Sketch the graphs of each of the following polynomial functions. Be sure to label the - and -intercepts.


    Determine the -intercepts using the Zero Product Property.

    Use your graphing calculator to check your graph.


    This is a cubic function, but there are only two -intercepts because on of the factors in squared. This factor creates a double root.
