## Precalculus (6th Edition) Blitzer

To graph a polynomial function, include the following steps: 1. Use the Leading Coefficient Test with the polynomial's degree $n$ to determine the end behavior. 2. Test symmetry by evaluating $f(-x)$ 3. Find the x-intercepts by solving $f(x)=0$ 4. Find the y-intercept by evaluating $y=f(0)$ 5. Find the maximum number of turning points $n-1$ 6. Use test points before connecting the coordinates based on the above information.
