Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's answer c first. The turning points are where the function changes direction. How many times does it do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. now go back and do A. The least possible degree is 1 more than the number of turning points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the turning points are 2. the degree is 3 and then for b. use thisdw:1441912816258:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the yintercept is where it crosses the yaxis. Just pick the point off the graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the end behavior you can tell from just the degree and the leading coefficient from the graph. The left end is going down so y is approaching ∞ as x gets smaller and the right end is going up so y is approaching ∞ as x gets larger
