Use the leading coefficient test to indicate the end behavior of the graph of the polynomial function. Indicate the zero of the function. f(x)=-2x^3(x+5)^4(x-3)^2 I need help with this problem. I don't even know where to begin.

So the degree of f(x) is p and the lead terms will be of the form (why?) as as again why? Since it is already factored the zero's are Good luck.

Lets look at one part We distributedthe whole thing out (we don't need to) to find the highest power of x . Well to get that terms we would multiply x by x by x by x so our lead term will be
