{{ printedBook.courseTrack.name }} {{ printedBook.name }} To determine which of the sentences that best describes the end behavior, let's look at what's happening at the maximum and minimum visible $x-values.$ What is the end behavior of the graph when $x$ is increasing?

We can see that as $x$ increases from left to right, $y$ is decreasing at the ends of the graph. Now, what is the end behavior of the graph when $x$ is decreasing?

As $x$ decreases, $y$ is increasing at the ends of the graph. Therefore, the third sentence correctly describes the end behavior of the given graph. $Asxincreasesydecreases,and asxdecreasesyincreases.$ Please note that although there is a portion of the graph where $y$ increases as $x$ increases, this is the middle portion of the graph and therefore is not included in a description of end behavior.
