It will behave like $y=3x^4$.

Work Step by Step

When considering behavior at infinity, we consider the highest degree of x in the function, for at infinity, the lower degrees of x will be negligible compared to the larger degrees of x. Thus, because the term with the highest degree is $3x^4$, we know that the function will behave like $3x^4$.
