How do you use end behavior, zeros, y intercepts to sketch the graph of #f(x)=(x-4)(x-1)(x+3)#?
If you were to multiply the three factors using the distributive property, you would find that this function is a third degree polynomial because the term with the dependent variable raised to highest power would be the term
Since the term with the dependent variable raised to the highest power has a positive coefficient
To find the zeros, or x-intercepts, of the function, set
To find the y-intercept of the function, set
