Determine the maximum possible number of turning points for the graph of the fucntion.

How do I graph f(x)=x^54x^312x

your first one is right
for f(x)=x^54x^312x
=x(x^4  4x^2  12)
=x(x^26)(x^2+2)
if this had been the equation
x^54x^312x = 0
there would be solutions of
x=0, x=±√6 = ±2.45, and 2 complex roots
so the graph crosses at 2.45, 0, 2,45
it rises into the first quadrant, and drops into the third quadrants.
The two complex roots cause a "wiggle" in the first quadrant above the xaxis
