My textbook tells me that "An even-degree polynomial function has the same end behavior" and "An odd-degree polynomial polynomial function has opposite end behaviors".

Why is it that when I try to graph let's say "x^4 + 10x^3 + x^2 +x + 1" the end behaviors are opposite even though the function is an even-degree polynomial function?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
