this type of function are solved by plotting there graph,
1. first check value of function at origin
2. then vary points along x direction.
3. the vary points along y direction.
4. take some points in x,y plane
5. then draw a curve passing through all these points, this will give you approximate function.

Setting y = 0 gives f(x) = f(0) for all x. That means f is a constant function. Since f(4)=-4, this means f(x) = -4 for all x.
