    5. For parts (a) through (d), what is the lowest degree each function can have?

Your graph should have five x-intercepts.

Draw a graph with no x-intercepts. But, when it is shifted down it should have four x-intercepts.

Draw a graph with three x-intercepts that when shifted vertically would have five x-intercepts.

The degree needs to be at least as high as the number of solutions.
