What is the vertical shift?

2. Find the following for the function f(x) = (x + 6)^2 (x - 4)^2

(a) Find the x-and y-intercepts of the polynomial function f.

(b) Determine whether the graph of f crosses or touches the x-axis at each x-intercept

(c) Put all the information together to obtain the graph of f.

The x-intercept(s) is (are)?

The y-intercept of f is?

Does the graph cross or touch the x-axis at the smaller x-intercept?
