Homework Help: Question about transformation f(x)

  1. Sep 28, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2x^4 + 2x^2 +2x

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    if i have a function like 2x^4 + 2x^2 + 2x

    And i factor out a 2x.. as so 2x(x^3 +x +1)

    Does that change the graph of the function? will it be a 3rd degree func instead of a 4th ?
