Chapter 3 - Polynomial and Rational Functions - Exercise Set 3.2: 18

Answer

D.

Work Step by Step

$f(x)=-x^{3}-x^{2}+5x-3$ The degree of the function $f$ is 3, which is odd. The leading coefficient is -1. So function $f$ has an odd degree and a negative leading coefficient, meaning this graph rises to the left and falls to the right.
