Hello, I have a question stating "The following set of points belong to a function: (2,54)(1,(0,0)(1,6)(2,22)(3,36)(4,12) Based on the set of points, answer the following questions: a) what type of function does the set of points produce? Supply all evidence, you may want to use a table of values. b) determine the leading coefficient of the function. I have not been instructed on answering any question like this yet and my assignment is due very soon, please help and thank you.

The points all lie on the quartic y = x^4 + 4x³ + 3x = x(x³  4x²  3).
