    Hyperbolic Sine Function

    The hyperbolic sin function, designated by sinh x, is
    sinh x = (1/2) (e^x - e^(-x)).

    Show that f(x) = sinh x is an odd function.

    An odd function satisfies f(x)=-f(-x), that's all you need to solve your problem, show your work.

    Are you saying for me to replace x with -x in the given function and simplify?
