## How can you determine the end behavior of a polynomial function?

To determine its end behavior, look at the leading term of the polynomial function. Because the power of the leading term is the highest, that term will grow significantly faster than the other terms as x gets very large or very small, so its behavior will dominate the graph.

### How would you describe the end behavior of the graph?

The end behavior of a function f describes the behavior of the graph of the function at the “ends” of the x-axis. In other words, the end behavior of a function describes the trend of the graph if we look to the right end of the x-axis (as x approaches +∞ ) and to the left end of the x-axis (as x approaches −∞ ).

#### How will you describe the graph of polynomial function if the degree is odd number and the leading coefficient is positive?

If the degree of a polynomial f(x) is even and the leading coefficient is positive, then f(x) → ∞ as x → ±∞. If f(x) is an odd degree polynomial with positive leading coefficient, then f(x) →-∞ as x →-∞ and f(x) →∞ as x → ∞.

**How do you describe the graph of a polynomial function?**

The graph of a polynomial function will touch the x-axis at zeros with even multiplicities. The graph will cross the x-axis at zeros with odd multiplicities. The sum of the multiplicities is the degree of the polynomial function.

**How can you determine if the left end behavior of a polynomial function is rising or falling?**

Use the Leading Coefficient Test to determine the end behavior of the graph of the polynomial function f(x)=−x3+5x . Solution: Because the degree is odd and the leading coefficient is negative, the graph rises to the left and falls to the right as shown in the figure.

#### How do you determine left and right end behavior?

A trick to determine end graphing behavior to the left is to remember that “Odd” = “Opposite.” If the degree is odd, the end behavior of the graph for the left will be the opposite of the right-hand behavior.

## How do you find the end behavior of a rational function?

Determining the End Behavior of a Rational Function Step 1: Look at the degrees of the numerator and denominator. If the degree of the denominator is larger than the degree of the numerator, there is a horizontal asymptote of y=0 , which is the end behavior of the function.

#### How to determine the end behavior?

Investigation: End behavior of monomials. Monomial functions are polynomials of the form , where is a real number and is…

**How to write end behavior?**

The end behavior, according to the above two markers: If the degree is even and the leading coefficient is positive, the function will go to positive infinity as x goes to either positive or negative infinity. We write this as f (x) → +∞, as x → −∞ and f (x) → +∞, as x → +∞.

**How do you find the end behavior of a graph?**

A positive cubic enters the graph at the bottom, down on the left, and exits the graph at the top, up on the right. Since the leading coefficient of this odd-degree polynomial is positive, then its end-behavior is going to mimic that of a positive cubic.

## How to find the end behavior of a function?

To predict the end-behavior of a polynomial function, first check whether the function is odd-degree or even-degree function and whether the leading coefficient is positive or negative. Find the end behavior of the function x 4 − 4 x 3 + 3 x + 25. The degree of the function is even and the leading coefficient is positive.
