    Not really a good question. What is the LEAST degree of a polynomial that could generate the data? That woudl be a better question. Let's see... 108-1344 = -1236 -1442-(-126) = -1316 It's not linear. As least 2. Five points, so we KNOW it can be done with a 4th Degree. (Why?) The question is, then, is it 2, 3, or 4? Since it is ONLY decreasing, for increasing 'x', we must conclude 3. (Why?)

    NonResponsive. I ask questions for you to think, not for you to decline to think. Anyway, 1 is definitely not correct.
