f(x)= (x+5)^2(x-1)^2

a) find the x and y intercepts for the polynomial function f

b) determine whether the graph of f crosses or touches the x axis at each x intercept

C) put all information together to obtain the graph of f

**Steve**, Sunday, August 19, 2012 at 2:57pmThe x-intercepts are the roots.

The y-intercept is at 5^2*1^2 = 25

Since the roots are of even order, the graph touches the axis at each root.

So, degree-4 polynomial with positive coefficient. Down from the left, tangent at each root, then back up to the right.
