    Question Antiderivatives

    True or False: If p(x) is a polynomial function, then one of the antiderivatives of p has a graph that passes through the origin.

    I believe this is true, but I'm not positive...

    Let P(x) = a_0 + a_1 x + a_2 x^2 + \cdots + a_nx^n be some arbitrary polynomial function.

    what would its antiderivative look like? does it pass through the origin?
