10-24.

Consider the graph of $f(x) =$ sin$(x)$. 10-24 HW eTool (Desmos).

1. Describe the graph.

2. Could this graph be an example of any other function? Explain why $f(x) =$ sin$(x)$ cannot be a polynomial function.

What does the graph of $y =$ cos$(x)$ look like?

Polynomial functions are of the form $P(x) = ax^n + bx^{n − 1} +$ ... $+ fx^1 + gx^0$.
How many roots can a polyhomial function have?
How many roots does the sine function have?

Use the eTool below to examine the graph and to create new graphs.
