    there will be 3 multiples of 3 so there will be a bounce off on it

    my graph is horrible but try graph that equation it'll give a hint how it is. the function is even since its the degree of 4 so makes an upside down parabola somewhat like it

    Yes I know it is even!!! but I got y=48 which was confusing

    yeah your math is fine. y intercept does equal 48.

    Because you found the x-ints and the y-int and the highest degree of the polynomial which means you know the other degrees as well...

    My graph doesnt go all the way to 48 so Idk what to do,, that was tripping me out I was getting scared

    oh. the ticks don't have to be to scale. your x can be in one set and your y in another. it just means the graph will be a little squished vertically. just label your ticks properly and scale the graph accordingly
