Which of the following describes the function x4 − 3? The degree of the function is even, so the ends of the graph continue in opposite directions. Because the leading coefficient is positive, the left side of the graph continues down the coordinate plane and the right side continues upward. The degree of the function is even, so the ends of the graph continue in the same direction. Because the leading coefficient is negative, the left side of the graph continues down the coordinate plane and the right side also continues downward. The degree of the function is even, so the ends of the grap

    Graph your function and look at the ends. Which of these does it match?|dw:1441212941208:dw|

    you're welcome fyi, you really don't have to graph these. You can just look at the equation once you know the 4 graphs I put up. the highest exponent/degree is even (4) and the leading coefficient is positive (1) so both ends go up
