Question 202603
<font face="Garamond" size="+2">

The high order term is *[tex \Large -x^5].  Clearly, as the magnitude of *[tex \Large x] gets larger, this term will take over and the other terms won't matter that much.  Any time you raise a negative number to an odd power, the result is negative, and since the coefficient is negative, the overall result for negative values of *[tex \Large x] is that the high-order term will be positive.  So the graph clearly rises on the left.  Likewise, for positive values of *[tex \Large x] the value of *[tex \Large x^5] will be positive and the negative coefficient makes the value of that term negative, hence the graph will fall on the right.
