Math - quick question
posted by Sami on .
in a polynomail function, does the leading coeeficient do anything else than tell you the direction of the graph (i.e. whether it's inverted or not)?
It also affects the rate at which the graph is rising or falling.
e.g. y = 5x^2 + 6x has a greater "slope" than
y = 2x^2 + 6x
I just noticed that you had posted this same question before and it had been answered
You should go back and check on the status of your question that you posted.
Mark down the time you originally posted it, that way it is not hard to find.
