The shape of a roller coaster is modeled by a polynomial function, R(x). Describe how to find the xintercepts 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It doesn't give you an equation, so you can just make up a polynomial if you want. But you can describe how to do it without an equation.
