Polynomial graphs

Sketch graphs of each of the following polynomial functions. Be sure to label the x- and they-intercepts of each graph.
\(\displaystyle{a}.{y}={x}{\left({2}{x}+{3}\right)}{\left({2}{x}-{5}\right)}{b}.{y}={\left({11}-{2}{x}\right)}^{{{2}}}{\left({x}-{2}\right)}\)

a) Identify the parameters a, k, d, and c in the polynomial function
\(\displaystyle{y}={\frac{{{1}}}{{{3}}}}{\left[-{2}{\left({x}+{3}\right)}\right]}^{{{4}}}-{1}\)
. Describe how each parameter transforms the base function
\(\displaystyle{y}={x}^{{{4}}}\)
. b) State the domain and range, the vertex, and the equation of the axis of symmetry of the transformed function. c) Describe two possible orders in which the transformations can be applied to the graph of
\(\displaystyle{y}={x}^{{{4}}}\)
to produce the graph of
\(\displaystyle{y}={\frac{{{1}}}{{{3}}}}{\left[-{2}{\left({x}+{3}\right)}\right]}^{{{4}}}-{1}\)
. d) Sketch graphs of the base function and the transformed function on the same set of axes.

In calculus, it can be shown that the arctangent function can be approximated by the polynomial
\(\displaystyle{\arctan{{x}}}\approx{x}-\frac{{x}^{{{3}}}}{{3}}+\frac{{x}^{{{5}}}}{{5}}-\frac{{x}^{{{7}}}}{{7}}\)
where x is in radians. Use a graphing utility to graph the arctangent function and its polynomial approximation in the same viewing window. How do the graphs compare?
