Dr. Collier summons you over to his table. He wants to demonstrate the graph of a fourth-degree polynomial function, but the batteries in his graphing calculator have run out of juice. Explain to Dr. Collier how to create a rough sketch of a graph of a fourth-degree polynomial function.

    ...and what a horrible place this world would be if we did only those thing we already knew how to do. What does y = x^4 look like? What does y = x^4 + 1 look like? What does y = x^4 - 3x look like?

    I think you need a little calculus... that may help.... and knowing the difference between P(x) = -x^4........ and P(x) = x^4..... its a question with a lot to consider
