The shape of a roller coaster is modeled by a polynomial function, R(x). Describe how to find the x-intercepts of R(x) and how to construct a rough graph of R(x) so that the engineer can predict when there will be no change in the direction of the coaster. You may create a sample polynomial of degree 3 or higher to use in your explanations.
