Consider the graph of the function below. Which statement about the graph below is incorrect?

1. False, because it is not symmetrical across the y axis.

2. Can't tell, because although it seems like it's false, it could be true if you zoom out enough.

3. True, because the graph goes down and then up at 2 points.

4. Can't tell, because although it seems like it's false, it could be true if you zoom out enough (similar to statement 2).

1 True......a polynomial can have an even degree but not be symmetrical to the y axis (ex : 4x^2 - 3x )

This polynomial has to be of an even degree because both endpoint behaviors are "up"

2 False...the polynomial has an even degree....if the polynomial had a leading negative coefficient, both endpoint behaviors would be "down"

3. True

4 Also True
