Hi there! Im having problem with this question,
can you give me hint in how to solve this

If the relationship of functions f(1/x) + f(1-x) = x
Where x is not equal to 0,
determine the function f(x)

Thanks ;-)

A recent online discussion of this question (link) suggests that any solution will require tools well beyond algebra.

In what context were you assigned this homework question? Thank you.
