Adjust the slider values for

**a**,**p**,**m**,**q**, and**n**in the window below to change the leading coefficient of the function, the*location*of its x-intercepts, and the*multiplicity*of those x-intercepts.In the window to the left of the graph, you can see the equation for the graph and note the changes that result from each slider's behavior.
