Questions & Answers
Q: How can even signals be identified graphically?
Even signals can be identified graphically by folding the signal along the yaxis. If both parts of the folded signal overlap, it is an even signal.
Q: Can you provide an example of an even signal in discrete time?
Yes, an example of an even signal in discrete time is a signal where the values for n are the same as the corresponding positive values of n.
Q: How can odd signals be identified graphically?
Odd signals can be identified graphically by folding the signal along both the yaxis and xaxis. If the signal overlaps with itself after both folds, it is an odd signal.
Q: Do odd signals always pass through the origin?
Yes, one important property of odd signals is that they always pass through the origin. This means that the value of the signal is zero when the time is zero.
Summary & Key Takeaways

Signals can be classified as even or odd based on their time reversal properties. An even signal has the same value when timereversed, while an odd signal's timereversed version is negative.

Even signals can be identified by their symmetry about the yaxis, while odd signals pass through the origin.

Any signal can be expressed as a combination of even and odd parts.
