# Math Help - Symmetry of Functions

1. ## Symmetry of Functions

Test algebraically whether the graph of
6x + 7y = 0 is symmetric with respect to the x-axis, y-axis and the origin.

Must I isolate y first?

I believe that would be the best thing to do here.

You will get $y=\dots$

Then test for symmetry by evaluating $f\left(-x\right)$

I will isolate y and then follow the usual steps.
