Find the x- and y-intercepts.

(b) Determine the end behavior: find the power function that the graph of f resembles for large values of |x|.

(c) Find the maximum number of turning points.

(d) Graph the function

Please show all of your work.

f(x)=-(x-1)(x+1)^3

x-intercepts: (-1,0) and (1,0)

end behavior: y decreases forever; approaches y = -x^4

Turning points: f is of degree 4, so a max of 3 turning points

In fact, it only has one at x = 1/2
