Report an issue Q. What could be the equation for this graph?
y = -2x+ 1x + 3
y = (x - 2)(x + 1)(x + 3)
y = (x + 2)(x - 1)(x - 3)
y = -2x2 + 1x + 3
• Question 7

Report an issue Q. Which equation MOST LIKELY matches the graph?
y = x- x3 + 3x2 + 2
y = -x4 + x3 + 5x + 2
y = x3 - 2x2 + 1x + 3
y = -x3 - 2x2 + 1x + 3

Q. Which standard form function matches the factored form:
y = (x + 1)(x - 3)
y = x2 + x - 3
y = x - 2
y = x2 - 2x - 2
y = x2 - 2x - 3
• Question 9

Q. Which standard form function matches the factored form:
y = (x + 1)(x - 1)(x + 4)
y = x3 - x2 - 4x
y = x3 + 4x2 - x - 4
y = x3 - 4x2 + x + 4
y = x3 + x2 - x - 4

Report an issue Q. Find the standard form of the function graphed here:
y = x4 + 4
y = x4 - 3x3 + 4
y = x4 - 5x2 + 4

Report an issue Q. Find the factored form of the function graphed:
y = -(x + 1)(x - 1)(x - 2)
y= (x + 1)2(2 - x)
