[latex]f(x)=mx+b\\\\2f(x)=2(mx+b)=2mx+2b\\\\f(2-x)=m(2-x)+b=2m-mx+b\\\\2f(x)-f(2-x)=(2mx+2b)-(2m-mx+b)\\\\=2mx+2b-2m+mx-b=3mx+b-2m\\\\3mx+b-2m=x+2\Rightarrow3m=1\ \wedge\ b-2m=2[/latex] [latex]\left\{\begin{array}{ccc}3m=1&/:3\\b-2m=2\end{array}\right\\\left\{\begin{array}{ccc}m=\frac{1}{3}\\b-2m=2\end{array}\right\\\left\{\begin{array}{ccc}m=\frac{1}{3}\\b-2\cdot\frac{1}{3}=2\end{array}\right\\\left\{\begin{array}{ccc}m=\frac{1}{3}\\b-\frac{2}{3}=2\end{array}\right\\\left\{\begin{array}{ccc}m=\frac{1}{3}\\b=2+\frac{2}{3}\end{array}\right\\\left\{\begin{array}{ccc}m=\frac{1}{3}\\b=2\frac{2}{3}\end{array}\right[/latex] [latex]Answer:f(x)=\frac{1}{3}x+2\frac{2}{3}[/latex]
