What is the degree of each polynomial function below? For parts (c) and (d), state the minimum degree.

  1. Look for the highest-valued exponent.

  1. See part (a).

  1. Continuous, curved graph, increasing from bottom left, turning at the following points: summit in second quadrant, valley on x axis at approximate negative 200, then rising, up & right, with x intercepts at negative 7, negative 3, & 2.

    If you shifted the graph vertically, what is the maximum number of -intercepts it could have?

  1. Continuous, curved graph, decreasing from top left, turning at the following points: valley at the point (negative 3, comma 0), summit in second quadrant, valley at the point (negative 1, comma ), then rising & crossing y axis above, y = has 7.

    See part (c).
