Identify the shape and degree of each graph:

shape shape shape shape

f(x) = 3x+2 f(x) = (x­2) f(x) = x + 1 f(x) = x(x­2) (x+2)2 3 2

Step 1: Find the degree &

determine the shape.

f(x) = (x + 3)(x ­ 4x ­ 5)2

Step 2: Write the function in factored form.

f(x) = (x + 3)(x ­ 5)(x + 1)

f(x) = (x + 3)(x ­ 4x ­ 5)2
