True or False: the function f(x)=3x^3+x^2+2x rises as x grows very small. I don't really even understand what is being asked here.

    What happens to f(x) as x gets smaller?

    You're basically just doing a limit as x approaches zero

    I know that as x gets closer to 0, so does y

    So f(x) decreases as x decreases
