Topic of conversation in the math office today:
Is it possible for a function or relation to be both symmetric to the y
axis and to the origin but not to the x-axis?

It has to be one symmetry or all 3, but any pair alone is impossible.

=3D=3D>The only thing I could think of was 3/4 of a circle.
This has none of the above symmetries.
