Note that polynomials are the sums of power functions (which makes a power function also a polynomial).

Note that if the degree of the polynomial is Odd: Even: The leading coefﬁcient also has an effect. The macro effect is only determined by the sign: What do an odd and even graphs look like if the leading coefﬁcient is negative? So in the short run, a large leading coefﬁcient will make the graph grow fast, but in the long run, the growth is determined by: m at =33:- “‘“=="':‘1€« 2:} 2, =32 ~ 22532:“ Ugh—212m 53-2 2 2:4 w 2 02’sz 9227321253” “Mums (i?)
