Unformatted text preview: found in this step to complete the rest of the steps. f ( x ) = ( x a )( x + b )( x c ). . . 5. Determine whether or not the graph passes through each xintercept. For each factor ( x c ) k of the function f : œ If k is even , the graph will intersect but not cross the xaxis at ( c , 0). œ If k is odd , the graph will cross the xaxis at ( c , 0). 6. Make a Tchart with more points. f Choose values for x that lie closely to the right and left of each xintercept on the number line. f Substitute values for x into the factored form of the function, not the expanded form found in step 1. f Pay attention to signs when you are simplifying. x y 7. Sketch the graph. Your graph should be a smooth, continuous curve that contains at most ( n 1) turning points . Do not include any sharp corners or unnecessary humps....
