Warm Up:
1.
 
In Geogebra, graph
n
 y x
where
n
 
takes on various counting numbers (1, 2, 3, …).
 
Generally, the graph looks like…
 for
even
 
n
values.
This is because…
 for
large
 
 positive
x-values, the output is: POS / NEGfor
large negative
x-values, the output is: POS / NEG
Generally, the graph looks like…
 for
odd 
 
n
values.
This is because…
 for
large
 
 positive
x-values, the output is: POS / NEGfor
large negative
x-values, the output is: POS / NEG2.
 
(a)
Without
graphing, list
everything
you can tell me about the graph of 
(2 5)( 2)( 3)
 y x x x
.
 
 2(b) Depending on what you listed above, you may have answered some of these. For
(2 5)( 2)( 3)
 y x x x
 What is the
degree
? What is the name for a polynomial with that degree?What is the
leading coefficient? 
What is
leading term
?For large positive x-values, the output is: POS / NEGFor large negative x-values, the output is: POS / NEGWhat is/are the x-intercepts?What is/are the y-intercepts?(c) When
2.45
 x
, the term
2 5
 x
is [+ or -], the term
2
 x
is [+ or -], and
3
 x
is [+ or -].Thus, when
2.45
 x
, the output of the function is [+ or -](d) When
2.55
 x
, the term
2 5
 x
is [+ or -], the term
2
 x
is [+ or -], and
3
 x
is [+ or -].Thus, when
2.55
 x
, the output of the function is [+ or -](e) When
3
 x
, the term
2 5
 x
is [+ or -], the term
2
 x
is [+ or -], and
3
 x
is [+ or -].Thus, when
3
 x
, the output of the function is [+ or -](f) Draw a numberline below and label the x-intercepts on the number line. Then for x-values where the outputis positive, put a + sign above the numberline at that value. And for x-values where the output is negative, put a
 –
sign below the numberline at that value. What you are doing is constructing a
sign analysis
.(g) Now use your calculator to graph this polynomial using the window [-4,3]x[-34,15]. There is one valley andone peak. Use your calculator to identify the valley (a.k.a. relative minimum) and the peak (a.k.a. relativemaximum).valley: ___________________ peak: ____________________

This problem is unrelated to problem #2. I used my calculator and found the following table of values for apolynomial I have been working with:
 x
-2.50 -1.75 1.20
 y
 27.5 -10.09 -14.98Explain whether the following two statements are
definitely 
 
true
,
 possibly true
, or
definitely false
.STATEMENT 1: There is an x-intercept somewhere on the interval [-2.50, -
1.75]. (This means: “There is an x
-intercepts between
2.50
 x
and
1.75
 x
.
)STATEMENT 2: There is an x-intercept somewhere on the interval [-
1.75, 1.20]. (This means: “There is an x
-intercepts between
1.75
 x
and
1.20
 x
.
)4.
 
Draw a quick sketch of a
linear equation
with the following things:Exactly three x-intercepts: Exactly two x-intercepts: Exactly one x-intercept: No x-intercepts:
