So for a) the answer is any x values greater than r is where p(x) is positive, right? Right, except for x= s and x=t, because then P(x) =0 not >0

For b) the answer is any x values less than r is where p(x) is negative, right? Yep

For c) the answer is 2 and d) the answer is 2. Am I correct? Yep. Yep.

Just one last question. Between r and s on the graph, how did you know that the y value is bigger than the y value between s and t?

It may not be, you don't know how high the max points are. That's why (e) says to sketch a __possible__ graph.
