  1. the leading term has the greatest exponent ... 5 in this case
    ... you should use the "caret" symbol (^) for exponentiation

    5 is odd, so the behavior at the positive and negative ends of the graph are opposite

    a large negative x value causes the function to have a large positive value
    ... this is due to the negative coefficient of the 1st term

    the opposite can be said of a large positive x value

    3= down and up
    4= there are two turning points
    5= x=0,x=2,x=-3 (Meets at 8 on top)
    Enjoyy!! Merry x-mas!!🎄

    h(x) = -7x I was thinking that this was not a polynomial function because -7x is just one term making it a monomial but the answer key says it is a polynomial function. Could someone explain why that is so? Thanks :D
