POLQ 3 | Lesson 3 | Practice (Polynomial Characteristics)

 

The table below has a list of polynomial functions. Determine the following:

a) Degree of the function

b) Whether the leading coefficient is positive or negative

c) Rises or falls to the left

d) Rises or falls to the right

Function Degree Leading Coefficient Left Side Behavior Right Side Behavior
\(f(x)=x^2\)
\(f(x)=-x^2+7\)
\(f(x)=2x^3-4\)
\(f(x)=-4x^5\)
\(f(x)=2x^4-9\)
\(f(x)=-x^6\)
