All whole numbers  [ there is a possibility that nothing is purchased ]

f(x)  =  -2x^4  + 3x^2

If we just have even powers on a function [ and posssibly, a constant term ] it will always be even

Proof...if even  f(x)  =  f(-x)

f(-x)  =  - 2(-x)^4 + 3(-x)^2   =   -2x^4 + 3x^2  = f(x)   Feb 13, 2018
