Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to graph polynomial function , firstly i will find the point which intersect xaxis. the point that intersect xaxis has y=0 to find that, 0=x^2 (x+1)(x1) the values of x which fulfill the equation are x=0, x=1, x=1 secondy, find the extreme point. use the derivative of the function \[f \prime x =4x ^{3}2x ^{}=0\] so x=1/2 and 1/2 then plug those value of x to the function to get the extreme value of y you'll get y = 1/16 so you'll have some points : (0,0) , (1,0) , (1,0) (1/2, 1/16), (1/2, 1/16) finally just connect that points so now you have the graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry, the value of y extreme is not 1/16 . it's 1/16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the extreme points is (1/2, 1/16) and (1/2, 1/16)
