Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I am confused because: g(x) = x^53x^2+1, a <0 makes the graph of choice 3 g (x) = x^33x^2+1, a>0 makes the graph of choice 3 f (x) = x^43x^2+1, a>0 makes the graph of choice 1 f (x) = x^63x^2+1, a<0 makes the graph of choice 1 Choices 1 and 3 look like it would go to + infinity Choices 2 and 4 look like it would go to  infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so let's look at graph 1... it looks like from what you said above you know you must have an even degree polynomial correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok great so we have the options g(x)=ax^4 where a>0 or g(x)=ax^6 where a<0 as are only options

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you know what g(x)=x^4 and g(x)=x^6 look like?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I graphed it where does the g(x)=x^6 come from the  sign?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm going to call them something different... g(x)=x^4 and f(x)=x^6  g(100)=100^4 <a really really big positive number where as f(100)=100^6 <a really really big negative number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh I see > greater than which is + and < less than which is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep and I just chose 1 and 1 because they are the prettiest negative and positive numbers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1f(x)=1x^4 and g(x)=1x^6 look at graphs 1 and 4... which graph would be closer to something like f(x)=1x^4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1like just look at the end behavior or look at what f(100)=100^4 this means when you plug in a really large positive x value you are going to get a really ridiculous large positive output y value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1graph 4 says well if I plug in a really big positive x value I'm going to get a really big negative y output

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got it now from top to bottom would be 2 1 4 3 the  in front of the x's was where I was making a mistake.
