If you are looking at a graph of a quadratic equation, how do you determine where the solutions are?

    Do you mean the zeroes?

    i am just starting on quadratic equations i think its asking me what i would look for to determine a solution

    The solutions are synonymous with the zeros or the roots. The x-intercepts are the points where the graph crosses the x axis. The x coordinates of these points will represent the solutions or zeros of the quadratic equation.

    Ok, so this is referring to finding the zeroes. To do this, you simply split the quadratic equation into two separate equations and and solve for x

    Ex: if the equation was: x^2-6x+9, you would split it into: (x-3)(x-3). This means the zero is at 3. It also means that at 3, there is a multiplicity since x=3 happens twice
