Polynomial graphs
ANSWERED ### Copy and complete the anticipation guide in your notes. StatementThe quadratic formula can only be used when solving a quadratic equation.Cubic equations always have three real roots.The graph of a cubic function always passes through all four quadrants.The graphs of all polynomial functions must pass through at least two quadrants.The expression $$x^2>4$$ is only true if x>2.If you know the instantaneous rates of change for a function at x = 2 and x = 3, you can predict fairly well what the function looks like in between.
