### finding the function? trig problem

find the function :
d) f(-x)
equation : 2x+1/3x-5
answer: 2x-1/3x-5

second equation:
e) -f(x)
equation : 2x+1/3x-5
answer: -2x-1/3x-5

I ONLY NEED THE WORK !

Your answer to "d" is incorrect: the answer is $\frac {-2x+1} {-3x-5}$
What f(-x) means is wherever you see an "x" in the original equation put (-x) and then simplify.

Your answer to "e" is correct.
What -f(x) means is that you muliply the enitre equation by -1 and then simplify: like this $-1(\frac {2x+1} {3x-5})$

I will let you do the work.

-- by the way, this isn't a trig problem.
