Consider P(x) = x4(x  2)3(x + 1)2. For each zero, determine if the graph crosses the xaxis. How do you know?
A)The behavior of the graph at 0 cannot be determined. The graph crosses the xaxis at 1 and 2 because the degree of the polynomial is even.
B)The zeros at 0 and 1 do not cross the xaxis because they have even multiplicity. The zero at 2 crosses the xaxis because it has odd multiplicity.
C)The zeros at 0 and 1 cross the xaxis because they have even multiplicity. The zero at 2 does not cross the xaxis because it has odd multiplicity.
D)The zeros at 0 and 1 do not cross
