a. |
The leading coefficient is -2 and the degree is 3. This indicates the function is a cubic that extends from Quadrant II to Quadrant IV. As the *x*-values decrease, the graph tends towards positive infinity. As the *x*-values increase, the graph tends toward negative infinity. |

b. |
The leading coefficient is -4 and the degree is 1. This indicates the function is a linear that extends from Quadrant II to Quadrant IV. As the *x*-values decrease, the graph tends towards positive infinity. As the *x*-values increase, the graph tends towards negative infinity. |

c. |
The leading coefficient is and the degree is 2. This indicates the function is a quadratic that extends from Quadrant III to Quadrant IV. As the *x*-values decrease, the graph tends towards negative infinity. As the *x*-values increase, the graph tends towards negative infinity. |

d. |
This curve indicates the function is a cubic that extends from Quadrant III to Quadrant I. This means it must have a positive leading coefficient and degree 3. As the *x*-values decrease, the graph tends towards negative infinity. As the *x*-values increase, the graph tends towards positive infinity. |

e. |
This curve indicates the function is a quadratic that extends from Quadrant II to Quadrant I. This means it must have a positive leading coefficient and degree 2. As the *x*-values decrease, the graph tends towards positive infinity. As the *x*-values increase, the graph tends towards positive infinity. |

f. |
This curve indicates the function is a cubic that extends from Quadrant III to Quadrant I. This means it must have a positive leading coefficient and degree 3. As the *x*-values decrease, the graph tends towards negative infinity. As the *x*-values increase, the graph tends towards positive infinity. |
