3)  f(x)  =  -2x2(x - 2)3(x + 4)4(x - 5)

To find the degree:  x2 has degree 2

(x - 2)3 has degree 3

(x + 4)4 has degree 4

(x - 5) has degree 1

adding the degrees together, we get degree 10

To find the end behavior:

right-end: put a large positive number in for each variable

-4:  negative

x2  is positive

(x - 2)3  is positive

(x + 4)4  is positive

(x - 5)  is positive

multiplying these together:  negative   --->  right-end goes downward

left-end:

put a large negative number in for each variable

-4:  negative

x2  is positive

(x - 2)3  is negative

(x + 4)4  is positive

(x - 5)  is negative

multiplying these together:  negative   --->  left-end goes downward

Zeros:  bounces if the exponent is positive; passes through if the exponent is negative

x2 :  bounces at 0

(x - 2)3 : passes through at 2

(x + 4)4 : bounces at -4

(x - 5) : passes through at 5

4)  f(x)  =  3x7 - 48x5

=  3x5(x2 - 16)

=  3x5(x + 4)(x - 4)

and now do the same type of analysis as done in problem 3).
