Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1f(x) is same as y so it's \[\huge\rm y=x^311x^2+36x36\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and for the shape when the highest degree is odd: if the leading coefficient is positive `Graph falls to the left and rises to the right` if the leading coefficient is negative then `graph rises to the left and falls to the right `

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(x  2) • (x  3) • (x  6)=0 so x2 =0 x3=0 x6=0 now solve for x
