A curve with Cartesian equation y=f(x) passes through the origin. Lines drawn parallel to the coordiante axes through and arbitrary poing of the curve form a rectangle with two sides on the axes. The curve divides every such rectangle into two regions A and B, one of which has and area equal to n times the other. Find all such functions f.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Obviously f(x)=cx where c is a real number works, but there must be others. Any ideas?
