Homework Help: Algebra 2

Posted by Kim on Wednesday, November 18, 2009 at 10:28am.

If you have an arbitrary polynomial P(x) of the níth degree in x, and you graph the equation y = P(x), describe the overall shape of this graph. What happens when x gets large in the positive and negative directions, and how many peaks and valleys does the graph have? How many times does the graph cross the x-axis? (To simplify, let the sign of the highest power term in P(x) be positive.) Hint: See chapter 11 of the text.
