is that everything there is to this question?
yeah which is why I am confused because the choices are either 1, 2, 3, 4
I'm guessing they're asking you for a degree of the polynomial you get when you plot the points. Looks like a parabola to me
what does the 1, 2, 3 or 4 mean?
I think those are the degrees they want you to choose from.
like if the points made a line the polynomial would be linear and degree would be 1. A parabola like shape could be any even degree, but the smallest would be 2.
ok I see let me graph it and I will see what it looks like
that's what I got
that's way I got, so what degree would you say that is?
So you said a parabola is a even degree so that would leave 2 or 4 but how do you know which one is it?
because they asked for the minimum degree
oh I see so the minimum would be 2
Ok thank you :)
