Q12

Joshua was sketching the graph of the functions f(x) and g(x). He lost part of his notes, including the equations for the functions. Given the partial information below, sketch each function.

The domain of `f`

is `\mathbb{R}`

.

```
\displaystyle
\lim_{x\to \infty} f(x) = -\infty
```

and
```
\displaystyle
\lim_{x\to -\infty} f(x) = -\infty
```

The y-intercept is 2. The x-intercepts are -1, 3, and 5. There is a local extrema at x = 3.

Q13a

Joshua was sketching the graph of the functions f(x) and g(x). He lost part of his notes, including the equations for the functions. Given the partial information below, sketch each function.

The polynomial function g has domain `\mathbb{R}`

.

```
\displaystyle
\lim_{x\to -\infty} g(x) = \infty
```

`g`

is an odd function.

There are five x-intercepts, two of which are 4 and -22. The function passes through
`( 1, 5)`

, which is close to a local extremum.
