   =  0

 

x  = -5                   x   =  3
