Homework Help: calculus

Posted by Jimmy-can someone please help on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at 9:40pm.

given the following function find,

a. zeros and the multiplicity of each
b. number of turning points
c. end behavior

f(x)=(x-1)(x-5)
a. x=1 and x=5--is this correct?

b. number of turning points
I had f(x)-0 BUT my teacher said this--
Note that the equation has a degree of 2. f(x)=x^2-6x+5. How many turning points must an equation have that is of degree two? Is it two points--(1,0)and (5,0)

c. end behavior
I had for a large |x|(positiveor negative) f(x) increases as parabola upward to infinity BUT my teacher said not to change to an absolute value. Can someone help me with this one.
**please show work**
