- Math HW help for a friend.

- Relevant Equations:
- Symmetry with respects to the y-axis and origin.

My friend asked for help with this precalculus question. I could not help him. So, I decided to post here.

Find a and b when the graph of

y = ax^2 + bx^3 is symmetric with respect to (a) the y-axis and (b) the origin. (There are many correct answers.)

I don't even know where to begin.
