Let's answer c first. The turning points are where the function changes direction. How many times does it do that?

twice?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes. now go back and do A. The least possible degree is 1 more than the number of turning points
anonymous
  • anonymous
awesome :D okay, so does it make it 2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the turning points are 2. the degree is 3 and then for b. use this|dw:1441912816258:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay :) so then that would be Odd Degree, Negative coeff?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes the leading coefficient is negative
anonymous

awesome! :D this is helpful can you help me with the last two?

the y-intercept is where it crosses the y-axis. Just pick the point off the graph
anonymous

and e?

Thank you Peachpi :) I'll just put something for E :D

the 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
