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
