Ray and Kelsey are working to graph a thirddegree polynomial function that represents the first pattern in the coaster plan. Ray says the thirddegree polynomial has 4 intercepts. Kelsey argues the function can have as many as 3 zeros only. Is there a way for the both of them to be correct? Explain your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Kelsey has a list of possible functions. Pick one of the g(x) functions below and then describe to Kelsey the key features of g(x), including the end behavior, yintercept, and zeros. g(x) = x^3 − x^2 − 4x + 4 g(x) = x^3 + 2x^2 − 9x − 18 g(x) = x^3 − 3x^2 − 4x + 12 g(x) = x^3 + 2x^2 − 25x − 50 g(x) = 2x^3 + 14x^2 − 2x − 14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The first g(x), as x goes to infinity g(x) will be infinity. As x goes to negative infinity, g(x) will go to negative infinity. Y intercept would be 4.
