Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since 1/6 is a zero on factor is \[x\frac{1}{6}\] another is \[x+\frac{2}{3}\] so you could write \[(x\frac{1}{6})(x+\frac{2}{3})\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but instead you would probably write \[(6x1)(3x+2)\] standard form means multiply this out to get \[18x^2+9x2\] if my algebra is correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And then what? Use the quadratic formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no. you already have the zeros. you were given that the zeros are \[\frac{1}{6}\] and \[\frac{2}{3}\] so you are not being asked to find the zeros. this question is asked in reverse. not "here is the equation, find the zeros" but rather "here are the zeros, find the equation"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the equation would be my final answer then, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you are given that the zeros are a and b then the equation must have been \[(xa)(xb)=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes the equation is what you were asked for. if i multiplied out correctly, your answer should be \[18x^2+9x2=0\]
