Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The solutions are synonymous with the zeros or the roots. The xintercepts 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ex: if the equation was: x^26x+9, you would split it into: (x3)(x3). This means the zero is at 3. It also means that at 3, there is a multiplicity since x=3 happens twice
