Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do i tell if it goes up or down?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well if they just told you "double root at 4" there are infinitely many possibilities. There isn't enough info to determine if the "parabola" opens up or down. We also can't determine the degree or shape

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2btw I'm putting "parabola" in quotes because they aren't true parabolas for polynomials of degree 3 or higher. But they look like parabolas
