end behavior => consider the highest power, if

the power is odd and coefficient + => right up,left down

the power is odd and coefficient - => right down,left up

the power is even and coefficient + => right up,left up

the power is even and coefficient - => right down,left down

.......................................................................................................

y = -(x-1)^2(x+3)(x-3)

=> highest power = -x^4

the power is even and coefficient - => right down,left down
