    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.
