# Math: End Behavior Algebraically ?

The function f(x) is defined below. What is the end behavior of f(x)?

f(x) = -140x^4 -3728x+3360-20x^5+580x^3+4x^6+520x^2

Can someone please answer this and provide an explanation?

End behavior is dependent of the term of the highest order

in this case it's 4x⁶

since 6 is an even exponent both ends will go in the same direction

and with the leading coefficient being positive

both left and right end behavior will be to +∞ <–––––

This can be confirmed by graphing
