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
